Design Wall Monday, July 6, 2020

What a beautiful Fourth of July - I had a fantastic weekend, and I hope you did too.  Weather was great, a full moon over the campfire, just perfect.  Company is all gone home, and today is laundry day.  Mostly sheet sets and towels, and I dry the sheets outside on a clothesline.  Do any of you do that anymore?  I have good memories of my Mom whenever I am pinning the sheets to the clothesline. Here is a picture of her clothespin bag, which I now use:

She bought it at a bazaar, and it is so cute.  It is sturdy denim, and the circle hole with the red lining is where the clothespins are.  Here’s a closeup of the clothes on the line.  The little clothespins are machine stitched.

This week, I am concentrating on getting two chimney sweep block (also called album block) quilts closer to the finish line.  The Churn Dashers, the civil war repro group of which I’m a member, is getting details together for our group display in the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show scheduled for February 25-28, 2021.  My three quilts have to be finished (at least to a completed top stage) so I can turn in my info sheets for them, with the dimensions by August 1st.  One is a top now, the second is just blocks right now, and the third is in pieces, not yet into blocks.   I took a picture of one of the group of blocks last year, but I have changed my mind on the alternate pink squares idea.  

I am now using white sashing with pink cornerstones, and more pink fabric at the edges.  Picture next week.  What are you doing this first week of July?

Please link up and show us a picture, so we can go to your blog to read about it.       Thanks to all of you who provide a word or two about Design Wall Mondays on your blog, and also put a link in there to this post.
