Design Wall Monday - July 25, 2022

 Good Morning Quilters!

Well, this week was not very productive, and you will see with these two pictures.

The embroidery…….two little flowers are all that I did:

and the next picture is of the current Benjamin Biggs Wedding quilt block.  The leaves are appliquéd and four flowers prepped by back basting, ready for appliqué.

Some weeks are like that, right?  But, August is coming, and I’m optimistic about getting lots done in August.

I hope you have lots of progress to show us, but if you don’t, I surely understand.  Thanks for all of you who faithfully join in each week, in the Design Wall Monday Linky Party.

Design Wall Monday - July 18, 2022

Good Morning Quilters!

Remember last week when I listed three quilting goals?  Ta-Daaaaah!  I completed all three goals.

The May Day Baskets blocks are all sewn together into a top, awaiting the borders.  The small matching doll quilt is almost completely embroidered - only one more basket to go!

Here is a picture of both quilts together, hanging on the clothesline in the screen porch:

And a close up picture of the doll quilt showing just one more basket to embroider:

The Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt block I was working on got finished too.  And I finished another similar one.  Here are pictures of both of them.  Block #25

Block #11

Some weeks are like this - quilting projects move along smoothly.  So I am happy dancing that this week was a move along smoothly one.  How about you?

Your posts last week were great - you are making so many beautiful quilts.  I am looking forward to seeing your posts this week.  Thanks for joining in our Design Wall Mondays Linky Party.  Thanks to all of you who mention this blog in yours, and also provide a link back to this post.  You are appreciated!

Design Wall Monday - July 11, 2022

 Good Morning Quilters!

Well, life is flying by for me.  We had a wonderful week up at the cabin, and I did very little quilting.  This week I plan to settle down and get the following completed:

1) Sew the last 4 diagonal seams of the May Day Basket Quilt:

I do procrastinate when sewing long seams where pinning at block corners is required.  I am looking forward to working on the outer border on this one, so Judy is pushing Judy to get these seams sewn this week.

2) Finish another little embroidered basket on the May Day Basket Doll Quilt:

This was with me lately when traveling and I did get two baskets finished.  I am working on the middle right side basket.  Only three to go and I can move on to the border.  I want to test my border idea for the big quilt on this one first - to see if I like it.

3) Finish a block for my Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt:

There are 12 leaves left to appliqué, so it will be finished soon.  This block is actually in the bottom row of the pattern, and I am going to jump around a little bit while making blocks for this reproduction,   Two more blocks are similar to this one, and they will be next.

Speaking of jumping around, I just sent this poem to a mother of a six year old, and I will send it to you too, as it always makes me smile.  I am jumping around this week just as happily as Christopher Robin:

What are you working on?  Thanks to all of you who join each week with our Design Wall Mondays Linky Party.  I appreciate you!

Design Wall Monday - July 4, 2022

 Good Morning Quilters!  And Happy 4th of July to all Americans!

“Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”   Ferris Bueller  

Life has been moving pretty fast here lately.  Our cabin was on the market for only five days, and we had an offer - full price.  We are talking to our kids to see what furniture they want, and are preparing for the sale. We are at the cabin right now, and I thought you’d like to see some pictures of it, as I have no quilting progress to show you.  

Picture taken showing the lake view and the twodecks:

The porch toward the woods and road.

Cabin as viewed from the driveway, as we drive up through the woods.

So many great memories here, and more made this weekend as we watched the fireworks display from our dock.  We are filled with all the good times we’ve had here, and we know it will be loved by the new owner.

Join in our Design Wall Monday Linky Party below and we can see what is happening in your life.  Thank you so much for joining in the fun.  Hugs, Judy
