Design Wall Monday, June 30th

     I don't want to alarm anyone, but I just realized that as of today, 2014 is exactly half over! Wow!

     Well, there's nothing I can do about that but keep on keepin' on.

     I am still working on Susan's quilt. I got all of the wedges sewn together. I cut out all of the triangles that will make the corners of the blocks.

     Now I am sewing the corners onto each block.

      I started out pressing a crease in the center of each triangle, then lining up the crease with the center of the wedge. I didn't take me long to decide that it wasn't necessary. I just centered the point of the triangles with the point of the wedges. I am doing a quadrant at a time, then sewing the blocks of that quadrant together. I have 2 quadrants completely done, and I am working on the 3rd.

     I think this quilt looks a bit more yellow in the photo than it really is because of the lighting. I also took the photo after dark to post it on DWM. I expect to be done with the top by the end of the week. I have some light peach fabric ordered for the back. It is on it's way. 

     The other thing I have to do this week is make some pincushions,

      note cards, and collate some patterns for the show in Virginia I will be vending at next week. It is called The Blue Ridge Quilt Festival. Come by and see me if you are in the area. 

     That is what I have on my plate this week. Go and see what some other quilters are up to at:

     Thanks for stopping by!
