Design Wall Monday

I have a variety of things on the design wall today, although nothing is really ON the wall.

First up, someone gave me fabric for pillowcases yesterday (after I had made my stash report, of course) and since I don't want to "mess" with my relatively good stash reports, I've decided to use it right away. That means I should have at least equal amounts of stash in and out, in regards to this six yards. I'm not promising anything for other fabric though, but I should have to use some stash for the coordinating cuff on the pillowcases. Yeah :-)

Also, I have three more memory quilts to work on and since two of these will share some fabric, I've pulled out the clothing and I'm starting to cut it up. That will take a couple of days at least, so I'm sure I'll still be working in this next Monday. Do you notice the work clothing and plaid theme here?

I'm also working on some embroidery for another order. I have to work this afternoon so I doubt this will be done before I leave, but it will be done tonight. I'm cutting up clothing and pillowcase fabric while the designs are stitching out and I feel good about multi-tasking.

Oh yeah...I want to get Sadie's quilt quilted and bound. That child is 2 1/2 months old and she still doesn't have her quilt! (Bad Grandma, bad Grandma.) Maybe I should look at this another way. At least this'll be finished before she graduates from high school, right?

It sure looks like I might not sleep at all this week. Either that or I have to re-evaluate my goals.

Check out what other quilters have on their design walls by visiting Judy L.'s Patchwork Times. Who knows, you just might find the inspiration for your next project - I know I usually do!

Nothing motivates like messing up a good stash report LOL.

That kind of multitasking is very satisfying! My quilting area is near my kitchen so I love to pop over and put in a few stitches while watching my pots and pans.

I love the baby quilt!

I like Sadie's quilt a lot. I've made a spiderweb and really enjoyed it.

I love Sadies's quilt! I am working on a memory quilt from clothing also.
