Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, March 24, 2014
This is what I'm working on--


Its been waiting to be quilted, its called Sunny Lanes and its from a Nickel Quilts book by Pat Speth.  A large quilt, about 115" square.  It was a "camper project".  I worked on it while camping several years ago.  The pieced backing is hanging on the wall behind it, I had spritzed it with water to relax the wrinkles and creases.  I learned that from Mary.  Unless things go awry I plan to finish the quilting this week.  Please see everyone's design walls at Patchwork Times.

Weekly Goals--last week's goals didn't do so well!  Although I did lots of sewing, none of it was on my list.  And then I decided to visit the grandchildren, better plan anyway.  

This week's goals--
  1. Finish quilting Sunny Lanes
  2. Trim Iowa guild group project HSTs
  3. Make a binding
  4. Finish sewing Summers at the Lake
That will keep me busy.  

A couple of pics from the weekend--

Even a picture of Grandma.  Letting little boys loose with something that has a button to push, well, you get lots of pictures.  The ceiling, floor, half a head, a hand, yup, lots of editing to be done.

I'm sure those boys love spending time with you more often now that they live closer. Cutie pies!

The quilt is really striking! The white sets off the colors perfectly. Can't wait to see what you do for quilting.

Great fun to explore through the eyes of a child!

I love the quilt. It will be finished before you know it.

wow a huge quilt, I can't imagine making one that big, think the biggest I have done was about 90 x 100.

What a giant quilt, and so scrappy, too, nice work! I'm loving that border fabric, too.
