Design Wall Monday 1-9-12

First -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN... 29 years ago my son was born.  Hope your year is fantastic. 

On to the design wall... 

Sorry, not much to show you.  I am working on something that can't be shown for awhile.  

But here are the three quilties  I received from the swap last month. First is by Tove in Phoenix, Az.

 And, last by Sandy Rowe.  Hers was a bit bigger than the rules but it is so darn cute.  All the bells tingled and jingled when I carried it down from the studio.  Love the buttons too. 

Last Week's Goals

Finish the 12 Days of Christmas Mystery √ at least all blocks are done
Put the Chip and Strips top, mystery from Planet Patchwork √ all blocks are done
Baste and quilt Twister Quilt um, no, didn’t happen
Make practice block for secret project
Cut out the rest of the secret project and begin stitching √ 6 blocks done more cut out
Make 4 more blocks for EFCQuilter’s Komen donation quilt √ I’ve lost count – need 5, maybe 6 more as I duplicated one of the blocks.  Bummer.
Yuck, vacuum the downstairs.  √ and even did a great pre-clean up vacuuming of the studio.

  1. cute little quilts you have there! Happy BDay to Kevin!
    were does the time go. I have a 29yr old son too. geeze-louise!

  2. Great little quilts. My son turned 29 in October. Guess that makes us middle aged. lol

  3. The little quilts are darling: I do love the bells and buttons on the last one.

    I have all of the blocks made for the 12 Days of Christmas but I can't decide if I want to remake a couple of them in different fabrics. Sashing fabric is picked out, but the borders are giving me fits. I know I should just close my eyes and pick.

  4. love the post cards, how cute. Good luck with your goals for the week.

  5. Very cute little quilts--how fun to get those in the mail. Good luck on reaching all your goals. I need to spend 15 minutes a day on my scraps too!
