Design Wall Monday - March 11th

It was a busy weekend.  Unfortunately, work has also been busy and I ended up working a couple of evenings last week in advance of being out of the office for a few days.  So not a lot of sewing this last week.  But there are a few new blocks up on the design wall.  

The OSU quilt has two new blocks up on the wall.

Pattern is A Day at the SpaDesigned by Carolyn S. Vagts
found in the February 2013 issue of Quilter's World

So that's two of 5 rows done.  I hope to get the between rows sashing added tonight.  

The design wall with the Calico Cat project is also sporting two new blocks.

Block 10 is in progress, so I'm almost half way done with piecing the blocks for this project.  

I'm hopeful that this week will be a bit slower and that I'll get in a bit more stitching than I did last week.

I'm loving the Calico Cats -- such fun! And hey -- two new blocks is good progress!! My stitching will be slow this week -- mama told me there'd be weeks like this. LOL! Hope yours slows down and you get in some good stitching time!! :)

both of those are so striking. I love the orange with the black.

I love both quilts. I love how the black frames each orange block, and of course I love that the kitty quilt is blue.

Any progress is good progress. Hope you find some extra time this week to sew to your hearts content.

Orange blocks are looking great, and your cats are more fun as they grow!
