Design floor Monday on Tuesday

I spent most of yesterday finishing cleaning out kitchen cupboards. We have a corner cupboard that we use for our pots and pans that has a lazy Susan thing in it. What a pain in the back, literally, that thing was to clean. I could only get under it in the small section where the circle of the lazy Susan has a notch in it. And I had to climb into the cupboard, under the upper rotating shelf in order to get to the back of the cupboard. Am I ever glad I will never have to do that again!
So, by the time all this was done, it was 6 pm. In the meantime, Scott had been cutting and installing baseboards in the 2 bedrooms that need them. Neither of us felt like cooking at that point, so it was off to our local Wendy's fast food place for supper. Then, at last, I could sit down and sew a bit. I am caught up on all my Grandmother's Choice squares, and have them all sashed and sewn together. Well, except for the umbrella one, which still needs hand stitching, and has currently gone missing in the mess around here. I'm sure it will turn up, eventually. I couldn't get a picture last night, though. No place with good enough lighting.
It is a lot of fun watching this one grow, and not knowing what will be added to it from week to week. I have already decided where it is going to live, and how it will be quilted.
It is going to be a sofa quilt. The reds in it will be perfect in the new apartment with the red chairs. I'm not going to add any borders to it, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to quilt it with Baptist fans. So far, it looks quite at home on my couch.
I'm linking up, a little late, but better than not at all, to Judy's Design wall Mondays at Patchwork Times. I'm also going to link up to Connie's Tuesday linky party at Freemotion by the River. I've followed her blog for quite some time now, but have never linked up to hers before now. There is lots of other fun stuff to see over there. I think, after all the work yesterday, this is about all I'm going to accomplish today..... blog surfing, and maybe some knitting.


  1. Lovely sampler quilt. The red is a nice companion with the brown. Looks quite cozy!

  2. I bet it has been fun making all the different blocks, and great you have a plan for it already.

  3. Beautiful sampler blocks and the colors look perfect for a quilt on your sofa! Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is going to be a stunning quilt - and it goes so well with your furniture! Can't wait to see it in person!

  5. I'm getting there -- I've gone nine done, now. If I keep up with the new ones and do an additional block a week, I'll get it! Yours look fabulous! It cracks me up how we're using the same line of fabric, but they still look so different! :)


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
