First Monday I'm home this year...and what is on my Design Wall

Since I was traveling last Monday, I didn't have anything on my design wall and was unable to post. I also haven't been doing a lot of sewing as I have my quilting machine in the shop and I really hate the thought of quilt tops taking over my sewing dungeon (at least that is my excuse).

I did get some quality time with my Bernina over the weekend. It felt SO good!

Since I will want something quick and easy to get the feel of quilting on the frame back...I started on a baby quilt. I fell in love with this daisy print and pulled a brown dot and a pink gingham to coordinate and started up. It was hard to leave it unfinished but I had to move on to feeding the family, so there it is, unfinished on my design wall.

I am looking forward to later in the week when my Voyager comes home and we can quilt this quilt. I have a lovely black and white from my cousin that is first in the queue. I am excited to work on her quilt...have my freemotion design worked out and that is always when I get excited. Does working out the quilting design do that for you?

Check out more design walls at Patchwork Times.

That is way too cute. I love the daisy print and pink/brown is one of my favorite combinations.

I love the quilting part and if I have an idea for the design, I can hardly wait!

I love having a quilting design ready to go on a quilt. What I don't love is not having a design in mind but the quilt is ready to be quilted. That happens frequently and is VERY frustrating. Really cute quilt top: I like pink and brown.
