Design Wall

My design wall has the borders for the Saints Stars and blocks from my daughter's graduation quilt (Dec.18th.) (One project that won't get finished on time! I think it will need to be bigger than the planned 42" by 42".) There are pairs of fabrics for pillowcases/ potato bags/ potholders all from my stash. Some wild pillowcases for  wild grandchildren and distinctive items for DDs.
I think that Saint Stars needs a 4" border to stop the center and then it will be ready to bind. I am planning a 1 1/2" strip of the gold and then a 2 1/2 inch strip of the black with binding in gold. If the young man doesn't like it, I do know, that it makes for lovely naps b/c not too heavy and not too hot and an ex-son-in-law might buy it from me if current son-in-law doesn't claim it first. LOL
I am working on sewing bindings when I am not sewing. "Witch Doctor says Jungle Love" is in the binding process and should be finished by Christmas as well as DD#1's quilt and the 4 charity quilts for the guild. Guess I will have to force myself to sit and watch tv...oh, wait, Pape has bowling this weekend so I will have a full day to sew bindings by hand while waiting for him to finish.
Leeapaul has been very loving today...either he is feeling bad or he is cold. Either way I am worried about him.
Lator Gators. Have a blessed week!


  1. Congrats on your daughter's graduation. My oldest will walk tomorrow evening :) I did not make her a quilt since I made her one for Christmas. She is gonna have to wait.

  2. Sure looks like you will busy with all your projects. Always fun to work with a variety of fabrics. And it will be interesting to see which son-in-law ends up with the quilt! LOL. Cheers! Evelyn

  3. Charlene, I like the optical illusion that your Saints Stars presents. Funny your current and former SILs like the same thing... Looks like you've got enough going on to keep busy and maybe a warm lap with Leeapaul.

  4. your son in law will win if the saints quilt is up for I am positive the man will like it. Its gorgeous.
