Design Wall Monday

I had a great weekend.

There were several errand-type things I thought I would have to do on Saturday, but it turned out that I didn't, so I had a whole precious day all to myself. I spent a couple of hours in the morning sewing and I got a lot done on the nine patch. The piece above is three of the strips sewn together. The picture below shows the four other strips. Three of the strips are complete, so I only have one more strip to do! Well, that and assembling the last four strips and sewing them to the first part. But still! Progress!

Saturday afternoon I went over to the Big City to check out the Kaffe Fassett selection at the quilt shop because that's what I want to use for a bag I'm planning to make at next weekend's mini-retreat. I spent a very pleasant hour putting together a red-rose-brown collection for my bag.

An extra bonus for me was that I found some more Prairie Paisley AND some Sunflowers of Provence fabric while I was browsing through the store. Both of these are becoming very hard to find, and I still feel that I need more of each to finish working on those two quilts which I have been neglecting for the last month.

You can check out what others have on their design walls this Monday by checking out Judy's blog.

I'm so glad I checked out your blog today. I just put some leftover bright 9-patches on my design wall this very day and wasn't sure what to do with them. I love how you set these together!!

The nine patches look very pretty indeed. I love your scrappy cornerstones.
