We get an extra Design Wall Monday this year! But I have nothing on the design wall as its down for a few days (maybe more than a few) while I paint the long arm room. The jewel tones are going and making way for Vintage Linen. I'll miss my color, but will be a refreshing change. I may have to compensate in quilts that are oozing with color to make up for the lack of on the walls. Sure will be glad when it's done. But I have a design table which has a few things on it. First up the next two blocks for Splendid Sampler. I really am liking this mystery sampler. I've been able to keep up and hey, we're 5% done! I'm making blocks that I know I never would have done if I weren't participating and finding that I really do like them. It's the adventure and going down paths that you might not have traveled otherwise. Anyone doing the Splendid Sampler? Here's blocks 4 and 5. Block four I used the flower centers on the Accuquilt Round Flower Die, they were the perfect size and for fusible, cut perfectly!
Look who came to visit this weekend. He insisted he was a Dr in this picture. I told him he really looked more like a quilter! He loves fabrics, I really think he's my best chance at having a quilting buddy so far. One thing we did agree on is who's car seat cover was on the table. We both agreed that one should go to Louis. This is from a pattern Daugther #2 picked up at Joanne's. Like the strategically placed strip of coordinating fabric? That's what ya do when don't have enough of one fabric, add more to it.
Calvin gets this one. I've had those fabrics waiting for a couple of years for the right project. Just barely had enough to finish these to. Great to be able to complete projects with what you have on hand.
Hope you have a great week with some quilty fun. Check out the linky parties on the side bar, lots of fun all around.
