Design Wall Monday 6/25/2012

I decided to make yesterday a fun day. I wanted to do something totally different and take a break from Dear Jane and Sylvia's. Do I have tons to do still? Yes...but a break is sometimes needed.

I decided to make a quick Schnibbles so I picked out Plan C.  I originally cut the fabric from another charm square but ended up cutting and sewing wrong...figures.... So..I went with Plan B for my Plan C pattern.

I ended up using a Laura Ashley charm pack.  I love the fabric. My only complain was that it didn't have a lot of different fabrics. Each charm pack had 3-4 of the same fabrics.

I put the first 4 rows on my ironing board because I did not want to move everything around. It was really hot and I had 2 fans blowing at top speed.  This was the safest place. These rows are not sewn together. I was about beat and didn't feel like doing anymore.

I went to lay out the last two rows and for some odd reason I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get them laid out like the pattern.  I decided it was just too hot and I would work on it again this afternoon when I get home from work.

I will have to hurry and get this little top done and get back to DJ and Sylvia's but it was a nice break while it lasted. I would love to say I will have plenty of time to sew in the next couple of weeks but I don't think that will happen. We have family coming into town for the weekend. Hopefully by next week I will be back on track.

Of course it has been hotter than pee waddlin pickles this last week...in the 100's for Colorado is just not normal and when you don't have A/C it isn't great either. Then there is the fires on the other side of town and it is just so awful. Hopefully they will start to get containment on them today.

Well I am off to get ready for work so for more design walls head on over to Judy's.

Have a pieceful day.



  1. Your quilt is going to be beautiful.

  2. Very pretty colors in that charm pack. Your pieces will behave better when the temperature drops, maybe? :)

  3. Sounds like a fun break until the last two rows. Either way, the blocks look really nice in those fabrics. Hope you're able to sneak a little sewing time in.

  4. "Moral of the story...if you do something different in the past try and finish so in the present you won't be wondering what the heck you were thinking."

    Oh how this line made me laugh!!

  5. Pretty fabrics for those stars. Oh my 100 degrees and no air conditioning, I sure hope it doesn't last long. And the fires, my goodness, stay safe.
