I'm Back With A Design Wall Monday Post

I certainly didn't intent to take a long blog break, I thought maybe a week or so but it turned into 3 weeks.  I don't know how consistent I'll be now but I'll give it a go today.

I've been putting blocks together!
Virginia Bound and Chunky Churndash leader/ender blocks.
(VB is in Scraps and Shirttails and CC is a free pattern on the Quiltville blog.)
I hope the next time (after the reveal at retreat) you see VB,
it will be a completed quilt.
That's my plan right now. 

In my last blog post I told you about getting sidetracked with these blocks.
I had planned to take these to retreat and work on them.

But my plans changed as I sewed and trimmed just a few more and a few more.
Pretty soon there were no more blocks to take to retreat.
Survivor was on so I grabbed the stack of blocks and an empty trash bag
and plopped myself down on the couch to watch TV and depaper.

On Saturday I got out the Go! Cutter and took care of a pile of scraps.
When that was finished, I decided to go ahead and get the blocks into
4s so I could sew my big blocks at retreat.
I have several of them already sewn together.
I'm now hoping to reveal the finished quilt at retreat 
since I how have a new roll of batting and renewed energy.

We spent a couple weekends at the beach.
The beach always refreshes my soul.

I took along some fabric strips with a plan to cut and kit up some blocks.
I think there are 40 little blocks ready to go.
These will to taken to retreat.
Maybe. 😉

Now I'm headed over to check on what everyone else is working on at

Until next time,
Have a wonderful week.

You've been really productive. You'll have some fun projects to wrap up while you are on retreat.
