Design Wall Monday


I got to sew this weekend! Only for a few minutes but I got to sit at the sewing machine and make a block.  I wasn't going to start anything new, my plan was to make a block for my Row Quilt but...Kathy posted again about Nabby's Dowry Sew Along and then Mary posted about being tempted and then we kind of challenged each other and that's all it took!  I printed off the 5 blocks that have been posted and pulled out my little bin of 1 1/2" HSTs and put together this cute little block.  Isn't that what friends are for? To get you to jump off the bridge with them???


I kitted up a few more hexie flowers and stitched a few more rounds. Today I will take it a little easy-too much activity this weekend-and stitch a few more rounds and knit a few more rows.  But honestly, I am tired of that darn recliner! I want to play outside but I won't! I'll just sit out on the deck and be a good girl.

Glad to tempt you. I like your scrappy block. 1.5" is tiny but we an make a mini with our blocks. You got yours sewn together, good going.
