Monday Design Wall

I started a new quilt. Shame on me. I am putting away the 6 inch blocks for now. They will come back out in the fall. I am making this 2 block quilt and I hope to have it completed for our local unjudged quilt show in October. Here is the first completed block. The eq6 rendering had just sample colors in it.

I have a couple of pictures to catch up on. Here is how much I knitted on my prayer shawl while in the car driving to Longview, Texas and back. It was my daughter's college graduation. A 1300 mile trip!

Here are the fabrics purchased in Longview for future design wall use.

Wow am I sore today. I spent yesterday afternoon gardening. I have been working out too, at the gym, so why am I so sore??

I really like your fabrics for your new quilt, and the star block looks terrific.

I really like that star, going to be a wonderful quilt. I also sometimes just have to put a project away for awhile and do something new. Luckily most of the time I go right back to the previous project and finish (well the top at least)

Ooh, what pretty fabrics you purchased on your trip. The star/snowball quilt will be fabulous.

Lovely quilt in the making. Isn't it grand that we can change horses in the middle of the stream and still make progress.
