Design Wall Monday


Can you believe this is the last Design Wall Monday for 2012???  This is what my bed looked like Sunday afternoon.  These are all the blocks from Barrister's Block Sow-A-Long.  This project started February 1, I started mine March 22.  I am pleased to say all these blocks are now in a quilt top.  I still need to add the top and side sashing and the inner and outer borders.  I truly believe that they would be on but my iron decided today was the day to stop working!  Ugh! I get so frustrated with cheap made products.  


I sat down early Sunday morning and sewed up the last 3 blocks.  Then I took them to my bed to lay them all out.


When I was happy with them, I stacked them up and pinned them into rows.  Ernie was all comfy watching his "man shows" so I hid in the sewing room and sewed my little heart out. I'm happy that this quilt is at this stage and the blocks are not going to be listed on the 2013 UFO list.

Good JOB! I'm happy to see your blocks getting finished. They are similar to the Farmer's wife and Mine is still waiting to be quilted. I haven't made my 2013 UFO list yet. Congrats on being one of the most often commenters on Judy L's Blog!

Nothing can bring a quilter to a dead stop faster than a broken iron. Great looking blocks! Congratulations on getting them finished in 2012.

Congratulations with getting all your Barrister Blocks done! I was sooooo good at keeping up and then I volunteered to do the BOM for my guild and my time got eaten up with planning and designing and making samples and writing instructions and whatever else will ganner me some pity. Let's just say I'm behind and leave it at that....but I will get them done. Oh, and Bonnie's mystery -- just one step behind on that. Yeah! Happy New Year to you and Ernie!!
