Designing Monday on Tuesday

Seems I am in short supply on either time or energy right now.  I'm working on our church's photo directory.  I am coordinating all the volunteers, doing all the scheduling, and doing all the phone calling.  It is a lot of work.  Hopefully the end product will make it all worth it.

I have been making a little forest.  If you are a Bonnie Hunter fan, you will recognize her Crabapples quilt blocks.  There are whole lot of 1 1/2" squares in this quilt.  I am spending a lot of time doing rework as I am finding if I didn't sew perfectly or cut or press or trim perfectly, the blocks aren't coming out right.  So this is whole lot fussier than I had imagined it would be.  But I still love the overall look and I can't wait to see my little forest grow.

Here's the link to Judy's design wall.

Designing Monday

Mondays seem to come around so fast and this is one of those weeks when I could have used a few more days.  I did manage to get this table runner bound.  Yea!  This is Rhubarb Crisp, a design by Jo Morton.  I still have out my patriotic quilts, so this will be put away for a few weeks until its turn comes  round.

Here is my patriotic table runner.  I had so much fun making this one.  I used hexagons, but I sewed two strips of fabric together and fussy cut the hexagons to capture the flags or other designs.

I received this wonderful gift a few days ago from one of my favorite bloggers.  She is so generous with her ideas and tips and also with her jam.  Thank you again.

So have a fabulous week and hop on over to Judy's blog to see more fun designs.
