On my Design Wall

is a mess.  Wanted to make another quilt as last week's, but it went awry.  I thought of making each block have a different solid.
Ugh - I didn't like it.  No cohesiveness as before with only one sash color.  So what to do?  I decided to take those blocks I'd made and change them a bit.
This I like.  Need to change out the other blocks to decide for sure.  Has this happened to you?  I see the use of making a color drawing first before one starts to make blocks.

I've finished quilting the blocks on that large commission quilt.  Here's another block:
Have you guessed what's on the other side yet?  The quilting was getting difficult because the quilt is so heavy.  I've never been one to use gloves, but my hands were getting a rough workout. Maybe I should go to the LQS and buy some.  Then I remembered. 
Not long ago, I bought a pair of gardening gloves at the 99 Cent store.  Gave them a try, and they worked! Made moving the quilt around much easier.  With all the blocks quilted on to the sashing.

The mailman delivered a wonderful package! Free Spirit was celebrating National Sewing Month (September) all month long with a big giveaway.  The top prize was a Janome machine.  While I didn't win the Grand Prize, I was one of three winners on day #11.  

Yes, 24 fat quarters of Amy Butler's new collection Soul Mate plus Coats+ thread to quilt what top I make.  I know just the top I want to make.  Ah, WIPs get farther down on the list. Linking up to Design Wall Monday, BOMs Away, and Monday Making.

What are you up to?  It was 98 degrees outside today, so it was a good day for being indoors and quilting.  Blessings,
