design wall Monday....
I finally have something on the design wall. The top set of blocks are my First Saturday blocks from the LQS. There are 12 pieced blocks with an alternate applique block available each month. I don't plan on doing any of those. My goal is to make the whole quilt top for $5. It cost $5 to sign up. If you show up the first Saturday of the month with your finished block from the month before, they will stamp your card and give you the next block for free! with fabric included! So far, so good.
The second set of blocks is a BOM through my quilt guild. I wasn't going to join this one, but it is only 12 blocks with only a couple to do each month, so here I go again.
I was talking to my second daughter this morning. For some reason she has decided to take 3 kids under the age of 6 shopping for new bedding. Why new bedding??
Sunday morning my grandkids (age 6 and 3) decided to switch rooms. They worked very quietly while my daughter and son-in-law slept. They moved everything, including a TV, bookshelves, toys and finally bedding and pillows. When Mom and Dad got up, they were shocked to see what the kids had accomplished. Of course, then we had a boy in a bright pink room and a girly girl in a blue room. SO....all day Sunday my daughter and sil painted... Now Owen has a green room and Ava has a lavender (Fairy Dust was the color) room.... Isn't that hilarious??? Such funny kids...
They won't say what prompted the moving.
Go to Judy's blog for a Mr Linky and check out what other quilters have on their design wall...
