Isn't it funny how fabric choice can totally make or break a quilt...


Lesson learned,

Design Wall Monday

I'm making progress on a few of my projects. 

Here's where I am with my Scrappy Trip quilt.  All the blocks are done and now I'll be sewing the rows together.  Not sure if I'll get to these today.  Maybe tonight when it cools down some.  It's already 86 degrees here.  Probably will reach 90.  The thought of the weight of the quilt in my lap as I sew the center together just doesn't appeal to me in this heat.  And I refuse to turn on my air conditioning.  I'm a fresh air kinda girl.  *grin*

Here's my other project.  The workshop quilt that we didn't know what we were getting as they were in paper bags.  Each of the quilts everyone worked on were all different.  I was happy I got oriential fabrics, but I'm just not liking this quilt very much.  That and the fact that there wasn't enough fabric for the bottom border and I had to make do.  The only redeeming factor is that when my daughter picked up my grandson last night, I had it laying on the great room floor wondering if I should remove the one side border and replace it to match the bottom border; and she saw it and seems to love it.  Of course, it being in the purple color family may be a big reason.  She's a purple girl.  I was going to donate it to our guild to add to the charity quilts, but now I think I will send it to be quilted and give it to her as one of her birthday gifts (March 25). 

What are you all working on today?  Share with us on Judy's blog.  :o)

I Caved...

Yep, I caved.  I'm weak.  I admit it.  (*hangs head in shame*)  Here are the Scrappy Trip blocks I have done so far...

Yes, they are just like potato chips...you can't stop at one.  There are worse things to be addicted to, I think.  :o)

Addicted and proud of it,
