Design Wall Monday - 7/2/12

DESIGN WALL MONDAY - More Squirrels!
Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

I get distracted quite easily -

And am always seeing "Squirrels" -

And I like shiny objects - ;))

So - just because I'm only showing LHQSQ blocks -

That doesn't mean that I don't have other stuff going on - ;))

Floral Applique is on the hallway design wall -

JRRQ#3 is off to the quilter -

Jelly Beans is in a box waiting its turn to go to the quilter -

Wolf Song is back and in its new home -

JRRQ#1 and #2 are waiting for #3 to come back -
So they can all be mailed to my nephew -

And I made some more hearts -

So I managed to get a BUNCH of posts transferred from my WORD doc drafts -
to Blogger - AND get photos edited and added - and all set up to go "live" -

Some of the photos are scans of my older quilts -
So I have some new Quilt Journal entries ready to go -

AND another batch of blocks are worked up - so they are ready, too -

YAY for Blogger "DRAFT" mode - ;))

And if you’re wondering what all of the white pages -
On my design are -

They are tracings of some of my stencils - ;))

This is How I Do It -

I take one of my stencils -

Trace it on notebook paper -
And pin it to the wall -
To see which one I like the best -

I like this border -

And the corner -

But I think the scale is too large -

I think that it would overpower -
The smaller scale leaves and flowers -
In the body of the quilt -

So I look at the stencil tracings -

Every time I go down the hall -

And one of these days -

I’ll turn those stencil tracings -

Into the border for this quilt - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Okay, so if you like that design for your border, can't you scan it into your computer and print it out in a reduced size? I'm not real savy on stuff like that, I remember figuring out how to do it once and for the life of me, haven't figured it out again......

Ok now!! I'm exhausted just reading your list. I think it's time for my nap. Really.... good for you and your stick-to-it-ism. (that may not be a word but it's the only thing that fits). ;0)

Have you ever seen the movie, "UP". My family has picked up the dog character's tick of blurting out, "Squirrel" whenever spotted. Always get a giggle.

I am also easily distracted, not to mention I have to always have one ear opened for the kids.

Looks like you have been busy. I love the floral quilt, photoed.

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Yes, Tracy - that's exactly where I got it - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

I think my printer/scanner will do that - but I'm not exactly sure how - so that's on the list too - just not there yet - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

Thanks, Linda! I like your new word - ;))

Oh I am so with you on "squirrels, shiny objects---wanna have fun" I think creatively you HAVE to do so to keep things fresh and interesting.

Stop over at my place if you get a chance---I am on a roll about drafting and something that happened this morning in regards to a quilt list request. I also have some thoughts about how nothing is ever truly new in quilting with an homage to our quilting foremothers.

And I like the idea for the stencil preview!
