Design Wall-Week 16

3 little monkeys jumping on the bed, one fell off and went to find his dog food. Tony had played long enough.
Elliot and Clella spent the night Friday night so their parents could go out on a real date. They got up extra early on Saturday morning so Poppy layed down hoping that Clella would go back to sleep for a couple more hours. They made it an hour-Elliot and I snuggled up on the couch. Then it was game on. Poppy was the best toy of the day.

About noon, I went up to have lunch with friends at the quilt retreat that I had to pass on.
(After a couple emails and comments, please know my grandchildren did not have anything to do with me missing the retreat. Although, I would miss anything if my family needed me.)
After watching show and tell, I was inspired to sew. So I grabbed my basket of leader and ender half square triangles and started putting together more depression blocks. I assembled 6 more blocks and have lots more HSTs to be put together. I am almost ready to call this a complete top and add some borders and get it quilted. I also just discovered there is a mistake in the top right block! At least I spotted it now.
On Friday afternoon, I also went visiting at the retreat. I was feeling quite pouty about not being able to be there with my friends. Then I came home and worked some more on this quilt top. After it has hung up there for a while, I see that I have a couple squares out of order. This is supposed to be a calendar quilt. I was going to leave it alone but now it's driving me crazy. So I have some unsewing to do before I go forward. I think I like the border corners. Something simple. I'll use the gold for the binding because I don't have enough of the brown.

Head over to Patchwork Times to visit Judy L and to see what everyone else has on their design wall. I love Design Wall Monday.

Great quilt on the bed!
You're such a good person to give up a retreat for the little ones...I'm pretty sure I couldn't resist a quilting retreat for any reason!
I would have to rearrange the blocks too, because it would always bug me if it was out of order.

That quilt is fabulous - I love the corners too - and the designs and the sashing - and does it want to come live at my house? :-)

Love your depression blocks. It's on my list of must do one day
