Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Design Wall Monday, May 5, 2014

Three of a Kind, a design by Judy Martin remains up on the wall today. It is slowly growing. There are four of the main squares left to sew up, and 26 of the single border units to make up. After that, it's time to put it all together. I'm really enjoying the depth the optical illusion develops in some of the blocks. All of my other deadline projects are done, with the exception of some hand stitching on my A Road Runs Through It..... challenge piece for the guild. So, this project here has moved to the top of my getting it done challenge for the month. The only other things I have that need to be finished by a certain date are Avery's birthday gifts. His Thomas the Tank Engine pillow case is done.
 And his pajamas are all cut out and ready to put together, probably on the weekend. I have enough of the pillow case fabric left to do a topper for the window in his room, as well. I just need to remember to get the measurement for it. There, I just texted Laurie asking for the measurement., so now I don't need to remember to do that any more.
I'm going to Link up to Judy's Design Wall Monday and also to the goal setting party for A Lovely Year of Finishes. Then, I'm going to work on doing some more Three of a Kind blocks. I would love to have this finished way before the end of the month.


  1. Love your 3 of a kind. Look forward to seeing the final setting.

  2. love 3 of a Kind and the Thomas the Train pillow-bet the pj's will be adorable! sounds like you are all organized and getting things done! that's wonderful!

  3. I have a book with that Judy Martin pattern in it and it's one I would like to try someday.
    I think there is a lot more piecing to that pattern than one might expect!
    I like how yours is coming together!


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.
