Design Wall Monday-June 21st

Walter says Good Morning to all!
He and Boxer were pretty frisky this am. They were happy that I got up earlier than usual. I have to work tonight, so it sometimes happens that I feel like getting up early and seizing the day!

Here is the quilt top I decided to work on after finishing my YTRR quilt top. I just love my scraps I have all cut up! This quilt top is going to deplete my 2.5 squares and 2.5x4.5 bricks. I even got into my stash and cut up a couple of light fabrics that I had used before! That qualifies as a scrap doesn't it!

My Red Stars quilt has four blocks made now. I didn't touch the Q4K quilt, so it still is sitting there! I organized my finished quilts so most of them are hung up in the quilting room closet, instead of sitting in a pile. Most of them are in my etsy shop, so I wanted them to be more accessable. I got about half the binding stitched down on one of the quilts I quilted last week. I had a good productive weekend for the most part!
This week, I am working Monday night through Friday night. My schedule got changed a little this week. Usually I have Monday night off. Looks to be a long week, but next week, my weekend off is changing! I finally got them to change me back to the weekend off I had last March before all the changes started. Shara and I will have the same weekend off together again! And I am going to have FIVE in a row off!!! I am excited about that, altough I will have to work 6 nights in a row to get it. I learned a long time ago that you have to give a little to get a little!
Hope everyone's week goes well! And Happy Monday!!!

God Bless

Very pretty and a great stashbusting idea! Hope you adjust to the new work schedule will. I don't always cope with those types of changes well and night/evening shifts are not easy for me to do anymore. Have a great week!
