Currently on my design wall are Christmas sampler blocks
Two of my friends are in charge of the block of the month at one of the quilt guilds I belong to, so I have been trying to make blocks, turn them in and try to win them. No luck on the winning so far. I also made 4 or 5 months worth and then there were a couple I just didn't want to put the time into making, and other months I just wasn't able to make them for various reasons.
When I made one in the requested colors to turn in I was also making one out of Christmas fabrics and figured by the end of the years worth (August) I would have enough to make a sampler quilt.
In our recent newletter they requested that anyone that had won blocks or made their own bring in their quilt top to the September meeting. Ok, so finally that got me motivated to make a couple more blocks and get these on the design wall. I am going to make three more blocks, then sash and border this for a Christmas lap quilt. Do you think a thin black sashing would look ok?
The other exciting news of the weekend is that we bought a new car on saturday. This is a Hyundai Sonata, which is a nice midsized car so should be good on gas mileage but also big enough that the three of us could take trips in it.
Hope everyone has a wonderful (and hopefully cooler) week.
