Design Wall Monday 11-11-13

Wow, did this past week zoom by.  And, this week doesn't look like it will be any slower.  Does time speed up the closer we get to the big holidays?  ie, Christmas and Thanksgiving? 
First off, I made the block for Queen Bee, Ashley.  Lots of triangles but not all that hard.  I like that it is a big block! It will go in the mail to her soon.  (Note to self, get it mailed!) 

Both of these baby quilts were turned in to Country Piecemakers this past weekend.  They will go to the neonatal unit at one of our local hospitals.  I had a third one almost ready but it didn't get finished.  Don't I look bored in the green quilt pic?  

On to the goals. I thought I hadn't gotten much done so I was surprised when I got to the end to realize I had gotten quite a bit done -- there's was a lot on the list. 

Week of November 4, 2013

Finish binding on bright and white

Speaking of Ellie -- Kevin sent us a couple of pictures last night.  I thought this one is too cute.  The white to the right is Mommy keeping her snug.

Take a look at Design Walls around the internet by first visiting at Patchwork Times. 

 Happy Quilting All!
