Design Wall Monday – 12/19/2011 and Progress Report on Fixing a Goof

Bob and I spent a couple of days on the Riverwalk in San Antonio last week, celebrating my birthday (belated) and our 34th anniversary.   We visited with our daughter, ate some wonderful food, explored the old missions, visited a great used book store, spent some time and $ in a quilt shop, cruised along the river after dark, and rode a horse drawn carriage one evening.  In short, we had a wonderful time. 

When we got back, I was relaxed enough to tackle the work needed to correct the mistakes I made on the Civil War Chronicles quilt borders.  The corner designs all align properly now and it is finally a flimsy.  It is so big that there is no place in our house with enough open floor space for it to be properly photographed.

Thank you to those who posted encouraging comments after my post last week.  I appreciated the support for getting past this goof. 

Here is my quilt shop purchase from San Antonio:  a Christmas wall hanging kit and the accompanying book with the design.  I recently made a wall hanger for displaying small quilts and would like to make a series of seasonal projects to rotate on it. 

I’m linking up with Judy Laquidara’s Patchwork Times  site where you can enjoy the work of many quilters.

What a spectacular quilt! I, too, have just finished a Civil War quilt--110 x 114--for my CW buff hubby for Christmas. What a TON of work! Don't know how I'll photograph mine either but it will be up on Judy's DWM in a week or two. Happy Quilting!

Your quilt looks wonderful! Sometimes a little break is all we need and it sounds like you had an enjoyable one.

It looks fabulous, well done! And how great you got a really nice day out beforehand too. It really seems to have set you up to come back and put in a good day of quilting.

Still waiting on my border kit. We leave out Saturday so if it doesn't come today or tomorrow, I won't have a flimsy before ringing in 2012.
