Design Wall Monday 2-11-13

Lots of little things on the Design Wall today: 
Blocks for a drawing at Faithful Circle Quilters.

Sharon was here this weekend and brought directions for this cute little tissue cover.  She's become an addict -- calling them quilter's crack. She's made dozens in the last week or two.  I have to admit they are very easy and really cute.  I don't think I'll become an addict but you never know. 

We played with the embroidery module for Bubbles.  Sharon was tickled to embroider this on a black t shirt.  I've got a grey sweatshirt ready to go but didn't take the time to do it yet.  Maybe in the next few days seeing as I have all the thread.  The only thing we thought we would change is the little patches at the bottom.  Why are they mostly beige?  Weird.  

And, finally the coffee cups for the Queen Bee group I'm in.  My turn is coming up in March.  I need to write up directions and figure out my fabrics. Luckily I already know which block I am going to use. 

I did great on my goals last week, especially since I had so many of them.

  1. Congratulations on getting so many projects done! I like the sweatshirt lettering.

  2. You did get lots done! Great job! I really like those top blocks. They look like a great group project b/c you could easily trim them all to the same size (if needed) and they have a great graphic appeal. The tee shirt embroidery is awesome, too.

  3. The blocks for your group's swap are fun. I like the partial frames with the focus fabric.

  4. Love your blocks and the tissue holder. Your coffee cups looks good enough to drink out of. Hugs

  5. Good for you! Getting things done makes one feel great. I love your coffee cup blocks.
    I'm just getting around to the DWM posts.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
