Design Wall Monday, August 30

Saturday, I set some tables up in the garage so I could get some quilts basted.

I use basting spray to baste my quilts and that stuff is SO sticky I don't like to get it on the carpet, so since I had several quilts to baste at one time, I decided to move things out to where it wouldn't matter if some spray went here or there.

I had several interesting visitors while I was basting on Sunday.

First, one of the baby goats came to visit.

Then, some kitties came in the garage, knocked over the can that holds their cat food, and started a Sunday picnic.

Kaia, our Great Pyrenees, came in to investigate, but decided she'd wait for her own food for her snack.

Next, my son came for a visit.

We needed to have a little discussion because he had sprayed out a bunch of basting spray all over the table, so I almost ran out before my basting party was over.  But, as you can see, once he apologized, things were all better.

So, I got six quilts basted over the week end and I'm well on my way in my UFO-Busting project

On my design wall, I have more of my blocks for the Hummingbird Quilt.

I couldn't sleep Saturday night, so I worked on these.

And, I have a few more on the back of the machine...

So, what's on your design wall this morning?  Make sure and head over to Judy's to see what everyone else will be up to this week.

Obviously, I will be quilting!  There's a FMQ quilt along over at A Few Scraps, if you'd like to join.

What a cute post -- your son is a doll and that goat would make a nice quilt subject. It's nice that you could actually get something done with all the visitors!

Y0u sure are moving nicely with your UFO busting project! Basting of 6 quilts, wow. I have to do a UBP myself, real soon...

Wow -- 6 quilts basted. I may need to try the spray basting. I love the help!


Looks like you have a zoo. LOL Where in ND are you? I am originally from Bottineau and have lived in Bismarck and Minot. I now live in SE Ohio. I get home maybe once every year or so. I miss family, but not the cold. LOL
Love your humming bird blocks. Have wanted to make that one, but ahemmm.... I have wanted to make everything! I machine quilt for others, so I don't get to do my stuff like I would like.
