Designing Monday

Lots of sewing time this week.  Yay!  I finished off my little flag quilt from last week and it is hanging on the wall.

I joined in the fun with the Sentimental Quilter and made a spool quilt.  The blocks finish at 3", so this is just my style.  Quick and easy.  I must have been a little too quick since I got my blocks turned around somehow.

Here they are all straightened out and sewn together.  This week I'll figure out how to finish it.  Such a little cutie.

I had two reject blocks.  The one on the left just didn't get along well with the others, so I put it in the scrap pile.  The other one is just a hot mess.  Those checks just went all wocka wocka, so out it went.

We went to the rodeo this week at the county fair - an annual tradition for us.  This year, someone had a drone and was flying it over the crowd on the far side of the arena and over the chutes.  This is the second time this summer we have been in a public space and someone has flown one over the crowd. It is fun to see, but also kind of creepy knowing there are cameras watching overhead.  Have you had this experience?  What did you think?

Of course, my husband wants one.

Hop over to Judy's blog  to see more beautiful designs.


  1. The flag quilt turned out delightful, and I love the little spools!
    Haven't seen a drone flying over me yet and don't want to. I think they should be confined to private property unless people have had a warning that they will be used (for a valid reason, not just for fun) and have the option not to be there.

  2. Yay! for finishing your flag quilt. It is adorable!! And your spools are too cute. They are fun blocks to make.

  3. Beautiful quilts--the flag quilt is adorable and so creative.

  4. I like the flag quilt very much.
