Design Wall Monday–October 24, 2011

I have been mucho busy lately so there is very little on my design wall.  So here is a picture of my design dining room table with a sampling of a little project I am working on.

SNIPPETS AND THREADS (Thank you Becky for the name, it’s perfect.)




These cute little Snippets and Thread catchers are only about 5” across the base and fold flat so that you can tuck one in with your hand sewing. 

It takes longer to pick out the fabric then it does to make one.  I have a free tutorial coming later this week, so be sure to check back in with me. 

To see what others have on their design wall, check out Judy’s blog

Have You Missed Me?

I know, I’ve been missing for waaaaay to long.  I have excuses but probably not very good ones.  Two Wacky Women had a retreat, then the next day I got on a plane and flew to Georgia where I spoke at a guild and taught at a three day retreat.  Back on a plane to California for another Two Wacky Women Retreat followed by my guilds quilt show this weekend.  Quilters by the Sea 

In the mean time I am getting ready to exhibit at Houston’s Quilt Market which is a wholesale show, not open to the general public. 

The best thing that’s happened over the last few weeks is getting my cinderblock, back yard wall painted.  Wait until you see it, it’s fabulous.  More about that in the next few days. 

As you can tell, I’ve been a busy, busy girl but enough of that for now.  Back to the quilt show.  Today is the last day of the show.  I have two quilts I made that are on displayed, along with my President’s Quilt.  But………..the very, very special quilt I entered belongs to me but was made by my dear friend Margie Oshwald.  Margie is very quiet and shy so I knew she wouldn’t entered a quilt on her own, so I did it for her. 

105. Robin Gallagher • Wednesday Wackos

These are tiny pieces that she hand appliqued.  Her work is just wonderful.  If you get a chance to attend the show, please vote for this quilt, Number 105 on the ballot.  I would love for Margie to win a ribbon for this wonderful, playful quilt.
