Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design Wall Monday, May 20, 2013

I have the results on my design wall of working on some of my getting it done goals. First off are some of the border units arranged around Cactus Rose. Eight done, 28 left to go. I haven't decided if I will sew the curved seams as I go, or wait until they are all done, and then have a marathon curved piecing session. Then comes the decision on how to quilt it.

And I managed to get 2 more of the Grandmother's Choice hand pieced blocks finished. The umbrella, and the 7 pointed star down at the bottom left. The umbrella is, unfortunately, upside down, but I'm not taking it out. I'm still behind on this one, but it's coming. Out of 49 blocks, I have 28 done. I really like the way this is looking. Seeing it here just might give me the motivation to get caught up. Maybe if I do 2 blocks a week. That shouldn't be too hard, says she who is having trouble even getting one a week done these days. LOL!
I'm linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday. Lots of fun eye candy over there today.


  1. I love seeing all of the fabric choices for the Grandmother's Choice. Smart lady to add the sashings as you go. YES, Lots of Blogs to hop today.

  2. Love the Cactus Rose pattern...the border sure adds another nice layer.

  3. Your Cactus Rose is gorgeous! Love all the Grandmother's Choice blocks. I think the umbrella looks just fine upside down...that means it isn't raining. :)

  4. Wow! The cactus rose is gorgeous.

  5. Your Cactus Rose is absolutely beautiful!

  6. You are doing such a great job keeping up with the sampler project...and it looks fantastic!


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.
