Design Wall Monday - August 2, 2010
Not that much on my design wall, just these three blocks. My friend is now in charge of the block of the month at our guild. I decided in addition to the blocks I will make to turn in for the block raffle each month I will make one of each block out of Christmas fabrics.
By next summer I will have enough to make a Christmas sampler. It will be busy as I am not picking the same fabrics every month. I will probably have to sash it is black or something to tone it down a bit.
Here are my first three blocks. The 9-patch was for July, August is the one with the large center, and Septembers is the shaded 9 patch.
Do you set quilting goals for the month?
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't bother, I just work on certain things. I usually quilt 2 or 3 charity quilts a month and I am running out of backings so I guess I will make a charity goal for the month of quilting two hospice quilts and making up two backings.
As for my craft show items, I will continue to work on runners and get as many done as possible this month.
