Design Wall Monday June 13

Bear Tracks grew some more this past week and is still on my design wall. All the main blocks are done, and are half sewn together. There is still a fair bit of work left to do on it, though, in order to get all the border units done. Unfortunately, it's going to have to wait. There are more walls to look at over at Judy's Patchwork Times
I have a few customer quilts that have to get finished up. I've been badly procrastinating on them, and the pressure of knowing they are there waiting is starting to bother me. I'm working 3-11 Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so there won't be a whole lot accomplished these days. But I'm off for 11 days after this, some of which will be spent visiting Noel and Laurie and Avery. We're going up on Friday, coming back Sunday, hopefully armed with lots of pics. It's hard to fathom that tomorrow it will be 4 weeks since he was born. The time is flying too fast.  And speaking of time flying so fast, yesterday was Matt and Becca's first wedding anniversary.  It seems like just yesterday I was trying to get all the bridesmaids' dresses done. Wow! They have had a good year, though, and are growing together as a couple in the Lord. Matt wrote this to Becca:

Well sweetie, it's official now. 1yr! You are sleeping right now, but as I look and see how comfy and how content you look. I am truly blessed to have you as my wife. I thank God for these moments. 1yr ago my life changed for the better! I love you very much and look forward to many more years of happiness with you!

What mother could hope for more for her daughter.


  1. I love your quilt. The chain blocks are perfect!

  2. WOW! I love this - great fabrics and a great design.

  3. Love your quilt. Enjoy the time off with the little one and the happy couple. The quilt will definitely be worth the wait.

  4. Beautiful quilt! Hope you get your procrastination gene tuned down so your stitching can climb into higher gear :)

    Lovely sentiment from a husband, indeed.

  5. Love how the bear paw has turned out. It is wonderful to see your daughter is so blessed.

  6. I know how you feel about customer quilts - I'm in the middle of a commission and I have to force myself to work on it - I hear my own work calling to me!!


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.
