Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, June 25, 2012
My design wall still has the Trip Around the World pieces on it so I used the bed.

4 Patch Diamonds
All the bits of the 4 Patch Diamond are sewn together except for the corner triangles.   I'm not sure why but the top is extra long--it measures 85 x 110".   Maybe I planned a pillow tuck! 

Weekly Goals--

  1. Finish binding the Blue Urban Cabin
  2. Sew more of the Birds In Air blocks together

I'll be volunteering this week and hand sewing binding in the evenings is perfect.  Me, a lawn chair, and some cold refreshment. 

Thank you everyone who commented on my Dad's passing.  I'm really missing him.

Lori, so sorry about your dad. My dad passed away 13 years ago, and I still miss him. Love the diamond quilt -- it makes a striking bed cover.

I am REALLY impressed by this. I even thought about making one for myself for a few brief moments, until I came to my senses. Phew!

I think this one is one of your best, a 'hair loom'

The quilt on the bed looks so good, it made me want to make one, too. My wannado list is so long, I'd need an extra hundred years and Bill Gates' bank account to finish it!

Lovely quilt. I like quilts that can be tucked under the pillows, so why don't I ever make mine that way?

I am terrified of making any block that includes diamonds. Your top is gorgeous. Sorry about your dad. Take care....

Love the scrappy look of your quilt. All the different colors are just perfect for the pattern you used.

Hi Lori,

Sorry to hear about your father's passing, I will keep you in my thoughts. And I love the book this quilt came from, and I like your quilt too!

Sorry about your dad, Lori. Mine passed 5 years ago and I still miss him. We probably will always miss them.

Wonderful quilt!
