Designing Monday

Lots of little things are happening here.  What it is ain't exactly clear.  Or whatever the words are to that song.  Now that song is stuck in my head and it won't come out.

I have been making lots of individual blocks that aren't adding up to much, but I am having fun.  I have finished 4 of the Scrap Basket blocks from Lisa Bonjean's blog.  Here are #2 and #3.  I finished #4 last night, but haven't taken a photo yet.

I finished this practice block from Erin Russek, which was part of a quilt along for fall.  I did pretty well on the little round berries.

I also finished the top for the Humble Quilts doll quilt.  Also fun.

My husband is gone to Florida for a few days with the guys, so I have lots of sewing time.  I found a video of season 1 of Downton Abbey at the library, so I had a movie marathon this weekend.  Are you hooked on that show like I am?  I love, love, love it.  Maggie Smith is so darn funny.

Hop on over to see Judy  and all the beautiful designs taking place in the world of quilts.


  1. LOVE those Scrap Basket blocks. Since Lisa has posted 12 of them so far, I had decided to use them as my BOM this year, but at the class I took from her this month she hinted that she may be posting a few more soon. I might have to make more than one a month.
    Your Abundance doll quilt is very sweet.
    Applique always intimidates me, but your practice block looks great--nice round berries! : )

  2. Your scrap blocks are so darn cute... I think it's a good idea to do one a month as Janet is going to do... might steal that idea from her! Love the softness of your Abundance doll quilt. And yes, I'm hooked on Downton Abbey as well. Maggie Smith steals every scene she's in!
