Design Wall Monday 3-12-12

Here's design wall one:

These are the 6.5" blocks Sharon cut for me when she was visiting.  I've been adding the sashing as my leader/ender project.  Unfortunately, I haven't done any piecing since Wednesday.  So this hasn't seen a whole lot of action, although as Jenny was sewing I tried to keep her supplied with these pieces.
Jenny finished the quilt she was working on so she could leave it for me to quilt it, hopefully in time to bring it up to her next week. Her quilt is on Design Wall 2. This is for a friend's first baby.  Her friend picked the polka dot border from the colors in the scraps Jenny was using for the bugs and flowers. Sophi's little outfit didn't get started at all. But, I still plan on making it. Of course, I have a customer's quilt coming in this week and a bunch of charity quilts to do too.  Hopefully I'll be able to do it all in a reasonable amount of time! 

I did spend time on Ruthie yesterday.  Pat bought me this "groovy" board and stylus for Christmas.  I realized pretty soon that I need at least two of each  board.  So he helped me line up the board and move it for this little quilt.  This board is a big and little circle.... way cool looking.  
When we were done I took the quilt outside in hopes of getting a sharp picture of the circles.  Unfortunately, I am snapping photos with an old iPhone as my camera broke so I wasn't able to get great photos for the blog. 

(Sorry for the look of this blog.  Blogger wouldn't let me format it the way I wanted to... I thought it best to get it done and posted rather than fight it.) 

So how did I do on my goals?  Not too well!
