Design Wall Monday, 8/15

My first design wall post in almost 2 months!

Friday night, one of my nephews spent the night here and he picked out the bug fabric that he wants me to use for his bug jar quilt.

He even had to tell me which fabrics he wanted to have 2 blocks made from. And he wants to tell me where to put the blocks in the quilt once I have them done.

And yesterday, it was cool and breezy here so the pups were able to enjoy the new mattress and an open window!

How sweet that he is so excited about the quilt! Hunter is like that too when I am planning one for him. I had even bought a tiny singer at a yard sale and he did a little sewing on it when he was about 5 yrs old. I also have a large quilt that Andrew made a block for it too.

I can't wait to see how your quilt progresses, love those fabrics
