Monday’s Design Wall

BOO’S QUILT:    A dear friend and member of the Cotton Country Quilters of Bastrop, LA had a massive stroke several months ago.  She is still in rehab and making progress, but has a long way to go.  The CCQ group made blocks for a throw-size quilt to send to her.  I  pieced it Sunday afternoon, and will be quilting it as soon as I can figure out what to do with the borders.  I thought I had something in my stash that would do for the 2 borders, but it just did not look right.  Aw shucks… a trip to the quilt shop will be needed.  :)


This quilt is bright and cheerful.  Boo loves pink and purple so I know she will enjoy snuggling in this quilt.  We each wrote messages on the snowball blocks, and we hope she will get great comfort and joy from reading them.


Other accomplishments this week…

1.  The shelf for my quilting room is painted and does really look nicer!

2.  Termite damage to the floor (discovered when I moved the shelf to paint it) has been repaired by DH and BIL… it really is a good thing IQ was delayed.  That allowed them to handle this before it was installed.

3. The housework I had planned on doing before IQ arrival has, for the most part, been done.

Speaking of IQ…… 6 more days!!!

I’m getting excited!  Sure hope things go as scheduled.  If so, IQ will arrive on Oct. 3.   ‘Nuff said….

Have a wonderful week, and do go check out other design walls at Judy’s Patchwork Times!



  1. See Kat...good things do come to those who wait. Sorry you had the delivery delay, but seems that really was a good thing. Glad your work is done. Now the real waiting can begin.

  2. What a wonderful gift for your friend.

  3. Your friend is lucky to have people who love her so much!
    glen: the quilt is gorgeous!

  4. Great idea for someone going through such a long rehab and recouperation. I hope the IQ gets there soon and can't wait to hear how it goes.


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