Design Wall Monday 7-4-11


Nothing will be happening in the studio today.  The design wall is just a little changed from this week.  I finished all of the broken dishes blocks and all of the chunky churn dash blocks.  I've started to sew the blocks into rows.  (hum, maybe I should have taken a picture....) 

Here are a couple of little things I finished this week. 

I made these towels based on a design by Karen Comstock.  They actually are for three little quilts that can be displayed on a triplet metal frame.  I thought they would look great on a couple of hand towels for my bathroom.  Bad me!  I didn't think about how the lame would react to washing.  So, if it falls apart I will cover the gold lame stars with yellow cotton fabric.  I'll find out soon how well it holds up.  

Hopefully soon  I will be able to get a picture of this little onesie dress modeled by Sophie.  I didn't have a pattern just a picture on my cell phone of the dress on display at a fabric store.  I think I should have cut the onesie up a little higher.  And, probably put a little more fabric into the skirt.  That said, I think it will look great on Sophie unless the onesie is way too big on her.  

Goals for week of 6/27/11
