Design Wall Monday

I missed last week for sharing so this week I have 3 projects that I will be hopping around with.  Go on over to Judy at Patchwork Times and see what everyone is working on.

As if I didn’t have enough projects to work on I have started another – yes I know I said I was going to work on only two until I finished them – not going to happen!  I get bored too easily I guess.

My new project – name to be decided on – working with the red/black/white strips.  Thanks for your opinions on the strips yesterday.  All of the strips are from the same set called “After Hours” from Connecting Threads.  It is weird how that one set of strips didn’t seem to go with the rest but with the way I am using them – it will work out. These will finish at 10 inches I believe although with my usual inaccurate machine piecing they might be trimmed to 10 inches and then finished at 9 1/2


The strips if you didn’t see them yesterday:


I will also get in some hand quilting today on Star Crazy, this is the area I left off on yesterday.


And Joseph’s Coathand piecing,


Surely 3 projects rotating should keep me occupied.  The Farmer’s Wife quilt is a hand quilting project and that will be my take along to quilt group project for now – so I guess I better change that to 4 projects.  This is the next area to start quilting on Friday:


So what are you working on today? Smile
