Where's That Design Wall????? :-)

Yesterday I rolled out of bed and rolled into my sewing room - rolled out long enough to throw some dinner in a pot, eat and clean the kitchen. I sewed and sewed and sewed some more - finally shut it all down at 10:30pm. A great day and much accomplished! WooHoo!!!

60 blocks completed - now where's that design wall? LOL I must get this quilt assembled very, very soon because I received a new pattern in the mail yesterday that I'm very anxious to do. BUT.............I made a silent promise to myself that in 2008 I would quilt my flimsies as I got them pieced. I've been sewing a ton so the 2008 pile of flimsies is growing and there's the one from 2007 that I finished earlier this week. Sigh! What's a girl to do?????? lol

BTW, if you look at my blocks in my previous post you'll notice that I have a Humility Block - yep I confused my light and med tans. Maybe I'll include that lonely block in the backing.

I hope that you've found a few minutes to play with your needles and thread! And, as always, thank you for popping by to see what I'm up to.

In Friendship!

While you're on a roll, pardon the pun, can I send you my flimsies as well. That way we'll both be caught up....lol.... Great work, 60 blocks...

Why relegate it to the back? Proudly display it on the front!

I would include it in the front just as Libby suggested. I think it would make things more interesting - it would make people ask why you did that. I took a class with Dara Duffy Williamson of scrap quilt fame the one time I got to go to Houston. She suggested making as many as 25% of the blocks "maverick" - where the pattern is mixed up a bit - to add interest to the quilt. She showed us lots of quilts where she'd done that and she was right - it really did make them more interesting.

You are just getting so much done in the new year. I finally got in the sewing room yesterday and got the top for my FSQS done and got started quilting it. Not sure what the next project will be but I am looking forward to getting going on something new.

Sounds like a perfect day :) Wow I am in awe--quilt the flimsie's as you finish them! That's what I want to do, but so far it hasn't happened :( Half the time I don't even finish my borders, I am changing some things this year though.
