Design Wall Monday

Good Morning! I’m getting a slow start today. Hopefully a second cup of coffee will help! First up on the quilting agenda, is to finish quilting this Comfort Quilt. 


I’m quilting a freehand swirl/feather pattern and it is a fairly small quilt so it shouldn’t take too long.

I want to get this tree top together today as well. I’m falling out of love with it so I need to hurry and finish. I’ve decided it is big enough for a generous couch quilt. I might use the extra pieces in the back.  


I need to dye some fabric for Daughter #1’s Baby #2 quilt but since it started raining, I may not get to that today. I have purchased an embroidery/appliqué pack to make blocks and I would like to do a test block today.

I purchased this ruler a while back and just took it out of the package this morning. Sewing curves has not been my thing but I think it is time to try. I even have a couple layers cakes set aside for this.  


Today, the last step for the Country Roads QAL hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts came out. So there is that clamoring for my attention as well. Time to decide on which yellow/cheddar I want to use.  

And that sweater that needed mending? Didn’t happen. But I want to wear it to work. It is so hard to find a goid white cardigan. So maybe today?

The kitchen is clean and the laundry started so it is time to sneak down to the sewing room. Happy Monday!

Linking up with Patchwork Times.

    About your sweater…..I am hoping you have been shown at some time how to “knit it back up”…..so you can catch it at the top with maybe a few stitches and you will never know that there was a hole there. I remember when someone showed that to me…..life changing moment! Such a handy thing to know…..have fixed so many thing through the years. I use a crochet hook to do it.

    Will be very interested in your curved ruler quilts. Like you, curves haven’t been my thing, but maybe with the right pattern….

    I’m very impressed with your free hand on the comfort quilt. When I looked at it I thought it was a panto. Lovely spacing and uniform shapes.

  4. That sounds like a lot! But your past record makes me think you’ll have got it all in hand by the time you read this comment! 😀

    Your quilting is impeccable … I would have never guessed that it was done freehand. I’ve always been intimidated by curves, but maybe with the right tools …
