My Design Wall Monday

My design wall is so full you wouldn't believe it.  Too many great patterns, great fabric, and great weather.  I don't know, but I'm inspired this week.  I sure hope it continues!


I started the day out at my son's basketball camp.  I had packed my bag and was sure I had everything...everything that is except for a SCISSORS!  I know, I know, I usually have a scissors in my purse, bag, and car at all times.  But today there were no scissors anywhere..and I didn't even have my dental floss along that could snip threads in an emergency.  Thank goodness I had my trusty glue pen, cut fabric, and paper hexies.  I basted instead (the hexies), and I also spent time chatting with another mom.  It was an enjoyable morning to say the least.

When we returned home I started cutting (finally) my Vignette Mystery Quilt (the bright strips above).  I've added a few more fabrics in the last couple of weeks because I just felt like it was missing something.  Hopefully soon I will finish cutting and get some sewing started.  I can't wait to see how these Shoo Fly blocks turn out.


My This and That BOM has been a bit troublesome this month.  I ended up having a wrong fabric cut in my kit, so we had to go and pick that up today too.  We are very close to finishing this, and I refuse to give up now!

I'm still trying to add a few more fabrics to my Warm Cool Quilt Along at http://incolororder.blogspot.com/.  I also somehow found myself joining in The Farmer's Wife quilt along at http://msmcporkchopquilts.com/.  There are only 111 blocks in that quilt, UH HUM...but I only need to finish two blocks a week.  I'm still chosing fabrics from my stash for the Kaliedoscope quilt at http://dontcallmebetsy.blogspot.com/ (that doesn't start for another week). 

I'm linking with Design Wall Monday at http://www.patchworktimes.com/.  If you get a chance, go see what everyone has been working on.  Happy Stitching!  --Kristen
