Design Wall Monday – December 2

2013-12-01 14.53.10

Well I’ve been very busy working on the applique blocks this last week.  Finished up the last sets yesterday while Alex was napping. I’m about halfway done with this quilt already!  I’m putting it aside for awhile so I can finish putting together the guild challenge quilt for the next meeting (Dec 12th) and so I can put the borders on the scrappy 9-patch quilt.  I have the borders cut out/put together, just need to attach them to the 9-patch quilt.  Not sure when I’ll get around to quilting it, I don’t think I even have a backing for it!  But at least I know I made a quilt 100% from my stash of fabrics.  Not 1 piece was bought for it!

I keep forgetting to mention that I’ve been asked to teach EQ classes for another guild in my area.  Classes will be once a month for 2 hours starting in January.  Obviously I’ll need to take a few months off once the baby is born, but they are aware of it and maybe I can do some lessons they can work on independently while I get the house back in order here.  We’ll see what happens.  Now I need to get started on lessons!!!

Hope to be back with an update this afternoon on the scrappy 9-patch, it shouldn’t be too hard to get it finished while Alex naps this afternoon.

Linking up to Patchworktimes.

    A great way to use up smaller scraps (squares) and highlight some hexies.

    So, where is “your area,” Kelly? I’ve been looking at EQ software online, wondering if I’d really use it. Also, if I’d use it to design better quilts that I would actually make, or if it would suck hours and hours of time just learning to use it and result in LESS quiltmaking. I tried to find a class on EQ near me on the EQ web site but nothing came up anywhere near Charlotte, NC.

    Your little hexies are adorable, and your sidebar tools are terrifying. It looks like you are working on TWENTY quilts at once, including those waiting for quilting plus those in the process of being pieced? WOW. I feel overwhelmed sometimes just working on ONE quilt at a time! I think your brain must have some kind of Pentium processor to enable that kind of quilty multi-tasking. My brain is still running DOS… 😉
