Design Wall Monday 082310

Several things going today. All I like on the string quilt is hand sewing the binding down. This may wait until cooler weather and a chic flick. The log cabin is a precut noodle that I just had to have. To me there is not enough contrast between the light and dark. I knew this but wanted to get it sewed up and out of there as it does not play well with my stash. Maybe a back for a baby quilt for my next ggrandbaby if it is a girl. The design wall behind the ironing board has the ongoing project. I'm loving it and going slow so as to not mess it up. I have decided to add a narrow dark border then autumn leaves blocks around it. I don't know where I'll go from there.

I finished the bag

I'm proud that I got this finished.

I want to make me one now.

Design wall

My quilting design wall looks the same as last week. But I've figured out how to do part of it. I had to stop and make a gift. This bag is for my favorite Auntie, in California, who I'm planning on visiting this September.

Always happy to see

I'm always glad to see these guys come. There were two of them and they made quick work of laying down our hay in the little meadow between our house and the road. We only got three bigs bales off of it but this was the second cutting this year.

I guess I need to change my profile as I'm now a great grandmother. I have seen the baby and held it but have not spent a lot of time with it. I'm so wanting to.

I've got the Egret done (He is beautiful in person) and purchased fabric to go with it. I've got plenty of the print so I'm ready to start designing it, which is the hardest part for me. But its becoming my favorite part.
Anyone have any ideas? lets have them.

I'm thinking of a small quilt that would fit across the back of my couch.
