I know it looks like I have a white spot on my purple line. I freaked out when I saw it in the picture, thinking I had messed up. It's actually a white chair on a purple background from Tufted Tweets. I don't think I'll use that fabric again on here. The seam allowance cuts away too much of the background.
I decided to enlarge my "design wall" just a bit. It's really nothing fancy, but it's about all I can do. This is my little sewing corner of the family room. I share it with the dog. I seriously considered getting rid of her large kennel and demoting her to the small travel kennel, but I think it would be pretty tight quarters. I ended up pulling some batting scraps out of my basket and just taping them to the wall. It works just fine. I would love to have an official design wall like Heather from ala mode, but I just don't have the space to put it. I rehung my little design board on the wall above the kennel for additional projects.
I am definitely getting a bit burned out on this quilt. Too many 2" squares. I'm still planning to keep up with the group if I can, but I have two new projects I plan to start in the next few days. I have a quilt in my head inspired by this one on Film in the Fridge. I also want to try a pillow using the quilt-as-you-go method. I'm thinking of doing one to match my Raspberry Citrus Confetti quilt. I have been interested in this method for a while and was inspired to give it a try because of Heather's quilt-along, but I'm not convinced yet about doing it as a whole quilt. I'll see how it goes with the pillow. I also have some fabulous Kona solids on their way to start a City Quilts inspired quilt that I am so excited to start. Although, I think UPS is shipping my box here on horseback. It won't be here for an entire week!
I was perusing Flickr last night because I'm pretty much addicted now. I came across a picture of a quilt that looked quite familiar. Lisa from Shiner's View made a quilt using the same Oh Fransson pattern that I did for our bedroom quilt. She said that she was inspired by my quilt! I was so flattered. It just made my day. I love hers, especially the colors she chose.
Finally, thanks to Linda from Stray Stitches for nominating me for her Sunshine Award on her blog. She said she looks forward to my blog and that makes me happy. Check out her blog. She is a great quilter who is always doing something new despite the fact that she suffers from ALS. She is also sponsoring a giveaway right now through Monday.
