Design Wall Monday 01/11/16


I finished a quilt top yesterday.  It almost didn't come together, though.  I ended up catching whatever bug has been going around and it thoroughly kicked my butt for a while.  I am thankful that it wasn't worse - this time last year I was getting over my second cold of the season and those both lasted a couple of weeks.  This time I was knocked out for about three days, but was still weak and out of it for several more.  I do have my class preview night tonight, so I had to push through and get this project done.  It's a design that's been floating around the Internet for a while now in various forms.  Most recently it was featured on the Fat Quarter Shop's blog.  Their version was bigger.  I did make enough blocks to make their version, but it was just too big.  Now I have enough leftover blocks to make a baby quilt, so no worries there.  It was so fast and easy - it uses charm squares, so most of the cutting was already done.  I pulled the white-on-white print out of my stash.  Hooray for stash busting!! That piece is completely gone now - I used every bit with no scraps leftover.

That was all I managed to accomplish this week.  Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what everyone is working on this week.  Also linking up with Let's Bee Social and Quilt Story later this week.

For being sick, you did a lot! Get stronger before you tax yourself too much. Relapses are worse.

Looks fantastic - hooray for stash-busting (something I am aiming to do more of this year). Glad you are feeling better too!
