Designing Monday

My life slowed down a little bit this week so was able to get some sewing in.  I finished all the trees in my little forest.

Right now I am just enjoying looking at them on my design wall.  It always feels good to get a step completed on a long journey.  These will sit for a bit while I catch up on some other projects.  You know how that goes.

I have been wanting to make this little 12" quilt for quite some time.  It is one of the blocks from the 100 Blocks magazines from Quiltmaker Magazine.

I intended to have it done before the 4th of July...

or the middle of July...
or perhaps the end of July..

Now I am settling for the 4th of July next year.

Hop on over to Judy's blog to see some more great designs.


  1. Kris, your forest looks great! I love those blocks. I really, really like your Fourth of July block! It will be wonderful to have this new little treasure to pull out next July 4th!

  2. Your trees are such a fun scrappy mix. Your patriotic min-quilt is adorable. You'll also be able to display it for Memorial Day and Flag Day (June 14).

  3. Love your trees. That quilt is on my bucket list.

  4. I like the applique piece you made. Nice design.
