Design Wall Monday, Jan 18 and FINALLY

Here's what's on my design wall this morning. I had the day to myself yesterday as my husband took the kids (two-legged) to church (60 miles away). I stayed home with the goats because they're ready to kid (have baby goats) any minute. We've been waiting for WEEKS (it seems) for that first batch of kids (four-legged)!

Yesterday, we things finally broke, and three of our goats kidded. We now have six baby goats (kids): five girls (doelings) and one boy (buckling). Here's a picture of my daughter Olivia (my goat girl) feeding the babies. (Yes, that is a baby bottle, lol.)



If you're interested, we'll have more information a little later on our farm blog Swan-S Grove Farms.

On a quilty note, I took the opportunity yesterday to do something with the Moda Scrap Bag that I had purchased earlier.



Moda Scrap Bags are left-overs from Moda's production of layer cakes. They used to destroy them, but now they sell them to you and me, lol.

I cut the selvages off and straightened them out and then sewed four of them together.



The strips aren't exactly the same width, but I just sewed them together and then cut them into 7 ½ square blocks. That used almost all the fabric. It worked really great!



I did it totally randomly and I'm not sure if I will sew four together to make one big block, or if I'll do something else. I have a few ideas rolling around in my head.

Make sure that you pop over to Judy's to check out what everyone else is up to.
