Design Wall Monday 8-3-2015

August started as July ended:  way TOO hot! Hopefully it will end without the temperatures being so hot! Enough said. 

I've been finishing little projects recently.  Several I have already shown.  One I'm holding until the Grands are here this weekend.  We're celebrating their birthdays this weekend.  

You've already seen what's on the design wall so I'll show you what is on Ruthie. This is a small quilt and I chose to place a triangle quilt design on each solid triangle and a small, uncomplicated triangle in the floral part of the two colored squares. (Squares?? Really, I mean the triangles.) 
Here's a close up at an angle to see the quilting.  You really can't see any quilting in the floral print centers.  It seems like a waste of time but it does need to be quilted for the integrity of the quilt. 

I've actually been doing quite a bit of piecing this past week.  I've finished one of last year's row from the Row by Row Experience which I showed here. I've got another one well on the way.  I'm making units for Talking Turkey block from the April class with Bonnie Hunter. Here's a bunch of units I worked on watching TV the other night.  

Goals were achieved for the most part.

Do a little studio spiff up work: clear cutting table! 

Here's why I need to clean up the cutting table!  New fabrics, left over fabrics, piles of fabric.  CLEAN it up, girl! 

That's it for this week.  I'm linking up with Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts, and Patchwork Times.  (Anyone else notice that not much quilt talking is going on at Patchwork Times?) 

Happy Quilting All! 


  1. What a perfect quilting design for those triangles!

  2. Isn't it amazing how quickly the cutting table gets cluttered. Mine looks very similar.

  3. I love your triangle quilt! You seem to be getting a ton done. Enjoy those grandkids!

  4. Love the triangle quilt!
    The heat here has been unbearable for me. Washington State doesn't get heat like this! I can't believe I'm wanting rain. LOL
    It sure doesn't take long to get our tables full of stuff. I need to attack mine soon.

  5. I hope for you it is soon less hot.
    The quilting is so well chosen.
    I read your post with a smile. Every times there is more and more on my sewing table, untill I need to organise things. But after a while ......

  6. Yes, way too hot, even here in NH! Love the triangle quilt, good job!

  7. I love my fabric but it takes up lots of space.

  8. I like how you're so organised with a list for the week. I love your triangles, they really stand out :))

  9. The triangle quilt is looking good. Looks like you got lots done last week, even though you weren't able to check everything off.

  10. That purple mat is way too cut to be covered with fabric, love it. Can't wait to see Talking Turkey, that's been on my to do list since the first time I laid eyes on it, can't wait to see more.

  11. You're a busy girl! Keep up the good work!
