Design Wall Monday



Last Monday, these blocks were shown on my design wall with the border strips laying by them. Then the blocks had been sewn together and now the border strips are waiting to be cut to size and sewn on.

Why was there no progress made? I don't know. I wasn't in much of a sewing mood this week. Probably because I bragged about getting my Mojo back the other day.

Saturday I worked on the UFO on the quilting frame. I'm doing lots of ruler work and I'm stippling in the background. And I am SLOW! The first four blocks have the background work done. I'm doing all the background work first. I'll go back and do the borders, sashing and ruler work with brown thread. Then I'll change to pink thread and finish off all the stitch in the ditch. That's the plan anyhow!

Visit Judy L's and see her design wall, then visit others in Blogland to see what they are working on.

Great use of positive and negative space in the first quilt and your second quilt is fantastic. Some days Mojo or no, you just want to do other things. Have a great week!

Mojo is lacking in my house, too, on both the sewing and knitting fronts. The doldrums have set in again.

I agree, quilting frame work goes very slowly for me too. It will be beautiful when done! (already is!).Spring is coming and that will help us all!

Better to go slowly, and get it the way you want it, than rush it, and not be happy with the outcome. The quilting you've done so far looks fabulous.

Quilting frame work is slow but ohhh so satisfying! I don't know where you are in WA but I know in OR we've had an exceptional amount of rain. I love the rain...except, I'm ready for some dry sunny days mixed in.

Love the bright quilt on your design wall. Sometimes I lose the sewing mood or just don't want to work on the same thing, so I jump to something else. The quilt on the frame is beautiful.

I kind of go through stages with my quilting as well. Good job working on the UFO.

Speed is not as important as enjoyment :)

I really dread ruler work, but once I get going on it I kind of find a rhythm and things start flowing. Here is hoping the same is true with you! And that looks like about a gazillion points on each one of those blocks... LOTS of ruler practice.

I LOVE the bright colors on the top quilt. That should cheer you up even if it does stay cold a rainy a while longer. I wish you could send some of that rain OUR way... hardly any rain this winter, and the spring is forecast to be dry and about average temps. Since this follows a huge drought all last year that is not a good thing!
