Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Monday, June 8, 2015
This week I worked on the rest of the pink Disappearing Pinwheel blocks--

The lighting isn't the best inside but outside it was drizzling.  These blocks used some of my 30's stash.   20 blocks--I think they need sashing but I'm not sure if I have any more of the pink.  Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.

Weekly Goals--

R/W/B Album block
Monkey Wrench and 9 Patch blocks
Album Blocks

Small goals for this week.  I am volunteering and a short stint of grandma duty (Yippee) and a workshop sponsored by my guild with Vi Colombe.  She is known for her star quilts, but I have no idea what the workshop will be.  (I was unable to attend the meetings where it was discussed).  

Packing the camper was done in a rush this year.  I forgot mixing bowls (I used a saucepan), shorts, and LOTS of other things.  Lucky for me I am so close to home and can get them another trip.  

I did pack some fabric.  An assortment of FQs that have lived way too long on a shelf in a basket.

An widely assorted group!  The left side has primitive red/blue/tans to go in my R/W/B album and Monkey wrench blocks.  Lots of browns along the bottom, several purples, some blues and greens.  From them I pulled these FQs to play with--

Red with the stars, blue with the red leaves, bees with aqua dots, tiny flowers with green vines.  I'm planning the outside of Monkey Wrench blocks and album blocks using these.

Its a beautiful morning, I snapped this pic as I walked to the Visitor Center--

Have a great week!!

What a gorgeous view you have - very inspirational to work in that environment. I can see why you enjoy it so much. About 5 years ago I was there to watch my oldest compete in a triathlon there. And we have friends who live just down the river from the park but haven't visited them there for a couple of years. This picture makes me want to come visit.

Love all the fun prints on the fabric.

I remember that view, and it is stunning.

Those pink disappearing pinwheels are the bomb! But it was even more fun to visit your stash to see the array of "well-aged" fat quarters. Nice group there!!! The view is spectacular, no wonder you go every year!
