Weekend Stitching: Filling an Empty Design Wall

It was a fast weekend, but they all seem to be that way these days.  Saturday was pretty much an all sewing day.  Sunday morning was chores, but there was enough time to get Geometry prepped for quilting before we headed out to set up the 5th grade science demos 




Now that Geometry is all pressed, folded and packaged, the big design wall is empty.  By the time we got home from getting all set up for the 5th grade demos, I was pretty brain dead.  It didn't seem wise to make a start on a new project.  So I finished off the last block #2 block for the Meadow Mist Mystery Quilt.  I've got enough done to be able to lay out the center of the quilt.

The black prints don't show up so well from a distance.  The orange may have been a mistake.  We'll see.  I still have the last set of 8 blocks to make before this one can be assembled into a flimsy.  Those will have to made catch as catch can, the last graduation quilt needs to be the focus in the sewing room this month.  The plan is to get going on that project tonight after work.

  2. I normally don't like orange in anything except fruit, but I love it in your mystery quilt. And I really like the design. I'm tempted to join in the mystery, but I need another project like I need a hole in my head!

  3. Oh boy...what an interesting design. I like the orange just fine, but that's the way with mystery quilts. Hard to tell until you see the rest of it.

  10. I think that black and orange work well with each other. And your quilt will be lovely, I am sure of that.

  11. Yay on Geometry getting off to the quilter! My Dude has picked his fabric (chemistry instead of math) but wants the same layout. So I'm excited to see your quilting! Also, I've seen the finished mystery quilt, and I think your black and orange will look great. It's a lovely pop of color!
