Monday Design Wall - November 11, 2013

It was a quiet weekend for a change.  Which is good because this week is going to be anything but quiet.  Club volleyball starts up tonight, which means Drama Teen has some type of practice every night (she'll alternate between volleyball and swimming).  Besides running DT to practices, there is a high school swim meet on Tuesday.  Plus My Guy and I have a work dinner one night and a three day class at work this week.  There may be very little stitching going on this week.  

However, there was some good progress made this weekend, though I don't have a lot of pictures to show that.  I'm almost finished with the 24 log cabin blocks needed for Back to Square One.  I've almost finished another Scrappy Trip block.  There are 5 new Jigsaw "pieces" up on the design wall that I can show off this week.

Piecing these blocks is just about like working on a puzzle.  I cut out each block as I'm ready for it.  The two blocks in row two were pieced because I had the "tabs" cut already.  It's hard to see what the right corner looks like, the lighting in that room isn't great for photography.  It doesn't help that the fabrics are so dark. 

Details of the fabrics in the right hand corner of Jigsaw.  

Drama Teen likes it so far, which is good since it's her quit.    It's been fun to watch this one come together, though not so fun to piece the blocks.  I'm sure at some point I'll have to unsew a tab assembly, you have to watch which one goes where.  

I hope to have more visual stimulation in next weeks' post.  That's it for this one.  Check out all the other design walls over at Patchwork Times.

I made a jigsaw quilt also. I really had to pay attention to get everything in the right place. Here's a link to it on my blog;

LOVE what you’ve been doing over here with the blog changes Kate. Tres chic for fall.

I think the jigsaw quilt is one of those that definitely calls for your full attention in order for it to come together without some sort of disaster!

Interesting to see3 the jigsaw pieces come together. I think it would drive me crazy! I really like yours, esp. the colors you've chosen so far.

Great effect you're getting with fabric choices! Glad DT likes it. Hope you get a chance to stitch some more!
