Design Wall Monday

Slow and steady wins the race. Isn't that what they say? I hope so, because I've got the slow down pat. A few minutes here and there, I have more rows sewn together. Not many because I've been on a knitting kick. I'll tell you about that tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone that left a get well wish last week. I wasn't going to post about not feeling good but this is my life journal and it had a big effect on what didn't get accomplished. Now I am almost back to my old self and feeling great.


This is my current leader/ender project. I've picked up a few miniature magazines at different retreats and this little quilt has been taunting me. A few Wednesdays ago, I pulled out my little bags of bonus triangles and took them to our Binding Friends day to trim. I got most of them trimmed and am now sewing them together the blossoms for the trees. The finished blocks will be 6" and use up several little half square triangles. I will use the same greens and red that I used on the Crabapple Quilt to finish it.

Head over to Judy L's and see what others have on their design walls.

I thought from the thumbnail you were doing ocean waves. It looks like a great leader/ender project, ala Bonnie H.

Wow, those blocks are shaping up great! I am not nearly organized enough to manage a piecing project and a leaders and enders project at the same time. Yours is really looking nice though.

That's a lot of HST's going on over there!
I need a new leader/ender...gotta get something organized!

Glad you're feeling better!

Some quilts are so bossy. This one seems that way but boy it will be a beauty!

I love the tree of life pattern. I think those HSTs will look great no matter what you end up doing with them.
