Monday!

Another Design Wall Monday.  Go to Judy’s DWM post for links to other DWM posts.  Here’s my design wall.  Yes, the half hexies are hiding behind the Downy Touch of Comfort quilt.  I was too busy bonding with Sophie to get the rows sewn together 😉


I quilted this it with free style flowers and I’m pleased with the way it turned out.

I  also finished the log cabin quilting and a second Downy quilt.


Here’s the finished tile block.  I had lots of fun working on this and have another one started.  It will be awhile before I work on a third one as I have another Vicksburg FREE BOM ready to applique.


I continued working on the half square triangles for the Pinwheel Party sashing.  I hope to have the pinwheels for at least one of the quilts done by this weekend by working a bit each day.   I’m quilting one more Downy top tonight and then maybe one other charity quilt before I load up another one of my quilts.


Quilting & Kitties

Here’s a shot of the quilting I’m doing on the log cabin quilt.  Don’t inspect too close as I’m an amateur but still in all I’m pretty happy with it.

A while back a gray striped cat adopted us and we named her Rail.  Mind we really didn’t want another cat but she needed a home as she was dumped, along with her kittens on our street.  Our neighbors, the husband which is allergic to cats, took a liking to her as she would join them on walks with their dog…..the cat has a lot of dog traits.  Over time they discovered that as long as the husband washed his hands after touching Rail, he didn’t suffer allergic reactions to her.   So a little over a year later, they officially adopted Miss Rail kitty with the understanding we would provide cat sitting services when they are away.  With that set up, here’s a picture of Miss Rail making herself quite at home in our house this week while her parents are away.

This quilt is perfect for napping

She is a cute little thing.  Of course I have to include some gratuitous pictures of the resident cats or suffer the cold shoulder from one or both them.

What quilt block???


I got off the quilt block so she'd better leave me alone!

It' soooo hot!

And I tried auditioning some fabric for alternate blocks for another 9-patch quilt but I’m not loving it.  What do you think?

DWM & AAQI Priority Quilt Update

First off, here’s my design wall……..it’s a Pinwheel Party!!!  With Block B-1 you end up with an extra one that I’ll save for the back of the quilt.

Check out what other quilters have on their design walls at Judy’s Design Wall Monday post.

Next up, our AAQI Priority quilts have been assigned their registration numbers and are listed on the “Quilts Awaiting Assignment” page, woo hoo!!  They are 4957 thru 4968 🙂  I’ve sent the quilts out today so the pictures should be added soon.

In between watching Molly and her owlets this weekend (got to see the 4th owlet hatch!) I managed to sew the fourth Pinwheel Party blocks, get the binding machine sewn down on two quilts and load Sophie with my next quilt.


DW Monday

It’s Design Wall Monday 🙂  I worked on a few things this weekend.  I got the pieced blocks sewn for the Vicksburg BOM, the first Pinwheel Party block together, made a couple of house blocks for Bumblebeans and worked on piecing the back for my Recycled Cabins top that I finished quite awhile ago. All in all, I got a lot completed.


I got a little bored sewing the backing pieces together…….

for this top……….


So I made another couple of house blocks which didn’t make it onto the design wall 🙂
