It’s design wall Monday :) I started sewing my civil war block-of-the-week (BOW) blocks together….it’s only been since Feb 2013 that I’ve had all the blocks, including the setting blocks, completed. Shesh!! All it took is a guild challenge to bring a UFO finished to the flimsy stage to our September meeting to get me sewing on them. So here’s the design bed
I also finished my name from the letters I made taking Lynne Tyler’s workshop. The name block that’s been on my design wall is now destined to be part of a kitchen sink quilt so I needed a new one.

Happy Quilting, Cherie
Catching up on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and First Saturday blocks, woo hoo! I’m not completely caught up since the RSC liberated churn dash blocks aren’t finished….but all the rest are DONE and on the design wall :) Check out Judy’s DWM post here.
This is the end of the Fox Sails the Greek Isles First Saturday and with the start of the The Fox in the Forest in August, I thought I’d better get June & July blocks done.
My DD sent me a beautiful Mola from Columbia for my birthday. It’s wonderful and I LOVE it. I’ll have to come up with a plan for it but I think it’s destined for my office. Thank you, Jennifer :)
It is DWM but with nothing new on mine I thought I’d share a quilt block barn we saw this weekend while traveling.
Here’s an ECU (extreme close up)….pretty complicated block!
And just for fun, here’s the Ryan Round Barn we stopped to check out.
I have a finish. Even though it’s a small doll quilt, it’s still a finish
This is Mountain Trail from the quilt-along on Lori’s Humble Quilts blog way back in 2012. I made it “just because” for my SIL from civil war scraps. I sewed it on my newest featherweight and hadn’t quite adjusted to a 1/4″ seam on her. So, a few places don’t match up perfectly but that’s in keeping with a humble quilt, no? I hand quilted it with red and cream thread. So nice to finish something
I took a blogging break. Wow, I didn’t plan that! There has been a bit of sewing going on so I said enough, just post already! Two of the blocks I’m doing for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge are caught up (that’s April, May & June blocks, folks!) I have the string blocks done for the liberated churn dash blocks so I’ll get those caught up shortly too. July’s color is red :) I’m linking up with Judy’s DWM post here.
I got the most recent GW acquisitions added to the stash.
Other than that I’ve been very, very good ;)
