Here's what is really on my design wall. I had to shove around some of the little antique 9 patches to make enough room to get good photos of these two projects.
First, the Seattle Sea Hawk blocks for Irma, a member of the FCQ EQuilters. She asked us to make these as she plans to make a quilt for a friend who is a big Sea Hawks fan. I hope to get 10 made and sent by the end of February. I cut two more blocks last night.
This is the block for the next charity challenge quilt from fabrics given to me by the Maryland guild. Remember this quilt? I had saved more masculine fabrics to do another quilt. This is the pattern. I'm mixing in quite a few of my own fabrics to get a more masculine feel. The blue and the cream will be the same in all the blocks. What I'm just thinking -- could I actually cut the blue as a square? Probably not based on the way it is constructed. Oh well. Now to just find time (and room) to cut out the fabrics. Here's why I say this:
The disaster of the cutting table. The box has been emptied and some contents thrown away or recycled. Maybe if I actually cut out the above quilt I would have less scattered across this table. You can see some lime green for the Sea Hawks blocks too.
Perhaps I should include cleaning off the cutting table in the goals for the week!

Just as a side note check out this post of Sarah's from Confessions of a Fabric Addict. She's showing a different 9 patch quilt every Sunday for 6 weeks as part of her Nifty Nines Quilt Along. I love this one and need to figure out when I can make it. I have a lot of 2.5" squares already cut -- all I would have to do is cut a background fabric. It is a great way to use up all those squares I keep cutting.
That's it from me. I'm linking up with Monday Makings at Love Laugh Quilt and Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts.
