Design Wall Monday
I have two things on my design wall this morning - block three of the "Raggedies" redwork project, a BOM from Kaaren's blog and some more progress on my miniature paper piecing quilt. (The flannel on my design wall is printed in 2 inch squares, for size reference.)
I had forgotten how long it takes to make such tiny paper pieced sections! I usually "assembly line" sew when I piece, and it is just not possible with this tiny pattern. The original pattern, from a Miniature Quilts magazine from 1995, also calls for a pieced border. DH thinks I should include it, as I've spent so much time on the project already. I'll just see how it is going, as I still have all my Christmas shopping to do (we exchange with the family in October before heading south), as well as planning and packing fabric for my winter projects. At least with DS2 living here, I don't have to clean the house and clean out the food before we go - he just carries on. We're going to miss him when he moves on.
Let's see what everyone else is doing at Judy's blog.
