Progress--Color Quilt

Slowly making progress.  I think I need a bigger design wall.  Designing this quilt is taking quite a while.  Every time I walk into the room, I see squares that aren't quite right and keep moving things around.  I have some new holes to fill.  I'll have to pull a few fabrics from my stash to fill these.  I also need to find some darker pinks to better blend the pinks into the reds.  I'm loving it so far.  It's going to be well worth the effort.


It's been a day of the sickies around here.  Miss C has been sick and droopy all weekend.  She even passed up chocolate cake on Sunday and went to lay on the couch instead.  Today is looking a bit better, but the kiddos all spent quite a bit of time vegging on the couch watching Dora this morning.  I think the ibuprofen I gave her earlier is kicking in.  She's off the couch and, she and her sister are currently having a tea party.  She keeps calling her sister "young lady" in a wacky voice.  She is also calling me "young lady mama" and told me I look lovely today--a wonderful compliment considering I didn't even bother putting on makeup this morning.

The one and only good thing about sick kiddos is having a bit of downtime while they get their couch time.  I cut fabric this morning for my Brrr quilt!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it comes together just how I picture it in my head.  I might start sewing it tonight unless I decide sleep is a priority.

  1. That wall of squares would be my downfall - I would never be able to stop rearranging! It's looking great though - can't wait to see it as it progresses :)

  2. I love all your little squares. I have a box of 2 1/2" squares. I need a 'design wall as big as yours, I don't think my hubby would take to kindly to me taking one of our bedroom or living room walls to 'design' on. lol
