Design Wall Monday

This coming weekend I am hosting a 4 day retreat here at my house for my Friday Quilting friends. DH is going out of town for 4 days and we are going to sew every day he is gone. In getting ready, I am prepping several projects to work on then.

1. A new romper for dgd, Paige, using this fabric and pattern.
    Preparation to do: cut out all pieces - Done

2. Batik log cabin - add border, quilt and bind
    Preparation - cut out border, make backing and binding  Edit - Done (Wednesday afternoon)

3. Yellow taxi cab - bind - this is actually on the long arm and I expect to have it quilted by the retreat so I will be able to sit and stitch the binding when my back needs a break from sitting at the machine.
    Preparation - quilt top, make binding, attach binding. Edit - Done (Monday afternoon)

4. Indigo tote bag
    Preparation - cut out all pieces Edit - Done - (Tuesday afternoon)

5. Mini log cabin block
    Preparation - none - Done :)

6. Nine patches for Patrick's college quilt
    Preparation - draft pattern, cut strips

Go see what is on other design walls at Patchwork Times

Sounds like a fun time, you must have lots of room for sewing.

Sounds like you will have lots to do. I love the batik log cabin and the yellow taxi cab quilts, very stunning.

How lucky your little grandbaby is. That is great fabric for those rompers.

I just love the log cabin-so great and bright with the batiks. I'm looking forward to seeing it completed.

Those log cabin blocks look familiar! I love the yellow 4-patches on point. I need to do something like that with my scraps!
