Design Wall Monday November 26, 2012

It was a lovely Thanksgiving weekend--since I wasn't cooking much or hosting, I had lots of time to sew and there are almost no leftovers in the refrigerator.

I made these 2 little doll-size quilts as gifts:

These 4 patches are my "leader-ender" projects so I have many of those.
12 Days of Christmas, pattern from Temecula Quilt Company
Then I got to working on the Just Takes 2 Red and White blocks--I'm a bit behind.  I did the easy ones and now have to get to those more difficult ones:

Also made a Grandmother's Choice block--one more of those and I'll be caught up on that project too.

We went to see "Lincoln" on Friday--excellent movie!  The acting was terrific and the politics was interesting--it's the story of how the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, was passed by the House of Representatives.  As I watched it, I was reminded how young our country was in 1864--less than 100 years old, democracy still considered a "test", perhaps.  It's worth the time to see this one.

Be sure to check out Judy L's design wall blog to see what other's are doing. 

Have a good week and let's quilt!



  1. They all look great Barbara! I wish I had been able to keep up with Just Takes 2. I've been collecting the patterns just in case I get back to it.

    1. Thanks, Jean. I knew if I didn't keep up, I would never make it so I've pushed to keep up.

  2. Barbara, both your minis are darling -- but the Twelve Days of Christmas quilt is *so* sweet!!! I saved that one as they put the patterns out, but I've never gotten around to making it! :)
