Design Wall Monday July 20, 2015

 I pulled out my giant postage stamp block so that I could put on the borders, but there was no white fabric to be found.  How could I be out of white fabric?  I searched high and low and managed to find lots of lost things, but not any Kona white.
Instead I worked ahead on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 Sawtooth Star Sampler Quilt.  Rows 2 and 3 are completely done.  Row 7 is so close, but still missing just a few connector  blocks.  Now all I have to do is schedule the August blocks to post while I am in Costa Rica.  Oh my, so much to do in the next two weeks.  Head over to Patchworktimes to see what other quilters have up on their design walls today.
Today was a work day for me.  I wasn't planing on doing too much training this summer, but I was asked specifically to sign up for this biology workshop on neuroscience.  We made a cockroach leg dance to the song Sexy and I Know It.  It would sound more official if I said that we explored the electrical nature of nervous impulses, but it was pretty fun.  Tomorrow we have to make lesson plans to apply what we learned today.  After that I'd better finish getting lesson plans set up for the first week of school.

That sounds fun... reminds me of the movie Beetlejuice! I am running out of the white dot for the TATW and the creamy print I am using on the sampler. Must find a Joann's coupon and get a wee bit more to finish off the year.

Nice to see the quilt come together; I finally conquered most of my connecting blocks layout! Yippee! Thanks for organizing this! It has been good for me!

I'll look forward to seeing your postage stamp top finished - I like how it's looking at the moment. I've never seen 'cockroach' and 'fun' in the same sentence before!

I just love the look of your postage stamp quilt, might have to try that one. Are there 144 squares in each block? Are they two and a half inches (cut)?

Both the Postage Stamp and the Saw tooth Star quilts are looking great.

Making a roach leg dance? DT would love to have seen that in biology.
