Design Wall Monday

Lots of sewing happening around here – scraps being used up and a whole pile of blocks and flimsies waiting for attention. 

On the design wall:  Pumpkins and Spice001

It’s coming along – all but one element (do you see the hole toward the bottom right – just waiting for some fabric that Jo is sending me).  Next step – get these all sewn together, and work on borders.  Jo and I have talked about making it bigger (bed-size), but I think I’ll just keep it at this – 58”x64” – and use it for a seasonal wall hanging. 

This, of course, means that I need some more wall hangings for the other 3 seasons.  And Jo has one answer – she’s also sending me a Christmas panel that she found on a shop-hop last week.

You can follow our progress on this quilt, and possibly others that we will be doing in the future, over at our shared blog, Cross-Border Quilters .

On a completely different note – it’s our darling daughter’s birthday – she’s….. oops I guess I should never reveal a woman’s age.  She and SurferDude are heading off  for a week in the sun – what a great way to celebrate a special day!

Anyway, off to see a couple of clients this morning, then help our friends take the leftovers from their garage sale to the thrift store this afternoon, and quilting group this evening– I guess there won’t be much sewing done today!

Happy friendships!       Blessings, Peg


  1. Ohhh that is coming along nicely - I am still working on my extra sections - making good, but slow progress.

  3. Really nice! How big is it? Love the egg wreath.
