Design Wall Monday 5-5-2014

My design wall is probably empty.  I haven't been in the studio since last Monday as I was out of town for most of last week.  So I snuck a picture of Sharon's little curved piecing wall hanging.  She finished it while I drove home yesterday.  I forget what the ruler she used was called. I know she has added two borders although one may actually be a flange.   But it made a cute block.  I'll take another picture of it this weekend when she comes to visit. (Yes, weird that we're seeing each other two weekends in a row... but that is how it worked.)  

And here are some of my purchases from the vendors at the quilt show. Yep, I didn't go all that wild.  I did buy a small kit for a wool pincushion and a birthday present that will remain hidden.  Hum, I guess it is time to unpack.  The two plastic bags are templates for the blocks shown.  I've tried to make that peaceful star block on the left and just didn't get it right.  I'm trying again with accurate templates.  (At least someday I will!) 

Surprisingly all of last week's goals were done!  (Ok, so I was very purposeful when I selected those goals!)

  1. That is a cute block - I love the curve but do not like sewing them.


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