Design Wall Monday

Not too much on my wall this morning as the past week was hectic with my daughter working double shifts and then going out of town for two days ... I did manage to get some more of the Windfall blocks done. The blocks are pieced fairly quickly and the curves are getting easier now too.  At first, it was a bit of a challenge, but that's probably because it's not something I've done before, but I am able to get them done without any pins!

I also managed to finally get Linda's Disney Princesses off the frame yesterday afternoon.  All I have left to do on this one is to get the binding on!  I quilted it with another pantograph by Hermione Agee and the pattern is called Twine.  Hermione is an Australian and I love her pantograph designs!

I have included a picture of our 3 youngest granddaughters . . . this is our version of Sleeping Beauties!

The Disney Princesses are on the frame!

I have Linda's Disney Princesses on the frame now as she needs the quilt before Easter and we are leaving on Thursday for DC!  She used all the scraps from the star points (flying geese) in her border.  It is so cute, some lucky little girl is going to be ecstatic when she sees this Easter morning . . .

Design Wall Monday

I got a new ruler last week, a Creative Grids Slotted Ruler, so of course I had to make something with it! I am chain piecing several blocks right now, so I only have 4 blocks on the wall, and they need to be squared up. I think it's going to be pretty cool when it done . . .


I did really well on my 3 goals from last week, got the t-shirt quilt quilted, and almost have the binding on, and have only just begun the foot portion of my sock, but I am happy with my accomplishments.

Stash Report - Week 15

There has been a minuscule amount of activity here as I started a new project (yea, I know, I need another project like I need a hole in my head . . . .) but I purchased a new Creative Grids Ruler and just had to make something from it!  Stay tuned tomorrow for Design Wall Monday where I hope to show you what I'm working on.  I am posting this from my husbands laptop as my desktop computer fried last night, so I am not too sure how to get pictures on this one . . .

It's off the frame!

Last night I finished quilting Corinne's Quilt, so today I hope to get the binding sewn on.  That's 2 things checked off my Weekly Goal List!  Doesn't look like I'll get to the third thing though, finish knitting the mate to a sock . . .

Design Wall Monday

Well, I posted 3 of my goals last Monday and was able to get one of them done.  I'm disappointed, but hey, done is done!  I will try harder this week.  Once again, Corinnes's t-shirt quilt is still on the list for sashing and I've now added quilting it as another goal.  That is my biggest goal this week as there are a few other projects with deadlines that are fast approaching!
        • finish knitting sock
        • Sash Corinne's t-shirt quilt
        • Quilt Corinne's t-shirt quilt

Second one done, still many, many more to go . . .

Finished the second quilt on the longarm and even got it bound. So the next project in que is to add some sashing in-between the rows to quilt No. 3 and then hopefully, get that one loaded on the frame.  That is my goal for today - baby steps!  Tomorrow I hope to begin quilting it with just a large stipple meander, so it shouldn't take too long . . .  

Stash Report - Week 14

Again, I have nothing new to report as I have been busy on the longarm trying my best to get caught up with customer quilts.  I cannot for the life of me figure out why I procrastinate so . . .
