Design Wall Monday - August 29, 2022

Good Morning Quilters!

As I’ve said before, one of my life goals is to stay “whelmed”…….not underwhelmed and not overwhelmed.  Last week, I was feeling overwhelmed, and so I have no pictures of my design wall.   I did take a baby quilt to a baby shower, and here is a picture of the final binding progress on it (bound the day before the shower):

Instead, I have more pictures from the AQS Quilt Show held in Grand Rapids, MI recently.  These are just three of the many, many beautiful quilts that caught my eye.

And who thinks of doing a picture of a dog using only circles?  Notice the quilting is circles too!

I liked the bright cheerful colors of the fabrics here (I have none of this in my stash):

What are you showing us on your blog this week?  

I am sorry to report I did not reply to any of your kind comments last week.  I have flogged myself with a wet noodle, and have promised to do better at communicating with you this week.  Penny Lane will remind me.  

Please join in the Design Wall Monday Linky Party below, and I will visit your blog.  I thank you for participating and linking back here from within your post.   I appreciate all of you.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!


  1. I didn't make it to Grand Rapids for the show, I'm all about moving now! That dog was so interesting, made from circles, what a great idea! We all have weeks when we're not 'whelmed', hope you have a good week with whatever happens. See you in November!

  2. It's important to stay in the whelmed area, especially in quilting. It is supposed to be fun.

  3. it is always fun to see the shows and what people are making

  4. I think being whelmed is a great plan, no need for the noodle flogging tho.
    Have a great week and thank you for the linky party!!

  5. “Whelmed.” I like it! And what beauties from the quilt show. I don’t have anything to share this week. I understand.

  6. I like the idea of trying to just stay Whelmed!!
    Cute quilting on the Baby quilt!!!

  7. the show sounds great... thank you for sharing some of the fun with us. Penny is adorable. Maybe Milo wants one of those raised beds...

  8. Sometimes we just need to step back. I really like that idea to stay Whelmed. I was struggling with Under-whelmed most of last week.

    Thanks for sharing the quilt show photos. It's inspirational to others' techniques and creative ideas.

  9. Such lovely quilts from the quilt show and great inspiration. Sometimes we have those overwhelming days, just remember to take time for yourself, dear. I hope your week is a blessed and "whelmed" one. Hugs

  10. Wonderful eye candy on your post this week. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Hi Judy, I know how you feel. I'm also looking for equanimity in my life - not too much but enough stimulus to keep me going. Not an easy thing. Thanks for sharing your pictures from the quilt festival. Have a good week.

  12. Your baby quilt is lovely. Good on you to stay in control!


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. 😊
