Design Wall Monday



Not  a lot going on in the sewing room this weekend.  Little Smiles stopped by on Saturday for the day.  So I spent the whole day just watching him while he slept.  He didn't seem to mind and well, there's only so much that you can do at 15 days :)  I did get some practice runs done before he arrived.  I'm trying to see what will work and what won't for Steve and Lindsey's wedding quilt.  I think I found things I liked and things that just weren't gonna work.   And really what else can you use mint green fabric with dog bones on it for other than practice. 

I did get quite a bit of marking done on the quilt.  The outer border and the largest of the squares is done, the second largest 1/2 done and I couldn't take any more, I had to sew!!  I tried to get a couple more swoon blocks done, but that didn't happen either.  But look at the bonus triangles I get from the swoon blocks, 8 of each.  I get 32 bonus HSTs from each block and I'm hopefully making 16 blocks, we'll see how I feel once I get to 9.  But if I do all 16, that's 512 HSTs.  I really hope there are enough scraps to do the chunky pinwheels, but we'll see. 

Don't forget to stop by Judy's to see what everyone else is doing.
