Design Wall Monday May 28, 2012

At the end of a very productive weekend, I was faced with two big empty design walls.  One held the Scrappy Irish Chain blocks before they got put together into a finished flimsy.  The other used to have the bowtie blocks which are all assembled into rows getting sewn together.  Instead of leaving the walls empty, I started digging through bins to figure out what is next.  Last time I pulled out the star blocks, I couldn't find the tri-recs ruler to make more.  At some point it occurred to me that it was probably still in the box that I took on vacation last year to cut quilts.  Sure enough, there it was right between Goose in the Pond and Smith Mountain Morning.  Both were quilts from Bonnie Hunter's last book that I started working on last summer.  One thing led to another and soon enough, some finished blocks made their way to the wall.

How nice that you are getting to work on UFOs that look so nice. Here in the South summer is a great time to sew: too hot to be outside anyway.
