Design Wall Monday - May 12, 2014

Didn't get to see my daughter for Mother's Day so that was kind of a bummer but with two days left in the college semester and end of term projects due today it wasn't possible for her to come home, she was where she needed to be.  Looking forward to seeing her for a few days after finals before she starts an internship in DC.

The only thing I have on my design wall right now is this one little test block.  It sure looks lonely!

This is my test block.  I will be making these blocks out of a Moda Highstreet charm pack and layer cake.  Once all the blocks are done they will have white sashing and hot pink corner stones.  After making the test block I sorted the fabrics to make nice combinations and then got all the pieces for the blocks cut out.  They are pinned together and in a bag waiting for a sew in or retreat to work on them.

Try to set quilting goals for myself every week but between being in a little bit of a quilting funk and several appointments and activities this week I will just set my goal to spend at least an hour a day in the quilt room and forget about trying to figure out what projects I want to work on.  Whether I am cleaning the quilt room, picking out fabric for the next project or actually sewing something it all needs to be done.

Have a wonderful week and hope you get in plenty of quilting time!

Love those fabrics together! I have not seen that line of fabric, but am going to have to look for it. Hope your quilting mojo returns soon.
