Design Wall Monday - 10/10

Great weekend! Even though I did A LOT of sleeping, I still got things done around the house and in the studio.

I finished the SIS top and made the binding. I think that I am going to name this Argyle Holiday.

Friday night, I had my nephew's over and Spencer had fun laying out the bug jar blocks for his quilt.

And Ethan was excited to see some cars for him. He just wanted to take something home with him RIGHTNOW so I will have to get to work on his blocks.

Your SIS quilt is super! The name suits it well. I could never do something like that. Nothing would ever line up right!
