Design Wall :)

I’ve got something new going on on my design wall!   Wow, lousy picture, I need a better lighting setup for DWM pictures 🙁   Check out Judy’s Design Wall Monday post for other DWM posts.

Here are my November First Saturday blocks:

I’ve sewn all the units from steps 1 & 2 of Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll (RRCB) and started working on the borders for Topsy Turvy Nine Patch (finally)!!

I laid out my Technicolor Yawn blocks to decide if I want to add any kind of a border to it.  I’m leaning towards a 2″ red inner border followed by two rows of scrappy squares.

I finished the 5th step for the Stay-at-home-robin (SAHR).

Cotton Boll

Tamera (of Tamera Quilts) commented on my post yesterday and, through an email exchange, we both committed to start Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt, Roll Roll Cotton Boll last night.   So I pulled some greens and started cutting 2″ pink & green strips for Step 1.   I even started sewing 🙂  My only rule for this quilt is I have to use fabrics from my stash… new purchases for it, I’m serious, no new fabric!!

Wall, What Wall?

It’s Design Wall Monday again and I’m usually excited about it but that’s because I usually have something new up.  Not so this week….boring 🙁  Click over to Judy’s DWM post to see some exciting design walls 😉

I did accomplish something this weekend…..drum roll, please……I have ALL the blocks for Technicolor Yawn sewn.   YEA!!  Here are all 18 “A” blocks and 17 “B” blocks, ready to sew into a top.   In fact, I was humming along on these blocks, having such fun, that I ignored that voice in my head that said, “You should spend a bit of time working on something else so you have some new on the wall for DSM”.

Did you hear that Bonnie Hunter is having another mystery quilt-a-long?   It’s Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll and I’ve been toying with the idea of doing this one.   I pulled two of the colors needed just to see if I’d have enough in my stash as I refuse to buy any more fabric this year.  I’m pretty sure I have enough…….
