Design Wall Monday - 8/6

I think that my private Quilt-A-Thon was a success!

I made block #8 for the 2009 Mystery BOM.

And all 8 so far...

I have the signature wall hanging for my co-worker. Her parents turn 80 years old in the next month or 2 and she is going to have the family members sign this quilt in the borders at their party. I just need to stitch down the binding tomorrow at the guild meeting.

I also made a Midget block last night that I will show tomorrow. And I pressed fabric for the baby quilt so that I can start cutting the fabric tomorrow night.

And I made these 2 very happy puppies by stitching up their favorite toys and inserting additional filling and new squeakers where necessary. They could barely contain themselves as I stitched up the holes!

You got a ton of things done! How many more blocks in your BOM? 12 total? I really like it.

Looks like your babies are very happy! Where is the other one?

I just love the fabrics in your BOM. Is it a particular line, or have you mix-and-matched?

Pretty quilt - I loved that Christmas line from 3 Sisters for Moda.

Oh, I know those pups are pleased as peaches!

I'm sure the pups were wondering why you were "playing" with their toys! Such cute puppy pictures. And, the quilt is lovely as well. I have fabrics similar to those in my stash. Perhaps I might be inspired to put them into a quilt! Always enjoy your blog.

Great success!!!! I can't believe you were actually able to get a picture of the pups SITTING (looking) patiently with their toys within reach!

Love the pics of your doxies. We also have two but only one plays with toys. Do you make all their toys? I never thought of doing that.

Lucky puppies getting their toys repaired!

how long till they have them all shredded again? I bet mine could have them pulverized in 10 mins!
