Design Wall Monday

OK… it’s not ON the design wall, and it’s not even ON the sewing machine yet, but here is what I am working on.


I have been oh-so-busy turning a pile of de-constructed men’s shirts into…


THIS…. because I found…



THIS book (Scraps & Shirttails, by Bonnie K. Hunter).


And I  L-O-V-E  THIS quilt.  It’s not for me… but my son decided he needed a king-size quilt for his bed.  Merry Christmas, Jeremy.  I HOPE I have it done by Christmas!!

My design wall DOES actually have something on it.  I finally am satisfied with the arrangement of the One Block Wonder blocks and will sew them when I get an opportunity.  You can’t see them today… they are covered with black plastic because I am painting the shelf that sits right in front of my design wall.  One coat down, one more to go.

Check out other design walls at  Judy’s Patchwork Times blog.

IQ arrives SATURDAY!!  4 1/2 more days of dreaming about what I will do with my IQ.  I have a whole pile of my quilt tops stacked up to practice on, and then will be back to customer quilts after a week of playing on my own things.

Company coming, IQ coming, church things, family things, other busy things… my life-cup runneth over right now.  Be blessed this week in all YOU do, too.  I probably won’t post again until about next Monday, when I will give you a full IQ update.



  1. I've seen that book and loved it. Good luck getting that done in time for Christmas. My favorite was the first one in the book; endless...torment, no that wasn't the name but it would take me approximately forever to get that done.

  2. Love the book, and the quilt. I can't wait to see your design wall when it appears on it!

    I am working with the flannels from pj's. And t-shirts.


  3. I think your son's quilt is going to be fabulous with those fabrics. I love Bonnie's books. You have a very full week planned. Good luck keeping up. :)
    Have fun Saturday.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
