Design Wall Monday

 You don't know how excited I was to see that Judy L pulled UFO  #9 for this month's challenge.
It just happened to be Jamestown Landing for me.
I had already been working on it.

After completing all the blocks and sashing pieces,
I set them aside to make the border string blocks.
Those are all done, de-papered and trimmed.
I'm pretty excited to have all the blocks sewn into rows.
The first picture shows rows 1 & 2 under the needle.

We headed to the beach on Friday.
I knew there wouldn't be much sewing time since we were with family.
What's more important than spending time with family!!!

I decided to take a bunch of strips and do some prep work.
I'm starting Oklahoma Backroads as my new leader/ender project.
This is a free pattern from Quiltville.
Big surprise that I'm using a Quiltville design??? Ha!
So all the neutrals are cut and the ones I needed to mark are marked.
Let me tell you, that Bonus Buddy Ruler Bonnie has is FAB.U.LOUS!!
Now that we are home, I'll pull some squares out and start the 4 patches. 

But first things first,
This week Judy L is hosting another Quiltathon.
See her side bar for the dates.
My project for this one is to quilt Grand Illusion.

That means I need to get it basted before Wednesday!

Check out great projects at Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.

Fun for you at the Beach. Always nice to make another Bonnie Design! Family time is Precious. Still counting the days until MAY< sick of the White Stuff, lol. Quiltathon? Gotta check that out.

You are right... nothing beats time with family. And family at the beach is the best! Your Jamestown Landing blues are so pretty. They just sparkle. Happy sewing!

Thanks for the reminder on the Quiltathon! Funny thing I got out my Easy Street quilt top and want to get it quilted so I think that will be something I may try to tackle in my limited quilting time. I am hoping next weekend won't be as busy! This house stuff is taking too much time. I am still not convinced I like my Grand Illusion.
