Design Wall Monday::A Very Little Progress

Things have been very busy at work and we went up to my daughter's again this past weekend, so I've accomplished very little sewing this week.  I did manage one more corner star for the Auntie's Pride block and have prepped the other.  The rest will be filled in with the background fabric when I have the time.


And I sewed the border pieces on this block.  I cut enough fabric for more sister's star thinking I might have time to sew over the weekend, but I didn't.

Not much to show for a whole week, is it?

You can see what others have on their design wall this week by clicking over to Judy L.'s blog Patchwork Times.

BTW--I am trying to pass the word about a virtual quilt show from Quilts in the Barn.  Linda is posting pictures of absolutely beautiful quilts from a show she organized in Australia.  All proceeds from her show went to breast cancer research.  You can participate by visiting her blog and making a contribution to a breast cancer research organization near you.  Check out my last post for details!

Auntie's star is really nice. I think that you did a great job...we are always hardest on ourselves.

You must have a lunch break and traveling back and forth to you daugher's home provides excellent opportunity for hand sewing. Might try a project that travels? What you've done on Auntie's Pride project is very nice. This week is just starting...

OMG did you machine piece those - with all those inset seams!! WOW - on my list of things to do before I die is learn how to do a proper inset seam - the first !time LOL!! That kind of piecing I would end up using English paper piecing and doing it by hand - they are quite lovely.!
