Design Wall Monday

WaaHoo, I sewed! and sewed and sewed!!!

Beach sewing square in a square blocks.

These will be a border for an upcoming UFO finish.

More beach sewing.
The final blocks for Mischief Quilt.
The 1st 2 rows are being sewn together.

Deli Geese was May's UFO and it's now complete.
It's headed for the beach for outside sitting.

I started a new project. 

I saw this quilt on the TV show Home Improvement.
I had to back it up, pause in just the right place and take a picture.
Then I started doing an internet search until I found a picture of  a whole quilt.
That story lead to this story at Piece N Quilt.

So I got out some recycled shirt fabric and then ordered diamond papers from Paper Pieces.
When the papers arrived, I had to cut fabric.
Then I had to baste a few.
They are large enough that I won't glue baste. 
I need lots more variety.
I need lots more time to cut but until I do, I have plenty to baste right now.

Check out the fabulous design walls that are linking up at

Fun times at the Beach!! I need that Square in a Square ruler. The simple folded ruler along with Bonnie's Essential Triangle Tool might work too. Love it for a border. Happy Monday.

I like to sew at the beach too. Hubby works around the place and I sit at my featherweight looking out at a golf course and a pond. I get lots done there when we go. The afternoons are tourist time. I wish I had some shirts I could send you. You really have a lot going on. Fun!

I'd love to be at the beach right now. Soon, Ramona...soon. :) You've sure been busy with your beach sewing! I'm amazed you could find the quilt from the tv show on line. It's going to be so nice made out of recycled shirt fabrics. Looking forward to watching your progress.
