Design Wall Monday - March 17, 2014 and Weekly Goals

I did ok on my weekly goals.  I didn't get the customer quilt quilted but I got everything else plus done.  I spent a day putting crystals on my Tiffany panel quilt, quilted and bound the Winter Inspiration quilt, quilted and bound several table runners and worked on the layer cake quilt.

My layer cake quilt is still on the design wall.  I got the backing made yesterday and then added borders on two sides.  Hope to get the other sides on today or tomorrow.

I also have one of my next projects cut and ready to go.  I had collected black/white and red fabric for a couple of years a few years back.  I have seen several people making black and white quilts lately so decided to pull out my stack of fabrics.  I discovered that I probably have enough black and white for 2 or 3 quilts so thought it was time I made one.

I will be going to a 2 day sewing retreat (no overnight just day time) the next two days weather permitting so thought this would be a great project to take to work on.

We have snow on the ground (AGAIN) so will probably spend a lot of time in my sewing room today, I definitely need something to keep me busy.  DD is currently at the airport hoping to fly out to Florida today (already has a several hour flight delay), I know I will be a nervous wreck till I find out she has reached her destination.

As far as goals for the week.   Think I will just stick with finally getting the customer quilt quilted and leave it as that.  I have the two day retreat with the guild and then a day of sewing with another sewing group so I know I will get loads done this week, just not exactly sure what.  I like to take 2 or 3 projects with me so I don't get bored with one thing.

Hope you have a great week, with NO MORE SNOW.

Love your layer cake quilt, it just screams spring (I'm more than ready for that season to appear).

Enjoy your retreats!

Sounds as if you have a full week planned with needle and thread...I love those kinds of weeks! Reading through the lines; I'm happy to be part of your inspiration. Quilts black/white and a bright are eye catchy. Anxious to see how yours progresses. I assume all that binding took place in front of a fireplace or during the day by a warm sunny window. Mother Nature needs a change of mood. Oh, SewWhatElse has a new blog post!!! Enjoy your sew gatherings, Sandi
