Design Wall Monday March 7. 2011

It has been a while since I've had anything to show on Design Wall Monday.  Keeping up with quilting and blogging has taken a temporary back seat to getting things going with my new job.  Then Mom asked for a quilt to take along to chemotherapy and those things had to pop to the top of the priority list again.  I'm sure I'll come up with a better name than Mom's Chemo Quilt as things go on.  Sydney and Anna helped to pick out the fabrics.  They've been sketching design ideas out on notebook paper for me to consider.  The names of all of the grand-kids will go on the back, everyone has phoned in a vote for their favorite colors.  Then it will just be a matter of collecting together some photos and I should be all set to go.
