Design Wall Monday Feb. 13, 2012

   My design wall is still stagnant. I have started quilting Saint Stars 2 and it is looking good. It is simple straight line stitching except for these. I quilt on it for 30 minutes and then work on something else for an hour like Tom Cat's face or SHB or Tumblers or house chores.
    DGS#11 helped me cut tumbler blocks on the Go while recuperating from a mysterious rash.  He was amazed that they came out so perfectly. He cut enough for 2 quilts b/c he was having so much fun! He made lots of scraps and used lots of fabric out of the "why oh why did I buy that!" bin.
   I had to stop working on Tumblers, because of a miscalculation causing me to be short by 2 4 1/2 by WOF strips of border fabric. Since I had my BIG GIRL PANTIES on from quilting on Saint Stars 2, I went to the internet, found more of the Debi Hron black flip flops, and bought it. The shipping was more than the fabric! When the fabric comes in, I will finish that top, but in the meantime, I will work on piecing the back, all from the stash, of course.
   I am beginning to wonder who owns who. Lorenzo determines my wake up time, my bedtime, uses me as a pillow when he needs a nap, types when I am blogging, and demands rides. He thinks he is the owner and I am the pet! I am beginning to believe that too! DH just laughs at us but he is getting pulled in by that cute face too.

  1. The fleur de lis looks wonderful. I used that image on a quilt for my daughter last year--so elegant and simple. What fun your grandson had! Hope he's gotten over his rash.

    Pets like training owners, don't they!

  2. How great to have a helper with all that cutting, especially when he's having so much fun doing it! Love the fleur de lis quilting on the corners. Very pretty! :o)

  3. Not only a go cutter but a go cutter operator who looks highly competent! Lucky you. I'll never make a tumbler unless I have a go and I don't particularly want one. Your machine quilting looks great.
