Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals - February 24, 2014

My layer cake blocks are still on the design wall but the difference now is that they are all made (last 3 made after this picture) and trimmed.  The pattern calls for white sashing between cut 1 1/2 inches.  Trying to decide if I want to make it slightly wider and cut them 2 inches instead.

I think this is going to be very cute and springy.  

Dear daughter was home from college this weekend so didn't sew much, it was more enjoyable to catch up on everything with her.  I did get a small kids quilt quilted yesterday after she headed back to school.  This one was made by my husband out of left over blocks from a quilt of mine from a few years ago and left over binding strips.  I think he did a great job.

I did meet all my weekly goals.  I quilted 2 customer quilts, quilted and bound two runners and made a backing for the rails quilt.  In addition I finished all the layer cake blocks, made a backing for this bright kids quilt and also got it quilted.  

Goals for this week I am going to keep short with a couple of appointments this week and then several of us going to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show in Virginia the end of the week.  


Quilt 2 small customer quilts
Quilt and bind 2 spring table runners
Cut out 2 more spring table runners 

Have a wonderful week!

The blocks look very pretty. I'd try laying the sashing fabric down with the blocks on it and auditioning 1" wide and 11/2" wide and see which you prefer.

Love the layer cake blocks, very spring like (I'm ready for the colors of spring as well as the higher temps). Your Guy did a great job on the kiddo quilt.

Have fun at the quilt show.

Looks as if you are keeping very busy and accomplishing your weekly goals. Hope DD didn't run into any weather problems on the roads.
