Manic Monday

My DH mentioned the Bangles “Manic Monday” song and now I can’t get it out of my head!  Design Wall Monday’s continue to be a great motivator for me.  My first DWM post was back in August 2009! Hop over to this week’s DWM link up on Judy’s blog here.  I have some new First Saturday blocks on my wall this week. 

I completed the Sept alternate block and both the main and alternate blocks for October, woo hoo!

I’m leaving for a retreat Wednesday and I spent some time calculating yardage for my setting choice as well as cutting the fabrics for the Civil War BOTW quilt by Barbara Brackman.

And here are the three in-progress projects I’m hoping to complete while in Shipshewana…….I can do it, right? The brightly colored project is Judy Laquidara’s Topsy Turvy Nine Patch which I worked on at retreat two years ago.

Here’s to many hours of sewing, companionship and laughter in Shipshewana!


Stash Report –

  • Fabric in:  1 yards (another GW jumper)
  • Fabric out: 0 yards 
  • YTD Fabric in: 118.5 yards

Happy Quilting, Cherie

  1. Cherie, All of your blocks look like winners to me. Have a blast at retreat!! One of these days I may try to go there and see the area and sew, sew, sew. I hope you accomplish your goals there this time. I’ve at least finished my Topsy Turvy 9 patch quickly, but that’s all I can brag about finishing.!

  2. LOL! Now Manic Monday will be in *my* head … and it’s already Tuesday!! Your blocks look great! I especially like the September/October blocks — great colors!!! 🙂
