The Start of Some Finishes

>> Monday, November 15, 2010

My Design Wall is full of ideas and pieces today. I really enjoy working on projects with different styles at the same time. I have never been good at working on only one project at a time!
Plus, I like to do the "leaders and enders" kind of sewing and with different types of projects going through the machine I'm less likely to mix up any pieces.

Sew, What's Up?

This time one is more muted tones and smaller piecing - the whirlygigs at the bottom measure 3 1/2" unfinished. The larger pinwheels above are supposed to be more whimsical in nature - they are 6 1/2" unfinished.

You can also see the beginning of a string block at the top - last week's string block! It's the first time all year I fell behind! I'm hoping to get to work on it today.

I'm still working away at my Season of Grace quilt. Here you can see the green I'm using for binding - wound around a wooden train whistle! It's what I could find when I finished pressing my binding on my big board downstairs in the playroom {so far no one's missing it!}
I did finish sewing all the loops onto the last of the stockings last night.
I might finish this quilt in time to put it in SewGalCal' s Christmas Quilt Show.

Check out the links at Judy's blog to see what's up on some other design walls.

With Joy,

p.s. I posted a free charm placemat pattern last week to celebrate 300 posts. You can find it here. Thanks for visiting!

I'm with you liking to work on several projects at the same time. I don't get bored, more things get done and I can change what I'm doing if I get stymied. And, for the really boring things I usually take them to my guild sew in so I can listen to people talking. On the other hand I also tend to listen to books on cd while prepping for the actually sewing, Sigh.

I like working on lots of different projects, too, but sometimes, I have so many projects in the works, I don't know what to work on that day, lol.

I am with you. I cannot work on one thing at a time. It confuses me LOL
Your projects are looking great.

One of my favorite things is peeking at design walls. I love that!

I really like leaders and enders too! It's almost like the blocks make themselves. Lots of inspiring stuff on your wall. Thanks for sharing.
