Design Wall Monday -- 10/17/2011

Our Civil War Chronicles Club meets Wednesday, and I almost missed the deadline for having September’s blocks finished prior to getting the kit for October.  Here they are, four Broken Window blocks.  I’m still working on the 68 Hovering Hawks blocks that will comprise the outer border.  Since those are the assigned blocks for December, however, not having them completed yet doesn’t make me behind schedule.

I decided to continue with the stitching in the ditch on my Plaid Obsession Quilt.  I like the subtle improvement it makes.  The sashing and border seams appeared to have a slightly bubbly appearance and this process makes them look just a bit crisper.  I was pleased to see that I have enough of the fabric I used for my hour glass quilt binding to use for binding this quilt as well. 

We have a busy week planned including the arrival of company on Wednesday afternoon.  So, if I’m going to make it to the CWC club meeting and Sit ‘N Sew, I need to spend today cleaning house.  I’ve been unable to participate in either group since August and I have missed spending time with my quilting friends. 

Visit Patchwork Times today to see what other quilters have on their design walls.

good luck with the cleaning!
Sometimes the simple quilting is just what a top needs.

Your Plaid Obsession quilt is going to be beautiful! I think quilting is what makes quilts come alive. Enjoy your company!

Beautiful quilts! I especially love the Plaid Obsession -- I love the look of plaids in a quilt, but haven't done that yet. Thanks for the inspiration!
