Oh I missed the last one!

I missed the last Design Wall Monday post of the year by a day and a half. I have been working on all those bazillion pieces to the RRCB quilt on Bonnie Hunter's site. I'm all caught up with getting them to the point they need to be for the Friday step 7 post. I am dying to find out how to put these together!
Between working on RRBC, I also am doing the Christmas Lights Bonnie Hunter pattern. I started by using it as a leader/ender project, but now I have alot of the parts done to start putting together. Hopefully I'll have something on my wall by next Monday!
God's Blessings in the coming New Year!

Design Wall Monday-12/13/10

Good Morning!
This has been a busy week with various projects needing time spent on each one. I have four quilts in progress that are either series quilts, or BOM's, or the RRCB mystery! I never have a lack of things to work on, just have to make a decision on what to work on! LOL!
Here's the latest block on the Carol Doak BOM-Simply Radiant:

Here's the latest on Meet me at the Manor-the Quiltmaker series I'm doing.I think this is the last of the block instructions, next magazine it will be putting it all together! I'm glad, because McCall's Quilting mag came out with a new series! I want to finish this one before starting a new one! Is there a pattern here? I really like doing quilts this way, and it goes with my style of quilts with alot of fabrics and a variety of blocks. That is really the kind of quilts I love to do!

I just finished 70 of those little pinwheel blocks-they are one of the borders. Then I have 4 more other kinds of blocks to do, but not that many of each. I think the most is 8.

When I'm not quilting, I have been working on these cotton dishcloths. I'm going to give them as gifts this Christmas. I'm not sure who will get them, but I love making them! They are so easy! I'm thinking they would make great face cloths too.

I don't think I ever showed a photo of the little Sunbonnet quilt we found at one of the many antiquing places we went to on our vacation last Sept. It is probably circ. 1970's or so. The quilting is not the greatest, but it still is cute! We try to add at least a small quilt to our antique collection each year.

I also am up to date on the RRCB mystery quilt. This ine is really a great mystery, as the sections we have made so far are so different! Bonnie is good...she can sure make a great mystery! I anticipate every Friday because the next clue comes out!

Design Wall Monday, 12/6/10

How is everyone this lovely cold day? I came home from work today not feeling real well, so I think I'm going to call off tonight! Sometimes one needs a break! I think it is winter blahs...but winter is just starting!

Quilting always does cheer me up, even if I don't have much time during my work week. I did finish my Asterisks quilt...the one above on my blog header. I listed it on etsy a couple days ago. Here's a photo (above) of the finished quilt. It was a lovely sunny day (but cold), so I took a few shots outside!

All the sewing I have gotten done this past week has been on the RRCB Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. This quilt is going to be interesting! I have no idea where it is going, but I'm having fun! That is part of the fun of mystery quilts...the anticipation of the next clue, and guessing what is going to go with what! This week we are making "neutral" string blocks. Well, as you can see, they are not what is commonly thought of as neutrals! Bonnie's intructions said go wild! Use up anything that has more background than print. It is fun!

Hope your all doing well and God Bless!
