Design Wall Monday - June 17th

As usual, it was a fast weekend.  My Guy had a nice Father's Day.  We didn't do too much, which was OK with him.  

Drama Teen finally finished up her entry for an on line science competition about 8 PM last night. Since I'm head editor and panic manager, I didn't get a lot of sewing done this weekend since she was working on her entry (yes she waited till the day it was due to start it).  So there's not much of a change to the design wall.  I spent a lot of time trimming up Calico Cats and making the binding so I can get that one off the "to do" list.  So there was progress, just not much that shows up on the design walls. 

Two more blocks of Neutral Gems did get finished and sewn into the second block.  

Neutral Gems
Pattern is "Gems" by Donna Lynn Thomas
found in the book Patchwork Palette
Started May 26, 2013

I'm really like the pattern these blocks make when assembled.  These blocks are pretty labor intensive, so it's going to take a while to get this quilt done.  

Mon Ami is still up on the other design wall, but it hasn't changed much since last week.  I finished binding Sweet Treats, but didn't get a chance to get any pictures.  

That's it for my design wall today.  I'm linking up with Patchwork Times today as usual.  If you get a chance, grab a cup of coffee and check all the other links.

Lots of eye candy since I also jumped to the other posts. I really like Mon Ami. Maybe someday but I need to finish rather than start. Your neutral gems is coming along. I really like how it looks. Good job.

That does look labor intensive but it sure is going to be pretty. When I saw the snapshot on my blog roll list, I thought it was a black and white photo. What are the colors in it?

I had to laugh at your editor and panic manager. I used to hold those positions also. Now I'm the emergency marriage counselor when poor sil forgets to call home to let her know he's running late.

Neutral gems is very nice. I hope you got the panic under control .. why is it kids wait until the last minute to do things .. no wait, that's people, not just kids.

"panic manager" ...Gosh that made me laugh . I can just see you wrangling all the panic that was happening with DT.

A finish (even with out pictures) deserves a virtual clap . Well done Kate!
