Design Wall Monday, Jan. 14, 2013

I'm a little late posting today, but that's because I actually sat down at my machine this evening and played. We had a whole pile of errands to run this morning and into the afternoon. But I promised myself that, when we got home, I'd have some play time. I have spent so much time in the last few weeks sorting and tossing and organizing, that I'm beginning to finally see the end of it. 
I can now see the floor underneath my machine. There are just a couple of small containers of fabric left to sort through and I am done. Pretty much everything that is not needed for doing machine quilting is now packed and out of the studio. I have kept back a couple of things to work on, though. I've kept my boxes of 2 1/2 inch strips, my boxes of 2 inch strips and my Grandmothers' choice project. One of the quilts that has been on my want-to-do list for a long time is a 36 patch. Today was the day to start it. I have 5 blocks done already, and fabric pairs chosen for quite a few more. The colours are not as grey as they look here, but the lighting is pretty bad at this time of night. I am really liking what I am seeing so far. I love how easy and how fast these go together.  I'm linking this post up to Judy's Patchwork Times.
Tomorrow, I can actually get back to doing some customer quilts again, now that I can actually get at the machine. It will feel good to get back at it. I might even have a sneak peak tomorrow.


  1. Great blocks...so nice to have something easy to work on. There is nothing like moving house to get you organized - and exhausted!

  2. I spent a couple hours this morning sorting and organizing. It wasn't planned but feel so much better! Have fun quilting. I really like your 36 patch. I may have to look into that one.

  3. I'm late posting everything ... sigh. I adore the look of the 36-patch blocks!! How big will you make it? Great color combinations you've got going there, too! :)

  4. I love the 36 patch blocks...so fun to sew and they make a great scrap quilt...ENJOY!


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.
