Design Wall Monday, 11/7

I am posting my design wall now because I know that Judy is going to post her post tonight and I don't know if I will be able to get online in the morning. I am so tired right now because of the daylight savings and after I write this up, I am going to knit for a while and then go to bed. It just seems so early right now! lol

This afternoon, I finished my second teal and brown BOM quilt and added it to the stack of recently finished quilt tops and backings. From left to right, I have the second BOM, the Oriental quilt, the Bento Box, the first BOM and the black and white quilt. These were all finished since October 1.

After I finished the second BOM top today, I spent some time straightening up my sewing area and then got busy on the 4th block in the Mystery BOM quilt. Then, I pressed all of my Split Decision pieces so far and assembled 1 block (lower right) and sewed 2 of the 9 patches for the Radiant Star quilt. I had hoped to get a lot of the strips for the 9 patches cut up this weekend, but kept putting it off. Since I made these two blocks and realized how quickly the 9 patches will sew up, I hope that it will motivate me to get the strip sets cut this week.

Right now, Maisy will be happy for a little cuddle time. She doesn't think that the duck is such great company.

Congratulations again on having such a great quilting week. I'm sure Maisy is amazed at your productivity, even if the duck isn't.

I'm toying with fussy cutting some squares today. Just something simple I can do before the move.
