Design Wall Monday

I've had a pretty productive week in the sewing room considering
 I am still dealing with this hacky cough and cold. 

My list for last week:
Goals for this week:
  • Finish last 2 months of Tell It To The Stars.  Done and excited for the September clue.
  • Make back for hexagon quilt.  Done!!  Used lime green shirting that I'm sure my recipient is going to love
  • Baste hexagon quilt.  Nope
  • Re-arrange sewing table.  I worked on this for quite a while.  Scraps that were out of control are now in control.  I still need to move machines around the way I want them.
  • Do a UFO Parade blog post--want to join in and make your own list?    Done (it's here) and printed off, pinned so I can see it while at the machine.  :)

I refilled my Circle of Jewels box after working several more jewel sections. Now I'm working on 3 more flowers before going back to the jewels again. This one is finished and the 2nd started.

While working on Tell It To The Stars, I used these 3 blue star blocks for Smith Mountain Morning as leaders and enders.  Then I was on such a roll that I sewed 7 more using the border pieces as their leaders and enders.  Yes, Bonnie and Judy L playing together again this week.  

After seeing someone's Pineapple Crazy picture on Facebook, I had the urge to work on mine. So I pulled out the box and made these border blocks.  Now I really want to work on this again. (See how easily I get sidetracked.)

Right now my design wall is empty but others are not. See them here at Patchwork Times.

Goals for August 25 through August 31:

  • Baste Hexi quilt.
  • Quilt Hexi quilt.
  • Bind and finish Hexi quilt.
  • Finish blue star blocks for Smith Mountain Morning.
  • Sew 5 Pineapple Crazy blocks.
This will keep me busy enough.  Have a great week.
