Design Wall Monday

This is the last Design Wall of 2012, and the year has flown by.  It seems like only a few days ago I was making a list of all my UFO's and getting excited about how much I would accomplish this year.  Well, those plans went out the window in about June!!  But I am happy to report I have been very busy this Christmas vacation.  Here is just a little bit of what I have accomplished.  

I am still working on "My Tweets" by Erin Russek.  Before the break I had 7 blocks put together with 4 of them completely sewn and ready.  I had the goal of finishing the other 5 blocks before I had to go back to work.  The only problem is I forgot how long it takes to finish a block, and I am making all 5 at once!  

Here is the run down
*  all the leaves are made (100 of them)
*  all the bird colors are picked out
*  6 birds are ready to be glued to the background fabric
*  3 birds need to be ironed and then glued to the background fabric

Once the birds are completed I will work on one block at a time so I can get the color combinations right.  Then I will move onto the center medallion.  Even though it was not as much as I wanted to accomplish this week it still feels good to get my hands on some fabric.  
Head over to Patchwork Times to see what else is going on! 


  1. Look forward to seeing the completed project, love the colours

  2. You have really gotten a lot done. There's always loads of prep work involved.

  3. Very pretty so far. Enjoy the rest of your break :)

  4. Your work looks beautiful. I love the birds. Can't wait to see your progress.

  5. Applique takes time but is so rewarding! Yours will be fabulous I'm sure.
    Happy quilting in the New Year!

  6. Beautiful work. I appreciate the prep for hand applique but I can't seem to do it.
