Design Wall Monday–July 16, 2012

Just a few more blocks completed.  One block has some of the sashing attached  on two sides, just to give an idea of what that will look like.

The background fabric blends into the design wall, so I took another shot against a darker background.

There are a few blocks just started, or with some pieces added on, but generally not much progress. Certainly not as much as I would have liked. 

Excuse of the week:  My doctor says that I have some unpronounceable  thing which translates into…….get ready for it….tennis elbow.  As anyone who knows me can tell you, using my name and tennis elbow in the same sentence is funny, not just very funny, but laugh- so- hard –you –cry –and –otherwise-dampen-yourself funny!

Actually, as with so many of these things, it is a repetitive motion problem, quite uncomfortable, and flairs up each time I think I well enough to do more handwork. DRAT!  So, I have been trying to rest it and follow the other instructions I was given. Not at all happy about losing my momentum with this project.

Head on over to Patchwork Times and get inspired by what many talented quilters are doing.

Design Wall Monday–July 2, 2012

More progress on Patchwork of the Crosses. The first three are finished blocks.

These  need one more set of hexagons.

And these final ones need two more sets of hexagons.

I have more starter crosses, but haven’t chosen what the next hexes to continue working on them, haven’t found just the right colors to work with them yet.  Still enjoying the dickens out of this project, but starting to feel guilty about not getting started on my next machine pieced project, after all, one should quilt 70% of one’s non-sleeping hours, correct??

Go on over to Patchwork Times and get inspired by what many talented quilters are doing. While you are there, wish Judy a speedy recovery, she has suffered multiple spider bites (both Brown Recluse and Black Widow) additionally, she may have fractured the foot with the Black Widow bites……probably from stamping on the darn spiders! Nothing slows this gal down, but it may shift her focus for the next week or so.
