Design Wall Week 41

Well, again the same thing is on my design wall. I am in the quilting stage of my projects.
I am currently quilting Saints Stars and it is slow going. Then I have to work on my secret sister quilt due in December. I probably won't have much to show on the design wall until those two quilts are done. Hopefully, that will be sooner than later.
I have the next two graduation quilts in various stages of construction. One is also due in December (it will be on wall as soon as Saints Stars is quilted and DP is being quilted) and the other in May. Then I have several kits in various stages of construction needing completion.  All the blocks of one are completed just waiting for me to decide how to quilt them. I usually quilt-as-you-go but am not sure with this pattern as how to best do that.

But I did have a finish this week...I made some practice blocks for my saints quilt. My grandson told me that my 4th dear daughter throws things at the TV and punches things, when the Saints are making stupid mistakes. So I made her a "Throw and Pound" pillow from those blocks.  This keeps grandchildren and TV safe and makes good use of orphan blocks. LOL
DH, Pape, found two tall book shelves for more fabric storage. I don't think he wants to build more shelves. The neighbors next door left (landlord doubled rent for the old potato kilt they had fixed into a home) and put these in the trash. Guess they didn't want the landlord to have them and didn't have place in their new home. 
I just looked at my followers...there are 6 people following my blog that are not family/best friend. WoW! Guess I will have to say interesting things and watch my belly aching. Thanks for following my wonderings.
Well, back to quilting on Saint Stars. 
Lator Gators! Have a blessed week.


  1. A punching pillow is a good idea. My teenager could use one. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. I have a quilt that I'm quilting slowly but surely - sighhhhh its a long road huh?!

  3. Great idea with your punch & throw pillow! Good luck with all your started projects!
