Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, September 12, 2016
This week I have a finish--

Its based on the Pattern "All in a Row" by Kim Diehl.  78"x94" and 13 yards used. Red/white/blue and I'm giving it as a QOV to a Vietnam Vet.  

Saturday my Mailbox was very happy!  There was a package from New Hampshire in it--  

filled with 31 FQs from Vic!  Thank you Vic!  These will become a "boys" quilt--I have a pattern picked.  Vic looked through her amazing stash for FQs that would fit--nothing too girly.  It will be easy to make a top with them.  I will add a little more green and brown and neutral.  Yup, those FQs won't last long!  The smelly was sachets Vic makes.  They smell so good!  Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.

Saturday morning there was a hummingbird on my feeder when I got up.  He must have gotten chilled, he sat there motionless, even when I walked past him.  I stopped for a photo--

He was gone when I checked later, he must have warmed up.  He better think about heading south, its going to get COLD here. 

Weekly Goals--

Arrowhead blocks
Borders on two tops
Bricks & Stepping Stones
Double 4 Patch
DSS top
Lime Green Dinosaur borders

Its a busy week.  I'm not sure if I will get to sew with the Hawarden Sweat Shop ladies this weekend.  And its another busy volunteer schedule this week.  

Summer is winding down, kids are in school.  The soybeans are turning color and soon it will be harvest.

The quilt is great -- I clipped that pattern years ago and it keeps coming to the top of the pile. Hmmm.... And what a lovely gift from Vic!

Love the finished Churn Dash, and it's a perfect QOV.

Chilly here today, barely made it to 42 degrees. Sweater and jacket weather, for sure!
