Design Wall Monday 6/17/13

Have company tomorrow, so posting early.  One of my challenges for the month is done.  I made my block lotto blocks. They were fun and I learned a new way to make 8 HSTs in one batch. A good trick to remember for other times.  The pattern is called tall ship. They're for the Block Lotto.  If you like to make quilt blocks and share  or learn the technique- visit here.  And it's my Nothing But UFO challenge for the month!  I have found how to make progress here at my house - cut my projects into small bits, and then they aren't so daunting. Visit Carrie to see how others have done.



And I finished all the blocks of DGDs quilt!

So glad to be quilting again, no matter how much fun I had last week.

I'm linking to Judy's DWM at Patchwork Times. See you there.

Love both projects! I will have to look at the 8 hsts in one shot technique.

I recognized those ships! Isn't it an appealing block? Your DGD's quilt looks great. I like crisp checks almost as much as I like polka dots. (Hmmm....that gives me a design idea!)

Love the pinwheels and plaids, and your tall ships look good.
Love your ships sailing tall....grin.

I am so ready to get back on my quilting time frame - still not there, yet, but I almost have the house all back together. So hopefully tomorrow. :) The pinwheels look great!
