Design Wall Monday - September 16th

I woke to the sound of thunder this morning, which is a good thing.  It's been several weeks since it has rained and things were starting to get really brown around here.  The only thing I didn't appreciate about the storm this morning was the loss of power.  Thankfully I was out of the shower when it went dark.

The sewing room got cleaned up this weekend, sorry no pictures.  It wasn't so much the cluttered as it was dusty and in need of vacuuming.  Though I did finally clean out one of the books cases so I had room for some of my quilting references.  Sunday I was back to stitching.  Progress is being made on several projects, but the only one that has enough completed to be up on the design wall is Back to Square One.

I finished with Clue 5 and am more then halfway done with clue 6.  I'm still 3 months behind on the clues, but am catching up. I'm happy with the colors and how it's working out.   

That's it for my design wall this week.  Check out Patchwork Times for more eye candy.

The colors blow me away everytime I see this quilt in progress. Love it!

Bonnie said...

Yep, those colors are wonderful. I may have to visit that pattern. (no, I can NOT start something new!

Enjoy the process -- yours is coming along beautifully.

Becky said...

Wonderful start. Love the crisp colors, but I like any blues. Who said a mystery must be done with a group?

Dry dry dry here--though rain is surely needed. Glad you got some--and time in the sewing room. Your colors are so pretty together.

Linda said...

Oh my! This is beautiful. Love your fabric choices. Nice.

Congratulations on the tidying. I always feel so much more creative when my room is tidy and doesn't have an inch of fabric dust on everything.Honestly anyone who tidies and dusts their sewing space has my undying admiration.

Mon Ami is looking good!

This is just gorgeous, Kate. The colors are wonderful together.

After a summer of nothing but rain we are happy to be having a streak of sunny days. I think we are now sharing our rain with others and happy to do so. Love your Back to Square One: the colors are beautiful.

We had rain this week for the first time in several weeks, technically were in a drought and it's only the first month of spring!

That quilt is really coming together -- love the colours you have chosen.
