Monday Design Wall -- Slow Piecing Week

October BOM - DONE! I am a late starter in the BOM hosted by Jackie at Canton Village -- but here is Block 2. Vicki, with Field Trips in Fiber designed the above block -- so cute and simple. I am using a layer cake from Moda, Basic Grey/Origins and making 2 blocks each month. Of course, I still need to make November and December to catch up -- January will be posting on the 25th.

Finished quilting my sister's project Sunday -- Phyllis is such a great piecer -- everything is so precise!

Here is a "surprise" project that I finished a couple of weeks ago -- HOWEVER I need to be careful and not be in too much of a hurry, notice the safety pin below. Apparently, while passing the lint brush, I discovered a missed area. Good thing I caught before shipping it off to Amy.

I love reproduction fabric -- which you will see again and maybe again yet. I have enough for at least 3 more quilts. This one (no name yet) will be sent to it's new home in Houston, with an unveiling later on.

It's late, and I won't be sewing tonight -- so I need to rush over to Judy's at Patchwork Times and link up with the rest of Monday Design Walls. AND -- I just read that Judy will be receiving a shipment of her newest book, 60 Pieced Borders very soon. I am so glad I pre-ordered, because my autographed book will be arriving here very soon. CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Good work on those BOMs - very pretty! And I love your sister's quilt - nice take on an eye-spy quilt! And the quilt destined for Houston is awfully pretty - love those signature pinwheels!

Enjoy yourself tonight, even if you're not sewing!!

I keep meaning to do those BOM blocks but can't seem to get to them--yours look wonderful, as does your latest quilt. Beautiful reproduction prints and quilting :)

I had to finish mine all before the New Year. I pre-ordered the day Judy announced it. I'm getting it for my 55th B-day.
