Design Wall Monday

This is not really a design wall but my living room curtain with Circle of Jewels pinned to it. I've been a bit obsessed with it this week. After I finish the half jewels, I'll fill the sides in with half flowers and then add borders. This post shows where I was last Monday. What a difference a week makes.  I'm sooooo close!!!

Right now it measures 54" x 56 1/2".  After I add the borders, this will make a be a nice cuddle on the couch or in the recliner quilt.

Last week's plan:
  • Sew back for Pieced Hexies. No.
  • Work on Scrappy Sister's Choice   Yes! I have just a few blocks left to sew together.
  • Baste Pieced Hexies.  No. Like I said, I was obsessed with CoJ.
Plans for this week:
  • Get ready for retreat!
  • Go to retreat!
  • Have fun at retreat!  
  • Circle of Jewels-maybe I can get the black and white part finished and start the half flowers.
See what others are working on at Patchwork Times

What beautiful workmanship on your Circle of Jewels quilt! I love how the black triangles set off the jewel tones and make them sparkle. Have fun on your retreat!

What a fascinating quilt, it looks wonderful.

I'm off to retreat this coming weekend. I love retreats and spending time with other quilters. I hope you have a great time!

Don't you love it when you get obsessed with a project? Mine go
together so much faster then.
