Design Wall Monday

 I've had a productive week. Thanks Judy, for suggesting the UFO challenge. It seems when I work on getting "the assignment" done, I get a lot of other stuff done, too. First, I finished the UFO top for this month. Right now it is on my table being pinned because I am getting this one done, done, done. I was a bit exuberant when I finished it, you can see that post here.

Then I also finished another UFO, not one from the 12 for the year, but another one that I didn't even know was a UFO. It is for my niece who is pregnant, a baby quilt. I got the fleece on Saturday and finished quilting it yesterday. I did it simply, but it is done. It is in the box ready to send today. The shower is in California on Saturday, so I'm sending it to my sister so she can bring it because I'm not exactly sure where the shower is. My sister is so good to me.

And I cut out all the pieced for another QOV. This one is going to be a while. I'm going to get it done between other work. I've finished 5 blocks out of 42, so it will be a while. You can see the rectangles don't look exactly rectangular, they've got the pointy thing going on in the corners, but I think it will be fine.

And today, I quilt the church banner. That's my only job for today. I've been avoiding it because I really don't know what to do, but I'm going to figure it out today and get it done. I have to quilt it, add the tabs to the top and line it. I don't know if I'll get all of that done, but I'm going to give it my best shot.

To get inspired and see what else people have on their design walls, check out Judy's blog.

Wow - you have bee busy girl! Beautiful quilts. Love the start of the QOV - that is striking!

Gari said...

When I saw your banner I saw radiating lines coming out from behind the shield. Of course that could be because that is what I have decided to use on one of my quilt UFOs. ;-)

Bonnie said...

Wow! Done is so fabulous isn't it? And, you look like you are well on the way for several more finishes.

Vicki said...

Lovely quilts and to get so many finishes in is great! I don't think the QOV has any "pointy thing" on the corners! It will be loved.

Kare said...

Great progress Mary! Wish I had your motivation! I an anxious to see how you end up quilting the church banner . . .
