Design wall 8/24/15 row by rows

I didn’t get any sewing done on the delectable mountain blocks for the quilt that was on my wall last week. That quilt got replaced with my row by rows. I need to get back to working on them. Here’s the rows that I received from the other members in my group.

I have some extra embroidered blocks that my friend Joelyn made that I will encorpoate into the quilt somewhere.

I also need to finish my row.😳 I made enough to exchange with everyone else, I just didn’t have time for mine.

It was hard to give those rows away. I wanted to make them into a quilt. 😊Maybe someday I will make a Dresden plate quilt………..maybe!! LOL!!!

That’s what I have on my wall this week. To see what others are working on go to


Design wall 8/16/15 rock house and panel quilt 

It’s  been a busy summer around here and I have neglected my blog. I’ll try to get back on track, but no promises on that.😳

I did get the Quilters saying quilt finished over the summer.

Also the triangle quilt is quilted and bound.

Here’s what’s currently on my design wall this week. I worked on getting the rows sewn together over the weekend and I have the first border  on. Yea!

I need it to be bigger so that it will fit the bed, so the plan now is to add on a pieced  border. I’m thinking some delectable mountain blocks would look good. We’ll see……

That’s it for now. To see more walls go to


Misc stuff

My friend Joelyn came by the other day  to pick up one of her quilts I had ready for her and she had a little gift for me.

She does beautiful embroidery work!! I love it!

She left her Accu cutter with me so I could cut out some hexies. Took me maybe 5 minutes at the most, to cut all these perfect hexies out. 


I think I could cut shapes all day with one of those! Might not get anything sewn together, but I could sure get things cut out!! LOL!!

Guess I better get those Dresden flower shapes done before I start working on the hexies………


Design wall 6/1/25

Wow, can you believe it’s  already June? Time is flying by!

I have a few sashing strips sewn onto the rows of my what quilters think stars.  

I’m hoping to have all the rows sewn together tonight. But we’ll see…….

Last week I showed my EPP project that I had started. Well, after making a few of them, I decided to change the plan. I am now making Dresden flowers for my row by row. They are much faster to make than those other pieces were.  

I still have to put a circle onto the center, but they are faster and since I have a deadline…..that’s what I’m making. Hope they like them! 

Well, that’s what I have on my wall, to see more walls, check out


Design wall 5/25/15 stars and EPP stars

Here it is Monday again. I’m still working on my purple stars, I finished making the rest of the blocks this last week and have the first row sewn together.  

 I’m hoping to have this finished before July gets here. That’s my goal anyway!! 😀

I signed up to participate in a row by row at my guild that’s due in July. I finally decided what I “think” I’m going to make. It’s going to be a blue and white row by row. I came up with some pretty blues so I’m doing some EPP blocks that I will applique onto a white background. 

First one done! Yea! Many more to go…………

That’s it for me this week. To see more walls check out


Design wall 5/18/15 stars & state block

Guess I’ll check in this week with a quick update. I’ve been sewing a bit on these blocks.

I bought a couple of the “what quilters really think” panels several years ago and never did anything with them,  I finally decided to make them into star blocks and use up more of my stash of purple fabrics. I have 24 blocks made with 24 blocks left to go. Woohoo! Half way done!! So, that’s what’s on my wall……..

I’m making progress on my next state block also.

That’s it for my design wall this week, to see more walls check out


Design wall 4/21/15 HST’s/Log cabin/state block

This last week, I managed to finish getting the log cabin quilt all pieced and ready to quilt, added the last 2 borders on the HST’s quilt top and now it’s ready to quilt. I also finished embroidering the Illinois block.  


Right now the HST’s quilt is still on the wall, I can’t decide which project will go onto the wall next….maybe I should get back to this one……. 

I did make a couple more blocks the other day. Hmm. We’ll see. Anyway, to see more design walls check out
