Design Wall Monday - June 30, 2014

So hard to believe it is already the end of June.  I think with my daughter not coming home for the summer from college this year it has messed me up on what month it is!

Currently on my design wall are these 42 blocks made at a recent retreat.  These were made by using one charm pack and one jelly roll (Moda High Street).  Between each block I am going to put white sashing and a hot pink cornerstone.  Have not decided if I am going to cut the sashing 2 or 2 1/2 inches wide so these will sit on the design wall until the decision is made.

I did so much sewing at the retreat last week that I plan on devoting this week seeing how many items I can get quilted on the longarm.   I have a baby quilt partially loaded on the frame now so hope to get that and a few other things quilted this week.

Goals (hopes) for the week:

1.  Quilt Zoo baby quilt
2.  Quilt at least 2 more runners
3.  Make backing for at least one quilt and hopefully get it on the frame
4.  Start on sashing above quilt.

Since daughter will be home for four days the end of the week I don't know how much of this I will get done but if it is like last visit we didn't really see her that much.

I hope you have time with your daughter over the holiday weekend. My niece is coming for a visit arriving Thursday. I have big plans to celebrate the 4th with her. I'd go for 2", but you know I like things smaller...enjoy your week, good luck on your want to do list. Sandi

I like your quilt, good job. I know you will enjoy your time with Mandy. Family is so important. Only problem the time goes so fast.

Cute quilt. Charm packs are so much fun to use.
