Building Blocks

>> Monday, May 31, 2010

Busy Design Wall this week! As I am at the end of the month, and almost finished everything on my Spring to Finish list, I have some small projects as rewards. Follow the numbers to read about what's up on my wall:

1. A Maverick Churn Dash block - not intentionally a maverick block, BUT, since I trimmed it, photographed it and walked away before noticing the 'oops', it's been decided in this household that it is staying a maverick block. It's for Ariane and the June Sew Modern Bee Block. {It's not finished yet, I know, Ariane! I've just finally accepted it's maverick status!:)}

2. Leftover cuts from the churn dash which will turn into a signature block for Ariane.

3./6./10. Will be revealed in JUNE as they belong to a JUNE project.

4./8. Selvages ready to become coasters.

5. A test block for Ariane in some Christmas fabric. That's twice now that my test block is not the one I choose to use. This time because I don't think the block accentuates Ariane's fabric choices as well as the churn dash.

7. Some leftover strips from Marianne's block in May and little snips I was sent with a fabric bundle from Fabritopia. This will probably end up as a potholder.

9. If you click the photo larger you may be able to read the stitching. My daughter made the stitching for my birthday and just recently finished it. I found it folded on my table with the fabric that now borders it. I thought they looked happy together. I plan to do a quick batting and background and leave the binding open. A little something sweet to hang in my sewing space.

11. Part of one of the May Block Lotto blocks I made. Waiting not so patiently to see if I'm one of the winners!

While my Design Wall is full of fun stuff, I do have some binding to finish making and get in the mail before I can really play any further. And photos to add to my placemat pattern which I finished writing last night.

Turns out I thrive with a rewards system in place!

You seem to have a lot going on. Having them all out in the open like that is a nice way to keep track and avoiding losing track.

Wow girl...that's a lot to juggle!
How do you get the words on your photos?

First visit: LOVE, LOVE the placemat in your header. I also like your wall which shows that you, like me, work on many projects at the same time.
