Design Wall Monday


Quilting has begun on number 3 on the UFO Parade from August.  Thursday morning I cut batting for the next 3 quilts I want to get quilted.  2 were on the list and one needs to be finished before it makes a list. UFO 2 has the backing made but I forgot to cut that batting. Binding for #s 2 and 3 are sewn and pressed waiting in the binding basket.


This is Scrappy Twin Sister and she is finished.  She has aged from September 2010. I think that's plenty long enough. I found this block design in Quiltmaker magazine as one of Bonnie Hunter's Addicted to Scraps Column.  It was so fun to discover all the fun fabrics I put in this quilt.  The back is scrappy flannel squares.  I'll take pictures this week.  Of course I had to have a seam ripper moment. Thank goodness it wasn't more that this little circle.  Aren't those pink poodles a hoot!

 Just for fun, Shirley and Polly have discovered the empty dishwasher. I had to spin the spray arm above them. They are so funny!  No kitties were harmed in the loading of the dishwasher.

Last week's list:
  • Finish Tell It To The Stars   Done-waiting for the November clue
  • Pin baste a quilt  Not only pin basted but quilted and finished!
  • Next block for Wishes, work of border and sashing  Block in finished but didn't start on sashing or border
  • Next step for Friends and Companions  Block is finished.

This week I plan to:
  • Finish the pinwheel quilt
  • Work on Friends and Companions.
  • Work on Wishes.
I can't wait to have Monday morning coffee with friends of DWM at Patchwork Times.

Oh, it feels so good to move the unfinished quilts to the finished pile, doesn't it?!! And it is fun to revisit old fabrics in quilts.

You are getting so much done. I had to really look at the dishwasher to see what the pic was about. Hum, glad my dogs don't want to be in ours. They'd fill it up too much.
