design wall Monday Sept 30

This top has the pink borders added and is ready for the floral. Its for my niece's baby girl with requested colors of baby pink, gray and white. The background in the nine patches is not a true white, but it has lovely confetti in pastels. Not sure what I will quilt yet..but binding will be the same floral...maybe a pink insert.

My hermit-hood continues...with short forays into polite society!

Anyone in the Phoenix area on the look out for a Featherweight? This one is being sold for $225. Looks like its in pretty good condition. I would bite...but I have my limit!

If you are interested, email me and I can give you the phone number of the seller.

I"m still here!

Its official! I'm a HERMIT! I think its going to be awhile before my batteries are recharged. I have had a roller coaster of a year. All I want to do is stay home...clean house (can you believe THAT??? HEY! Its residual from the wedding...hehehehe),quilt, sew , quilt...maybe cook (I'm REALLY tired of THAT..but menu planning helps TREMENDOUSLY!)..did I say QUILT? I have a bunch to get accomplished..and I"m ready to DIVE IN...

Added to the mix is the fact that we have had horrendous cell coverage. My DH called his best friend to hash over college football the other day and I think he had his call dropped about 10 times! I did some research and found that our carrier had the same type of complaints when they were replacing cell towers elsewhere. I hope its shortlived! I will post pictures when I can...just be assured, I'm here...resting (Nap QUEEN!) and enjoying her sewing/quilting rooms.

Here is a picture of what is on one of my design walls. I just started putting it up yesterday and am still pondering how I want the blocks to look. Its right next to my computer, so I can peruse all I want!
The colors look greyed/muted, but they are leftover strips from a blueberry quilt I have on the 'to be quilted' pile. I will give you close ups as I finish the layout. The pattern is called Summer in the Park. Its a free pattern at Missouri Star Quilt Company. I really like it and will use it again. Esp with leftover 2 1/2 strips.
