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
