Design Wall Monday - March 3, 2014 and Weekly Goals

What was on my design wall the end of the weekend was my Tiffany panel quilt.  I had purchased these panels for sale in our etsy store and fell in love with it and had to make up one for our foyer.  I added a couple of borders and once quilted I am going to add Amethest and Sapphire crystals to add a little bling.

I fell in love with a simple quilt at the Hampton Quilt Show last Friday so Sunday I spent time pulling fabrics to make my version of that quilt.  Since we are currently having a snow day (sleet followed by between 7 to 9 inches of snow, or at least that is what the forecast says) I think this will be what I work on today.

I had a great week and a down week all combined.  I had a great week because I met all of my quilting goals and had a chance to go with three friends to the Hampton Quilt show.  I had a down week because I found out my DD will not be home from college for spring break later this month.  She is an only child and I had a difficult time with it when she went off to college a year and a half ago.  I have pretty much got used to it by now but now she isn't coming home for break and she is busy applying for internships for the summer and many of them are in DC so if she gets one of those she won't be home for summer either other than an occasional weekend.    I definitely have conflicting emotions about all of it.  I am glad she is happy and doing well in school and is developing a life of her own.  I am also excited for her that she will get a chance to go somewhere for break but I sure miss her.

Ok, what are my sewing goals for this week.  Weather permitting I have appointments a couple of days this week so will try not to make to many goals for myself.

1.  Make quilt top from the above teal and purple fabrics
2.  machine sew bindings on two table runners I quilted yesterday
3.  Quilt Rails quilt
4.  Quilt small Zoo customer quilt

If you are having snow today stay safe and warm and enjoy your snow day!!

Now you've got me curious as to which quilt struck your fancy at the Hampton Rds show. (it was that one wasn't it?) I enjoyed Friday there. It's tough when kids start having lives of their own and not coming home. But it is a good thing too. Enjoy your snow day!
