Design Wall Monday - 9/14/15

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 - ;))

On my wall today -

I got the letters sewn down -
And the panels together for the top - ;))

Unless you have the same kit -
You probably wouldn't notice -
That my turkey only has ten feathers -
Not twelve - ;))

The kit provided a template -
But I had an 18-degree Stack-n-Whack(R) Fan Ruler -
So I used that instead - ;))

On the Free-Motion Quilting front -

I have been using the Batik Placemats for "warm-up" -
The light blue thread blends right in -
And there are a bunch of areas to fill in - ;))

I finished quilting the Cottage Wall Hanging -
Using a cream-colored thread -
And trying several different patterns - ;))

I also finished quilting the Halloween one -

Trying to do a Free-Motion "loopy-flower" thing in the pinwheels -

The photos are crappy - sorry -
But the flowers (and bloopers) show better on the back -
Because of the orange thread on the black fabric -

If only I knew what I was doing - sigh - ;))

I need to bind these two -

Then tackle the pile in the corner - ;))

And I keep hearing these voices in my head -

Practice - Practice - Practice!!! - ;))

Done is better than Perfect!! - ;))

Practice doesn't make perfect -

Perfect practice makes perfect!! - ;))

Those voices could be really annoying -

If I wasn't having so much FUN - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I think your free motion quilting looks fine. The best part is that it DOESN'T look like a machine did it. it looks handmade and amazing. The beauty of imperfection should be embraced.

    1. Thanks, Gene - you're right - imperfection is part of the charm of handmade stuff - and I can do charming - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
