Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design Wall Monday Sept 5

Ah bliss........ this is the first of 11 days off. There is going to be blog surfing, and quilting, and sewing, and best of all, a trip to visit Noel and Laurie and Avery later this week, and time spent outdoors at the campground, cooking burgers over a fire, and marshmallows, and watching and listening to the waves on the shore. It is going to be soooo good.
On a quilty note, I think I have found my "go to" pattern for fast, easy but effective quilts. This Batman quilt was cut out Wednesday night. It has been sewn in the hours before work on the last 3 days. The blocks are all finished, and just need to be sewn together. I am going to use the leftovers from the top and the fat quarters packs to piece the back. And the back will probably take longer to make than the top did. I am sure that Noel is going to love it. It's a good thing I know that he doesn't read my blog. And now, I'm going to make myself another coffee, and surf some design walls over at Judy's Patchwork Times. And then, it will be sewing and quilting time. I want to see if I can't get a little bit more done on Shakespeare, and then get Batman all sewn together. Then the questing is, do I start on Batman's back, do I work on Roll roll cotton boll, or do I start something else new. Ah temptation, even though I had made myself a mental promise not to start anything new until I finished step 4 of RRCB. Hmmmmmmmm....... Oh, I know.... I'll work on stuff I already have going until we leave to go see the kids, and then work on new stuff when we get back. That sounds like a good deal. I wonder if I'll keep it. LOL.


  1. Love the Batman quilt! I'm so glad you've got eleven days ahead of you -- I know how hard you've worked over the past six weeks or so -- you NEED a break! Not to mention time to visit that precious grandbaby! Hugs!!! :)

  2. 11 Days! Lots of quilting and baby Avery! Perfect.

  3. Great idea! I know a few young men who would love a quilt like that!

  4. Is that a BQ? I love it and just broke down and bought the pattern after wanting it for a year.


  5. Well, now the Batman music is turned on in my brain! Any Batman fan will want this quilt.

    The BQ is a very fun pattern. I have in in with my fabrics for next year's hunting quilt. I saw it and thought it was the perfect design.

    Have a wonderful time with Little Mr. Avery. Don't forget to visit with the others. ;)

  6. Love the Batman quilt! Noel will too. :)
