Design Wall Monday - October 24, 2010

This was one of the projects that I worked on at my two day retreat last week. I put them on the design wall yesterday to see how they all played with each other and as an inspiration to make a block hopefully every day or two until all the FQs are used up.



Yesterday I didn't have any errands to run, didn't have to take the kid anywhere and I had finished up all my chores for the weekend so I spent the day quilting. I quilted five table runners and then got bindings on three of them by machine and bindings made for the other two. I will have plenty of bindings to work on at night while watching TV. I think I have about 7 more runners and one more Christmas quilt I want to finish up for craft shows. I don't need to finish them all by the first show (November 6th) but want to have everything finished by the second show which is right before Thanksgiving.

Today I have lots of errands to run and a customer quilt to get on the frame. I hope to sneak in enough time to make a couple of batik blocks or to get the binding on the other two runners.

Very pretty batiks and the pattern allows them to shine.

What's happened to your 10 minute challenge? Haven't heard you talk about it in awhile. Sounds like you have your binding assignment for the better part of a month...well that's just enough time though as the show before Thanksgiving is just about that much time!

A long day of sewing on pretty batiks sounds nice! Great blocks and progress on all your table runners.

Your batik blocks are beautiful: you will have a striking quilt. And it sounds like you have been getting a lot done. Doesn't that make you feel good?
