Design Wall Monday 12-28-15

Actually the design wall is empty at the moment while I finish some projects.  Here is the status on my end-of-year to-do list.

#1 – Santa pillow – Done and Theo approved.


#2 – Hem pants – Done and delivered.

#3 – Star of Yesterday quilt top – Done

121815 (1020x1024)

#4 – Machine quilt Bluegrass Frogs – Started.  I don’t think that this one will get done, but I plan to work on it tomorrow and Wednesday.

#5 – Embroider whiskers on Gus quilt – Done and I love it.

122815A  (807x1024)

#6 – Strip Ribbons – Done.  Dark brown sashing removed and cream sashing inserted which I think looks a lot better.


Considering the holidays, I think that 5 out of 6 projects completed is good.  Recently I came across a quilt that my Mom had pieced and hand quilted.  The only part left to do is the binding, so I am adding that to my list.

I believe that Mom’s plan was to add a ruffled bed skirt/border to three sides of the quilt, but I will just bind it with the black calico fabric.

There has also been some organizing of the sewing room.  I have a long list of projects for 2016, so it will be great to start with a clean work area.

      Thank you – Gus is a favorite of mine as well. I can’t believe how long I procrastinated stitching the whiskers, but now it is done.
