Design Wall Monday - February 4th

Sunday was definitely a day of rest around here.  All three of us took naps in the afternoon.  My Guy is recovering from the flu (poor guy got sick when he was on a business trip last week).  Drama Teen is still working on getting back to full strength after her bout with the flu.  All three of us were involved with the Science fair this weekend, My Guy and I as judges and Drama Teen as a contestant. Then we had school auction which kept all of us out late, (DT babysat).  I signed on for clean up duty after the auction which kept me out late and then up early on Sunday.  After a morning spent breaking down tables and hauling chairs, I wasn't able to stay awake once I sat down.  

Needless to say, there wasn't a lot of sewing going on this weekend. I did pretty well during the week at getting in some sewing time.  I finally finished all the "B" blocks for The Sofa Quilt. 


Pattern is Nicole's Sofa Quilt by Judy Laquidara
(available here)

I like how this one is working out.  One of February's goals is to get this quilt to the finished flimsy stage.  I started squaring up the blocks this weekend, hopefully I'll get them all sewn together this week.  

I'm hoping for a slow, quite week where I have some time to take a peek at the other design walls posted over at Patchwork Times.

The sofa quilt is gorgeous! Sorry your bunch is going through the flu. My Hubby has something right now, but may just be the sore throat/cold crud that is also going around.

We've not had to deal with the flu ... but Todd and I have both been miserable with sinus issues (and I wish that wasn't a literal statement). It's like we've been passing it back and forth. It would be nice if we both felt better at the same time!! Your quilt is beautiful -- I mean, WOW! Great job!!! :)
