Design Wall Monday~November 14

Another Design Wall Monday!

I still have this scrappy quilt going on. This is all the blocks I’m going to make but I will spend more time moving them around. I’ve already “played” (I don’t consider it “playing”, I think it’s work) with them and taken six pictures and rearranged. I see at least three more moves and pictures. After that, it is what it is. I love other quilters scrappy quilts, I’m just never as thrilled with my own. I think I do planned scrappy okay but this taking anything and everything out of my 2 ½” strip box just doesn’t do it for me. I figure this quilt will be great for the picnic table.

And here are some blocks from the Heat Lightning Swap.

 If you’ve never done a swap you might consider this one. Quick blocks in colors of burgundy, pink, red, purple. Visit the group at Flickr: If you would like to join, there is still plenty of time. Or if you just want to see how the block is built and arranged see it here:

Design Wall Monday~November 7

Not much to say today…yet! I wasn’t here last week as we were spending six days at our funky trailer “Lucy”. She is on a small lot in Ocean Park WA. We just bought her a month ago. We already own 4 other lots on which we’ve kept our OLD fifth wheel. (Not as old as Lucy tho'!) After using that for vacation for over six years, Lucy seems pretty spacious. Yes, she needs a lot of work. A fun summer project.  Heeeeere’s Lucy!

Anyway, my design wall has two things going. A swap from the Flickr group “Teal We Meet Again”

Those are the plus or cross blocks. (I like to call them the “T” blocks as my name begins with a “T”) and the Scrappy Trips Around the World. This block happens to be the one Block Lotto is doing this month

I’m not doing it as part of Block Lotto, I’m doing it on my own. This is how many blocks I have done, not the final arrangement. I’m going to treat it as a block a day and have that be my goal. It's going to be a picnic quilt. I have to say that on the wall I’ve been kinda’ “meh” about it but I like it in the picture.

Oh! “Teal We Meet Again” has a new swap going. The new one is: This just started and there is plenty of time if you would like to join us.

Be sure to visit Judys site for other exciting design walls!

I hope you enjoy the links I’ve included.


p.s. Can you say Anniversary? 32 years. My card was waiting by the computer this morning. He knows what I do first thing in the morning!
