Design Wall Monday - June 9th

It was a really nice weekend.  My Guy and I took Friday off, so it was a three day weekend for us.  Even so, the weekend was just too short.  Not enough time for both chores and stitching, but some of both got done.  

I'm still working on stitching down the binding to the back of Sweet Treat.
Sweet Treat
Designed by Judy Laquidara
(pattern available here)

Just one side left to stitch down.  So this should be a finished quilt this week.  

I've been working on a couple of projects over on the machine. One is the May NewFO, which is intended to be a gift for a friend who recently retired.

  Neutral Gems
Pattern is "Gems" by Donna Lynn Thomas
found in the book Patchwork Palette

Only 6 blocks done so far.  I've decided to sew the blocks together in groups of 4, then assemble those into rows.  It will make all the required seam matching a little less crazy I hope. I love the pattern these blocks form.  

Up on the other design wall is Mon Ami, my QOV project.

Quilt of Valor
Modified from the pattern "Mon Ami"
by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company

There are now 20 blocks done, just 10 left to go.  I've mainly been working on these blocks as a leaders and enders project.  This is not the final block layout, the blocks have just been added as they were finished.  The more blocks there are up on the wall, the more I like this project.  

That's it for what's up on my design walls.  You can share what's up on yours and check out what's up on everyone else's over at Patchwork Times.

I love your Quilt of Valor blocks! I'm going to have to look and see if I have that Miss Rosie pattern.

All three quilts are looking good Kate. Especially Sweet Treats. That close to a finish always gets me excited!
