DESIGN WALL MONDAY

Not much new around my sewing room.  I've been too busy shopping and wrapping Christmas presents.  I had planned to spend Sunday afternoon making up quilt kits from my stash to take south, but we had a power failure, probably caused by the wind storm, and since I work in the basement with one tiny window, there wasn't enough light to work there.  The good news is that DH and I spent the time working on our Christmas cards.  We get them prepared before we head south, then our house-sitter pops them in the mail on December first!
I  did manage to get some more done on my hexagon quilt.  Just have to finish the green round, then I can begin adding the corners to make it more rectangular.  DH would like me to leave it as it is, but I think it will be more useful as a more regular shape.

Check out what everyone is working on at Judy's blog.

  1. That must be taking YEARS!!! Looks very similar to one I saw Bonnie Hunter working on when she was here for our guild last week.

  2. I couldn't believe what I read, finishing up and wrapping Christmas presents. I just started on mine this weekend. Your hexie quilt is really looking good. How big is it going to be?

  3. Your quilt looks great. I agree that I would make in a regular shape. Just a beauty.

  4. I love your hexagons - they are beautiful! I kind of vote with your hubby on the shape but it sure would be a booger to bind!

    I also think you are very organized to have Christmas stuff done already, but since you are headed south it makes more sense. I am one that waits until December....

  5. I'm in awe -- Christmas cards ready, presents bought AND wrapped? I just asked my kids to let me know what they want! Sigh... I'll catch up -- hopefully before January! LOL

  7. It doesn't surprise me that someone who is detail-oriented enough to make a lovely, intricate quilt like this would have her holiday cards ready to mail in October--WOW!!
