Design Wall Monday Jan 25

Every Monday Judy over at Patchwork Times prods us along some fantastic project on her design wall and then wants us to post a picture of what is on ours.  Well this year I haven't had much going in the way of design wall Mondays.  So here are a couple pictures of what was on my wall this morning.  The 3 blocks were for a Christmas Tree online swap and the others were for another online swap to make a Buckeye Beauty.

Design Wall Monday Jan 11

Part of these blocks were on my design wall last Monday.  This week I have all 6 of them up and am playing with how I want to group them.  Right now the top 3 will be the kitchen valance, the 2 will be the door hanging and the one lonely one will be a table topper which will be crazy quilted.  Am also going through the stash looking for fabrics to put with them for borders,etc.  I hope to have these done soon.  Of course I had to include a picture of Eddie.  Currently he is sleeping on the couch on top of the tree skirt.  I had the skirt in our room waiting to be put away with some other items, once I got a container to put them in and he thought the other night she should get up on the cedar chest and sleep on it.  So I brought it out in the living room.

Design Wall Monday Jan 4

I actually have 2 things on my design wall for today!  The hearts are from a swap I did with an online group last year.  I am going to use 3 of them to make a valance for my kitchen window, 2 of them to make a front door decoration and the last one to make a small table topper for the table in front of our couch.  I was talking with Diane yesterday and she suggested I do some crazy quilt stitching on the one for the table topper.  So today I will spend a little time looking at stitches on my machine and looking for my lacey appliques to see if I have one or two that might work for this as well.  The blue and cream blocks blocks are for another online swap I am doing and I will be finishing up the other color scheme today and get them ready to mail off soon.  The ones I have gotten so far are really pretty.
