Some weekend work

I feel like I got a lot accomplished this weekend! Here's a rundown of what I did:

In addition to the Stickle block I did over the weekend (which I've already posted about), I managed to put together another mini-chunk of the top.

Paintbox quilt along blocks, weeks 4 and 5
Here is another batch of Paintbox Quilt Along blocks. I'm up to 50 now!

Greenpiece center block prep work
I also started stitching the center medallion for my Moda Greenpiece BOM. I've got the grass and tree trunk completed. Now I just need to stitch on about a bazillion leaves (well... maybe more like 60-70). But at least most of them are now prepped and ready to go.

Prairie Pinwheels on the design wall
And my proudest accomplishment was finally putting up my "design wall" (a fancy term for a giant piece of white flannel thumb-tacked to my wall). I was able to start laying out my "Prairie Pinwheel" blocks and even got a couple rows put together. Woo hoo!!!

I got to do some work in the quilty room and some handwork too. The best of both worlds!


  1. OOOH, love your little stickle chunk, it is really coming together nicely.

    60-70 leaves? It may as well be a billion! That's a whole lotta stitching. I look forward to seeing the outcome, I am sure it is going to be worth it.

    I wish I had a place for a design wall, I am sure it is so helpful. I have a design floor. LOL

  2. Wow! Congratulations! You're inspiring me to maybe get some sewing done this week. I've been really lax.

  3. lol, I really can't get over how much you have been doing. Are you trying to get as much done as you can before the baby comes?

  4. Goodness, you are ambitious! And with a toddler and pregnant, too! Your design wall looks fantastic and I bet it is going to be fun to work with.

  5. It looks like dad was keeping the boy happy. You have been very busy.

  6. I love weekends like that, I am due for one I'm sure. All your projects look wonderful and the pinwheel quilt looks like heavy duty piecing!
