    What's on your design board right now?

    I am working on a Quilt of Valor using the tumbling block pattern. I'm hoping before the end of the night that I will have at least half of it done. Then tomorrow I will do the next half so it is ready to get sandwiched on Friday...what does it all mean....I need to get moving...lol

    Lets see pictures of what is on your design board. Here is mine:

    This is going to be very nice. I don't have anything on my design wall at the moment. I have one waiting on boarders and another waiting on the backing. Got side track on life stuff. Shopping, Doctor, cleaning, laundry. You know all those boring things.

    May the surgery go well for you and a speedy recovery. The TBs is really cool.

    compliments to the double irish chain. Love this. Great job.
    peace

    Nothing on my design wall at present as I'm piecing backings for the longarm-er.

    I need to put something up there to inspire me!

    I have a denim blue jeans rug started, an art quilt that I think I am ready to start beading, but not sure, orphan blocks I am playing with to see if I can get a quilt out of them, and I am still working on valentines and St Pat's Day cards. The valentine is one I made for my younger daughter. The pin represents her, the two red hearts represent her two older boys, and the crystal one is her youngest son who is waiting for us in heaven.

    Pollyjvan9, I think that little project for your daughter is lovely. I also think the way you displayed it is very clever. Did you use some kind of thick interfacing for it? I'm sorry to hear of your family's loss.

    lots2do - thank you for your kind remarks. I started making quilted postcards last year and make at least a few for each holiday. I think the stabelizer in the card is called Timtex. I bought it at Hancocks. It is very stiff. I sew my design onto the Timtex, do all the decorative stitching before adding the white or offwhite backing with glue or stitching or binding around the outside. Then I address and add message. And last, I add any beads, buttons or whatever. Also, thanks for the condolences, It happened 5 years ago, on his 6th birthday, but it is still such a bad time of year for all of our family.

    I have just finished designing a braided quilt. Now to take it to a copy place to enlarge it for me to be able to have the pieces large enogh to stitch it together. It's actually going to be a braided quilt applique. This will be a long process for sure but I am up to the challange.

    You're welcome and thanks for the info. I'm going to have to try that out.
