Monday Goals and Design Wall

Monday, July 6, 2009
I was able to sew this weekend, and I put up my current project on the wall. Alycia's #2 project, I really like it.



This project required a bit of frog stitching because I wasn't THINKING, but it is really very easy. I think the blue setting triangles with a narrow red border or maybe just a very narrow red border with another wider blue border?? I'll play with it when I get that far! It's a great way to play with your noodles!

Goals--ah, I do have some plans for this week. I am sewing with some of the Nebraska Heartstrings Group on July 14th, so I will be readying what I need to take to that. First we are going to visit Ashfall Fossil Beds, I've always wanted to see them, then out to lunch, and sewing all afternoon. What could be a more perfect day! If there are any Nebraska people out there who are interested, email me! Quiltin' Library Lady is organizing all this, I can hardly wait!

  1. Get ready for Nebraska Heartstrings Sewing Day!

Yes, just one goal, it's enough for summer. I will sew in between on other projects if I have the time or energy!

Hey Lady... if you could bottle the ability to go back in time and use a full day for fun, shopping and sewing - well you could be a quadrillionaire!

The quilt is lovely - can't wait to see how you finish it off...

Your quilt top is looking good! Another finish soon :)

Have fun with the Heartstring-ers!

Nice job on the blocks. I think you are right about the borders.

I hope you mean the Heart Strings gathering is July 14th. If not, you missed it. :o)

Good project on the wall!! I love that type of quilt - I just do!!
Have a great time on the 14th!! If I was near you, I would try to come to! but I think it would be a fairly long drive, so I will use that day to get my BOM instead!! till next time......

Very striking quilt. And I just love it when you set lofty goals. My husband tells me it's working up to getting very hot.....maybe we should see if Rick or Sandy will open Ashfall for us at about 6am. LOL

That's going to be a beautiful quilt!

It's summer--too hot to sit under big quilts anyway!

Love it! I like the idea of Blue - but you can't go shopping and blame me ;-) I get blamed for too much already as it is LOL
