Design Wall Monday

I added a few more crumby flying geese to the crumb blocks bin. These blocks will finish at 6" but here there look like they are about 24". It was really hard on Friday to stop with just one block. But I did it~and then Saturday I made 3 more and put them up on the wall. Every time I looked at them I wanted to sit down and make more~~but I didn't!

I worked on this instead, April's UFO Challenge project. I am doing the quilt as you go method that I learned watching Betty Cotton on Sewing With Nancy several years ago. After doing one quilt this way and saying I would never do another, I decided to give it another go. And you know what, I'm having a blast doing it this time!

All blocks are quilted, the short sashing is made and 2 blocks are connected. The border fabric is just hanging out there to see if it will live with this quilt........I'll decided after I put on the inner border. I can't wait until I can get in there today to do more! There are no beans to can, zucchinis to take care of or tomatoes to peel. It looks to be a sewing room kind of day!

Go over to Judy L's and see her colorful design wall and then visit other great quilters to see what they are up to.

Your crumb blocks look very fun and colorful! And the April UFO is a real beauty. Glad you are getting some sewing time and enjoying it so much.

Word verification is PROST. I guess they know Oktoberfest time is here!

I have thought about doing a 'quilt as you go' quilt, not sure I am up to the challenge, yet. Yours looks great! I also love the crumbly flying geese.

Cathy said...

It looks wonderful!! You are doing a fabulous job with it.

Your crumb blocks are great. I can see how it would be hard to stop at just one. Sounds like a Lays Potato Chip commercial.
Enjoy your day of sewing.

Your crumb blocks are WONDERFUL. I've been frantically sewing on mine trying to stay ahead of everyone.
