Falling Back Into Routine - Design Wall Monday

>> Monday, August 29, 2011

Summer is rapidly winding down here. My husband is back to school today!
As the fall schedules fill up, I find myself taking stock of all the UFOs waiting for me.
Design Wall Monday hosted by Judy at Patchwork Times is a great way to keep on track. Nothing like going back through old posts to see all those UFOs!

This past week I went back to finish up the final two blocks of the Layer Cake Quilt Along hosted by Konda at Moose on the Porch Quilts.
I want to at least get my Christmas version of this quilt assembled this year. I bought an extra jelly roll of the Prayer Flag fabric that I plan to use to make my other quilt a bit bigger. I'm thinking a piano key border. . .

This is the last block I had finished. Way back here.

Block 11 by Vanessa Wilson, The Crafty Gemini. This block is straight, it's just hanging on my design wall over top the window beneath so things float on this spot. Can you see my unplanned mistake? I'm leaving it!

This is block 12 by Joan Lucchese, the Cali Quilter.

I played with colour placement and my stripes in the Christmas version.

Also up on the design wall is my Follow Your Bliss makealong project. It's slow going right now. Hopefully I will get a chunk of time soon so I can work out the next part.

I've got big plans for this fall too. I really want to finish up my UFOs so NEXT year I can focus on quilting them. I have a couple I'd like done for Christmas and then I can work at getting some more done next year. Of course, I'm still designing new things and finding new things I want to make all the time!

Design Wall Mondays are great inspiration - to finish up and/or to start something new! Be sure to check out the great projects through the links at Judy's blog. Check out Judy's wall too:)

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

I just finished the center of my LCQAL: borders to be put on next week. I also couldn't see the mistake so it must not be too noticable, except to you.
