Progressing

Our calendar has been filled with go days and today was surely appreciated as a stay day.
I had a lot to do to get ready for the baby shower tomorrow for my daughter-in-law.
BUT as soon as I finished with the gottas, I loaded up the tutti fruitti quilt!
Now to wait for another home day-looking at the calendar, it will not happen until next Friday.
Who said retirement was boring?!!!! 
I tore down the mismatched flannel table cloths I have been using for a design wall and bought some cotton batting and hung it up-all 12' x 8' of it!  It looks better and works better, too.
Nice to have a win-win solution! 
Of course, I had to put something up on all that blank space!  Another tutti-fruitti tumbler block quilt using the other charm pack I had.  I ran out of block so filled it in with a different edging arrangement this time.  It will cheer me up as I walk past and it will wait for me.....

  2. You are so right about the stay days. I only get one or two a week and they are precious. I keep telling myself it shouldn't be this way but I can't seem to say no to anyone. I adore that quilt. It makes me want to go finish Daddio's but that's got to wait.

  3. That quilt is so cute! I think that burlap might work good too for a design wall. I'll test it and let you know.

  4. The design wall looks great! It just begs to be covered with pieces of fabric... :)

Charms and Jungles

 A new charm pack of has so much potential.... This one has four pieces of each fabric  so I could use them to make something special...
