Design Wall Monday, 7/5/10

Good day after the fourth! We did not do anything special, unless you count cleaning up the deck and making a new awning for the swing bench special! LOL! My schedule changed, so I worked last night. Don't get every Sunday and Monday off, but the trade off is getting more days off with my DSO!
Anyhoo! Here's some of my stuff in progress!
I have a pink flannel four patch on the design wall. Very simple little quilt, but I need to put it up there, otherwise I get things mixed up when I'm sewing it together! I can put one of these together in a few hours, but I've been doing other things too-of course! I made one in blue earlier in the week. These will go to Sallie House. They will be really cuddly for the kiddos.

I found the block lotto blog recently, and also the Liberated Quilter's group. Put those together and what do you get? Free piecing and a chance to exchange blocks! Well, I started making the Asterisks blocks and like them, so I kept making them. I have 16 of them made. Unfortunately, I did not read the instrutions right, and cut them 7.5 in instead of 8.5....sooo, I will make these for myself-I already cut the background squares! I will cut some others for exchanging. But aren't they fun!

I also have been doing a Bricks and Stepping Stones for leader/enders. I'm using dark blue and yellow for my stepping stones and dark and medium dark prints. These are mostly fat 1/4's that are a little unusual, I don't want to say ugly! The quilt will be fun and interesting at any rate!

Well, that's my Monday! Go visit Judy's site for more DMW!

God bless!

Mary, thanks for your comment on my blog. The BlueRidge Beauty is on Bonnie's under Leaders & Enders. I think it was one the publisher pulled the actual instructions for her upcoming book. I kind of winged the assembling of it. You can do it!!

Mary, your asterisk/fireworks blocks look great. For the lotto, if you wanted to, it would be OK to add background strips to two adjacent sides to make them big enough ... it's the liberated way, after all.

I really like the asterisk/fireworks blocks also. I hope to make some for the lotto this month.

Your blocks look like fireworks. Appropriate for the 4th of July.

Very pretty quilt...I am sorry it was cut a little wrong, but then that is a great thing too, you can keep it all for you!!
