Design Wall Monday - April 9, 2018

This week wasn't very productive - I trimmed some small hsts that someone gave me, and tried to arrange them into a doll quilt.  This is what I started out with:



But it didn't speak to me, so I looked for another alternate square.  The white with polka-dots seemed too similar to the pinwheel blocks.  I auditioned another fabric and liked it better:



I made the doll quilt, and it measures 20 inches by 18 inches, with the pinwheel blocks at 1.5 inches square....meaning the hsts are 3/4" by 3/4" square.  No wonder my friend gave them away to me......I must learn to say no.

Here is the finished top with mitered corners.  I shall bind it with the same plaid.




So, while I wasn't very productive in the quilting department, I scored some points with hubby Sunday when I made a turkey pot pie, and an apple pie.





What have you been doing?  I hope to hear from a lot of you today, as I will be sitting at the hospital with my sister all morning while she has surgery, and I will need the distraction.  (minor surgery, so not too stressful)
