Design Wall Monday!

 Here is my design wall this Monday morning!  I have several projects up there, some I am working on and some I am trying to decide what I want to do with the blocks.  So here we go...
First up are my Grandmother's Choice blocks!  The one on the right is the block for this week.  I'm not much for Y-seam blocks but hey, it was only one block!  

I've added 3 more basket blocks to my pile.  I now have 50 of them made, now only 241 more to go....  :(
As I mentioned in my last post, here are 102 of my bow ties!  Now, I just need to cut out more of them and have them ready for my leaders and enders.  I need to use them as my leader and enders and  NOT sew them all up at once, like I did here.  
 And lastly, my scrappy diamonds, you can read about those here.  I still have them up on the wall and I do believe that this is the setting that I will use for them.  This is not one that I plan on completing this second, but sometime this winter.  Looks like a good project when I am snowed in...
 I'm not sure how much sewing that I will get in today.  I have lots to do and lots of house cleaning.  UGH!

For other design walls, check out Judy's blog.  

Oh before I forget, if anyone else is interested in making and donating pillowcases "For Jamie's Sake" please let me know.  You can read more about it here.  

Why are kids so snappy when you are trying to get them to get ready for school?  Shewww....Hunter was hateful this morning!  That makes for a long morning when I have to get on to him.  I hate doing that but man he was a bugger this morning.  :(  As I am typing this he is getting on the school bus, I sure hope his teacher fairs better than I did this morning.  :)  

I'm off to get my day started!  Everyone is gone and now I have lots of stuff to get done.

I want to make one of those diamond string quilts too. I'm hoping it would be a good way to get rid of some really ugly stuff I have PILES of!

I avoid Y-seams, too. I try to tell myself that they aren't THAT hard, but I haven't liked it when I have made them, so I haven't made one in a long time!
Your design wall is very inspiring. I love those bow-ties. So cute and I love them in your fabric choices. It sounds like it is the project that wants to take over and you need to find something to do as leader/enders while you make that quilt. : )

I keep getting pulled in so many directions. Your string blocks reminded me of my string quilt that is a top I really want to get quilted...but ... so many things to do.This week it is charity quilts.

So many fun projects going on. It is fun to see so many people working on the same projects, yet they all look so different with different fabrics and settings. Yours all definitely look like they belong together.

I like so many of the projects you have on the go. The bow ties are cute, I just started the spools as leaders and enders.

I love those leader ender blocks. I can see why you just keep sewing them and not saving. Everything on your design wall is great!

Regina said...

love your bow ties. I am working on a bunch - my goal is 365 for my boss' retirement quilt - still about 3 years off.

I would like to donate some pillowcases for you. I commented on the original post but it isn't there now. Not sure why. You can email me at sharonjudkins@yahoo.com. I have some already cut and ready to sew. Just let me know where to send them!
