Well, here's what's on my design wall today.
I started a new quilt. This one is for my daughter's bed. It's based on the pattern Lizzy's Parade which I saw in the in Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, Winter 2009 edition. But, the instructions on how to cut out the triangle were woefully inadequate, so I just kinda figured it out for myself.
It seems to be coming together okay. Here are some of the blocks on my design "chair."
Just a few more weeks and I'll have an actual design wall! Woo Hoo! The basement is coming along really nicely, so we should be able to move in right after the first of the year.
Hope everyone has their Christmas sewing done. I am a procrastinator, so I don't. I have a few more aprons to make. Plus, I have shopping to do for some nieces and nephews, but my oldest daughter is going to help me with that today.
My free motion foot hasn't come in yet for my new Janome, so I won't be able to get the quilt done for my sister which is a big disappointment.
She lives in Kansas and we'll be leaving on Wednesday to see her and the rest of my family.
I want to be able to see her face when she sees the quilt for the first time and I probably won't see her again face-to-face until next Christmas!
So, my options are:
1) Show her the top so I can see her face when she sees that. Then bring it back home and quilt it and send it to her.
2) Wait until it's all finished and then send it to her.
3) Wait until I see her next time to give it to her.
Hope you're having a great holiday.
Have a quilty day and don't forget to pop over to Judy's website and see what everyone else is up to.
