Design Wall Monday - September 14, 2020

 Good Morning Quilters!  This week I didn’t get much done that I think would interest you, but I am reporting in anyway.   You notice that I try not to talk about bad weather, fires, politics, people behaving badly, etc.  I know it is all happening, but I would rather this blog be a little spot of happy quilt talk and friendship.  So a non-quilty thing I’m going to report this week is that Saturday, September 19th, is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

The only thing I worked on was this:  A tablecloth is being made out of a big piece of fabric a friend gave me because she knows I like blue and white.   I found this fabric in the stash when I was searching for something to use for binding on the Dee/Judy quilt recently.  As I finished binding that quilt, I thought the same binding would look great as an edge on the other big piece of fabric to make it a tablecloth.  So I am binding a tablecloth, and I am about half way done.  Do you like it?  I like that I’m getting this piece out of my stash and it will be a useful tablecloth at the cabin.

Let us see what you are usual I ask that you please ‘talk up’ Design Wall Mondays in your post and include a link back to this post.  Thank you.  I shall leave you with an evening sky and water picture taken last week at sunset.

  1. The fabric is perfect as binding for your table cloth. My mom often used fabric pieces as tablecloths and she normally didn't even take the time to bind them. I'm glad you have a 'happy' blog, that's why I follow you. Happy stitching!

  2. LOL -- talk like a pirate huh - hadn't heard that one before LOL - better than talking about anything going on in the US for sure!!

  3. Hi Judy... there doesn't seem to be a title that I can link this blog post to. Usually I can click on the title and then copy/paste that to make a direct link so I'm not sure how to do it today?

  4. I'm familiar with Talk Like a Pirate Day as it always falls near some birthdays this month!

    Love the binding idea for the tablecloth, but I would have run that sucker through the sewing machine to attach it :)

    Pretty photo! It is gray and yellowish, smoky skies here...

  5. I too like your table cloth... and like AnnieO it would be through the machine and on the table by now. I just barely do handwork much any more. Well, except the socks I am knitting as a Christmas present. Hopefully I will get a pair done by then! We have either a cloudy sky or haze from the west coast fires. The local weather people have said that haze is coming from there. Unfortunately it does make sense. Ahoy matey!


I am always searching for new ideas and your feedback helps me learn how to do things better. Thanks for stopping by! Note that I am not on the computer daily, so responses to your comments happen when they happen.....I'm 80, and I hope allowances can be made. 😊
