Design Wall Monday -- 11/15/2010

My Carolina Chain quilt has grown some.  After taking some measurements and crunching some numbers, I think I will have a satisfactory throw size quilt if I add 70 more blocks and a modest border.  So, I’ve been busy cutting and sewing. 

When I delved back into my quilting closet, I surprised myself with all the fabric remnants I had forgotten about.  I’m a little heavy on greens and a little short on lights, but I should have enough with what I have on hand. 

There are several other projects waiting in the wings so I want to finish this one.  Unfortunately, work on it needs to pause later today, as I really must hem up some pants. 

A few of you were nice enough to inquire about my new smart phone.  I found its internet and e-mail features useful while travelling to the Quilt Festival in Houston.  I still don’t quite get the texting thing, but am forcing myself to try that too.  I've also discovered I enjoy listening to music on it with the ear buds.  There’s a pretty steep learning curve, but I think I’ll adapt to this new tool.

Be sure to check out other design walls at Patchwork Times .
