Last Design Wall in June

Not much on my design wall today.  Check out Judy’s DWM post for links to quilters who just might have a bit more going on than I do 😉

The wonky log cabin block is for Anna Maria Horner’s RAINBOW around the block effort which you can read about here.  The pinwheels, all 4 of them, are all the further I’ve gotten on the Pinwheel Party quilts.  I’ve been giving my left hand a rest for a week or two since I’ve been experiencing pain when holding down rulers for cutting and holding fabric when appliqueing.   I’m thinking I need to get one of those hand support gloves to help…..I’ve not been happy about this break 🙁

I finished the half hexie top.  I’ve named it Pop Beads because it reminds me of the plastic beads for toddlers that you pop together.  It looks better in person…..the horrible lighting on my design wall makes the dark pink  appear a bit drap in the pictures.

I did get Sophie in better running order and finished the Pirate Downy quilt.  Sophie is not back to normal because quilting from right to left causes the thread would break so I quilted only moving left to right.  I’ll load up a practice piece and see if I can’t get Sophie running perfectly again.

Since I finished the half hexie top I have an update……

Stash Report – Note to Lori: I haven’t received my giveaway fabric so I don’t have to count it yet.

We had a kitty visitor again this weekend.  Rail thinks my freshly quilted log cabin is the perfect sleeping place 🙂
