12/21 Design wall's are meant to be crowded!

it seems like mine is always a jumble...until this week! However, if the truth be known, there are blocks hiding under the strips to the scrappy bargello until i get at least one of these off the wall!
One more block and the pick and choose quilt will
have one half of the blocks made! so far i haven't
duplicated any of the dark or medium fabrics in the blocks. Some times it takes as long to make sure I have a med or dark that is new to the quilt as it does to cut!
the scrappy lavendars to purple single Irish chain is a special request for a friend of Leah's. It
has to be done soon and has a large selection of lavendar to purples with no other colors in it!
i will be glad once I get all the 9 patches done...then the rest should go together nicely.
have a great quilty day

UFO is now a baby quilt!

This little quilt was 16 years in the , not because
it was hard. The center was a panel that Miss Leah picked
out for her new nephew...the older brother of the quilt holder
in this picture! I think it will instead go to younger baby! It's been so long since I started this quilt I have no idea
why it was on hold for so long!
the quilt on yesterdays blog is my pick and choose quilt.
I am only making a block a week at this point in time.
if I ever get all 30 blocks cut out I will probably put it away
until I am closer to done. I am cutting the blocks as I work on my scrap management and I leave it up so I do not repeat any of the dark or medium fabric...yes, there are less of the
lights so they are repeated in many blocks. thank you for the posivive feed back on this quilt. I love the way it is coming together!

design wall monday dec 7, 09

I finely remembered to take a Monday design
wall photo. I know its been 2 or three weeks.
I spent the last couple of weeks trying to beat
a deadline...I did get both baby quilts done on
time! I will post the second one as soon as I
get someone to hold it for me.
even after a couple of weeks the design wall hasn't changed much...i spent most of that time trying to get the baby quilts finished. I even managed to get a week behind on my pick and choose quilt...if I get it caught up I will be half way done at the end of the year! don't ask how I got a week a block a week i sure shouldn't have, they are easy blocks!
I am finely starting to work on my scrappy bargello here and there and the ender leaders
slowly gaining. sure hope I can at least see a gain in the progress on the wall next week

One baby quilt done

My machine that i use in the grace frame is very sick...I am going to have to take it in for repair.
The quilting for this little quilt was done on my DSM, it took me much longer to do because
i have done so little quilting this way. I have a second baby quilt about 2/3 quilted hope to get
it done yet this week! I know the week is almost done.

I am so excited...Miss leah and brad will be home for a week. It's been a long time since they both have been home. I wish they lived closer...cutting this short, i have to get back to my quilting...ann
