Design Wall Monday

Ok, so I haven’t been posting much about my quilting, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on it.  ๐Ÿ˜‰
My little business had eaten so much of my sewing time in the last two years, this summer I started MAKING time to quilt again.  That has included collecting all my UFO’s, and, yes, I do plan on getting them on their own page……eventually. Lol ๐Ÿ˜€

Since I’ve been working on my Brown Bag Quilt, and it used to be called the Ugly Quilt, I decided to show you another one.  Yes, bless my heart(read *you are an idiot* bahahaha), I have TWO.   Remember the good ole days, when you could watch Alex Anderson twice a day if you wanted?  Well, one show had a segment called What to do with Ugly Fabric.  Being the scrappy kinda girl I am, I thought, “That’s for me.”
So I set to work….four years ago.  How do I know, because a very dear friend was expecting her third baby, and I thought it would make a very cute quilt for a little boy.  This sweet child will be four in February. :-/ 

So here is what I have done….

Thirty 4.5 inch blocks, finished this quilt would be 20×24, without borders.  Wondering where to go from here.  Any ideas?  All suggestions welcome. ๐Ÿ™‚
Happy Monday! <3 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Brown Baggin’ it….(I know your saying, "Will she ever finish?")

Hello, again!  Just wanted to catch you up on the Brown Bag Quilt…. and the winner is…  Jacob’s Ladder

Now just to decide if I should do borders or leave it.  This pic isn’t that great as it was taken late last night, just after the last stitches were put in, and the pressing was done.  I just put it on the floor, climbed up in a chair and snapped it with my phone.  It had been a long day leading up so my hand may not have been so steady. 

At one point I did feel the need to get out of the house, so (or sew, hehehehe), I went to the movies, all by myself.  Solitude, ahhhhhh…. BUT I saw The Social Network, and can I just say….Do Not waste your time or money. :p  Granted, it was a drizzly day and I was in a dark mood, but please, people…. what WAS the point of making that movie?  Those of you who know me, know I never walk in without the popcorn, well I walked out with it too, and promptly put it in the trash!  Pardon the rant, just needed to get it out. There, ahhhhh…….. I feel better now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anywho, if you’ve got any ideas about borders let me know, I think Melissa and I have the binding figured out, and I still haven’t even measured it yet.  It should be 48×48, but we all know about those should be’s.
Lol

Brown Baggin’ It….cont’d (again ;) )

So, I’ve made progress this week!  Amid racking my brain for my business, taking orders, and working on orders, I’ve saved my late nights for my Brown Bag quilt.  This weekend I’m gonna be taking some naps for sure! 

I sliced up some fabric and made some strip sets, laid them out here so you could see how they work together. ๐Ÿ™‚

No basket weaves here, people.  Just seeing how it works together, and making sure the black makes enough of a statement.  Next order of duty, cut these babies up!

Aaaannnnddddd sew them back together again! ๐Ÿ™‚

How am I able to do this at night, when the house is quiet, and no one is calling, “Momma?”
Say hello to my friend….

Yeah, baby!   I’m starting to piece the blocks now, just have to decide how to set them, may have to ask for some help from someone with an analytical mind. ๐Ÿ˜‰  Later, gator!
