Design Wall Monday 3-12-12

Is it Monday already? Check out Patchwork Times to see what fabulous projects folks are working on. block of the month club - finished the March blocks so I'm still up-to-date with the program. It's been enjoyable and I've learned a few things. Here are my 6 blocks, so far.

I'm making a quilt for a friend's son - the whole family are fans of the local university's sports program so it was easy to decide how to do this quilt. I bought the fabric from a company that deals with selling fabrics and other items with team logos - there would have been so much waste had I cut the fabric, so I decided to leave it whole and just add borders. The child is a toddler, so I seriously doubt he'll care.

My new sewing machine, the Baby Lock Symphony, is the cat's meow. Oh! My! Gosh! It has been a dream to use and so easy. I made the purple/gold quilt top and matching pillowcase on it, as well as 4 wine bottle totes, and a sofa pillow for my sister. I plan to enjoy using this machine for many years.

Even though all I want to do is sew and play with my new sewing machine, I'm afraid I will have to devote several evenings this week to tackling some much-needed yard work. Oh well, guess we can't sew all the time.


  1. I love your craftsy BOM blocks, they are just wonderful. And the pattern on the sports quilt is indeed too cute to cute up. It looks great.

  2. The colors you've chosen for your Craftsy blocks are great to showcase the different blocks!

  3. The craftsy BOM are really fun. Nice work.

  4. Those are great blocks!! And your quilt is amazing! Great job
