Design Wall Monday - 8/15/16

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 -
More little Crumb blocks -

And while they have been quietly accumulating - my pile of quilt tops that "need to be quilted" has been sitting there - waiting patiently for me to get back to practicing my Free-motion quilting. I keep walking right past it - which isn't getting any of them done - so yesterday I pulled out the blue placemats - they needed a bit more quilting in the bottom section - and I got them done - finally - ;))

A clamshell stencil/pattern filled the area nicely. I like how the blue thread blends in and hides some of my boo-boos - and they're not perfect - but they're quilted - ;))

It's funny that I had forgotten how much FUN plain old "quilting" can be -

Whether I'm using a walking foot or a darning foot -

Stitching straight lines or curvy lines -

With or without marking the quilt top -

Doing it free-form style or trying to follow the lines -

And I totally forgot how much I ENJOY doing it -

Now that I know that I CAN do it -

I just need more practice -

So that's the plan for now - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I agree. You get busy enjoying piecing and forget how fun (and rewarding) doing the quilting can be.

    1. There is so much to ENJOY about quilting - except maybe wrestling with a humongous border - but there are ways to get around that - so it's all good - ;))

  2. The thing I like best is when all those little blocks are piled up and you have enough to assemble into something bigger. I like doing the arranging and making up a lay-out best ... other than turning the final binding and saying "DONE".

    1. Oooh - "DONE" sounds good - that might become my favorite part - ;))


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 The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.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 - ;))
