But first, a housekeeping note:
Sometimes when people leave comments, the comments don't come into my email as they're supposed to. Therefore I don't see them until I go into Blogger to moderate and publish them. Because they don't come into my email, I am unable to reply to them. Likewise, I'm unable to reply to comments that come from No-Reply commenters. Please know that I enjoy all the comments you leave, even if I can't reply to you, and I appreciate your visits to my blog. Thanks for allowing me to share my quilting journey with you.

Now onto our regularly scheduled Design Wall programming.
Last week I was working on a simple patchwork of Asian squares, and at social sewing on Wednesday I got the borders added, backing pieced (Thanks, Hiromi!) and batting cut. It's all packaged up ready to be quilted, and I'm on the schedule to use the club's long arm in a couple weeks. I even have an experienced helper to coach me, for which I'm grateful.
This week I'll need a new project to sew on at Wednesday social sewing. A few months ago Libby (Life on the Hill) sent me the cutest Sock Monkey fabric along with some other fabrics. Knowing I make donation quilts for kids, she thought I'd like it. I do! So, how to feature it and what to coordinate with it?
I can feature it in a Plus quilt. I pulled coordinating reds, greys, and tans from my stash and threw in a couple of recycled plaid shirt pieces as well. The red text print also came from Libby and it complements the sock monkey print nicely.
I love the look of plus quilts and yours will be spectacular! Sure to be loved when it arrives at it's forever home!ReplyDelete
Great use for the monkeys! I have a couple of "regulars" who don't show up in my e-mail, also. I have their contact info so I try to make a point of sending them a catch-up note periodically.ReplyDelete
Great organization! I'd also personally make sure I had a photo of the design wall on my phone. Sometimes a quick double check with a photo has saved me from a lot of unsewing.ReplyDelete
Kits are always a good way to go with so many parts. I always take a photo too, of my planned layout. Have fun.ReplyDelete
That's going to be SEW darling, Jan! Did you get it sewn yesterday?ReplyDelete
Very cute little boy quilt. It looks nice and is also easy to piece, a bonus! Good job.ReplyDelete
