Design Wall Monday


After last week's DWM post, I decided on the barn raising setting for my signature and 4 patch blocks~thanks for all the suggestions. I even played around in EQ7 for a while to see if there was something else I liked more. I had already named this quilt Circle Of Friends so this setting was the most appropriate.

I am sewing it in quarter sections so I can be very careful and get the names going in the right direction. So far each row of the sections are going according to plan.

I've been down with a nasty cold the last few days and haven't felt like doing much of anything.
I parked myself in the recliner with my quilt, knitting and tv remotes, along with my water bottle and box of tissues. Now that I'm feeling better and the party weekend is over, I have some things to catch up on. Like laundry! and floors! and everything else that was neglected!!! Yes, I live the life of a diva................

Happy to hear you are on the mend. And, honestly, floors can wait as can laundry until there is nothing else to wear! I like the barn raising setting for these siggie blocks. Keep plugging away at them.

Wonderful quilt. Glad you are feeling better.

I hope you are feeling even better by the time I get around to reading DW posts. I love your setting and the name of your quilt. DH has been down with a cold, too, and I parked him in his recliner and/or napping in the bedroom. It seems to help.
