Design Wall Monday 11-4-13

Late today as I was out of the house at 8:15 on my way to pick apples! Sadly, I have nothing new of mine to show today. But I can show you what is going back on Ruthie. 
Michelle won these blocks from our block lotto at the retreat.  She quickly sewed them into a baby quilt and passed them on to me to quilt and bind for her.  Hopefully I'll have that all done by this Saturday's meeting.  I won 6 of them also but I haven't decided whether I want to make more or do something with only 6.... decisions, decisions. 

Next up is a label Jenny has made for her Row Along quilt. (Hum, I don't think I've taken pictures of it since I've gotten it.  Notice she has me down for quilting it... and this pic is from June! I received the backing from her last week so it is in line to be loaded on Ruthie.  Luckily she doesn't want it back until we see her in early December. 

How about my goals... not the most productive week but I had several events happening so didn't have as much time to stitch.

  1. Six blocks would make a small table topper or a runner.

  2. I got behind in reading your posts. Congratulations on the birth of Miss Elise!
    You're not alone in having acquired more than you've used so far this year.
    I made quilt very similar to your lotto blocks.
    Hope this week will be pleasantly productive!
