Design Wall Monday



OhMyGoodness, how did Monday get here so fast!
I'm continuing to sew every day.
Whether it's string blocks or hand piecing.
This is the center hexi for Rosette 9 of Millefiore.
Her name is Judy.
I call her the Center of Attention.
I'm still thinking of replacing the center with an orange hexi.
snicker, snicker


This is round 1. 
With six different fabrics, 
it took me a bit of time to figure out which layout I liked best.
I think I changed it 9 different times.
And I haven't started sewing it together yet,
so I could change my mind 9 more times.

I bought a Moda Scrap Bag from somewhere.
It was perfect for this rosette.


I spent quite a bit of sewing time this week joining my rosettes.
I cannot begin to say how excited I am with this.
Once I add rosette 9 and join rosettes 5 and 2,
I'll have a better idea for color balance in the bottom of the quilt.
This has been such a fun, fun project.



Sometimes I have to earn Good Wife points.
Mending is at the bottom of the fun list but
some things have to be done. 
To replace this rain-wear is expensive.
The elastic suspenders have stretched out beyond their usefulness.
The last time he wore them, 
I had to pin the elastic up.


So I bought a pair of suspenders for the good elastic
and replaced them.
I should get extra Good Wife points for this.
The suspenders were wider than the elastic on the pants
and I needed to use the buckle.
So I fought with it and won.
Function or fashion.

See what others are working on this week at Patchwork Times.

Good Wife Points, YEA! I had to do stuff I didn't want to this past week too.
Life happens, huh? Your mileflore blocks are looking fun. Happy Scrappy stitching.
