Design Wall

I haven't posted any quilt items lately so here's a cropped shot of my design wall to keep some quilty icons up front - nothing new. It's a mix of in-progress items in various stages of completion. I love to look at it!

P.S. I have worked on CCC block #4 a little but not enough to show.

A follow-up from last week's "TODAY" post

She's in and will play ball! It's her official acceptance response and her dream come true! Thanks to so many teachers and coaches, friends and family, and especially to the Lord for guiding each step so far...and many more steps for the future. She has also consistently worked hard to get to today. More hard work to come. She is SOOO happy and excited about the challenge ahead! It's her 110%!!! A year ago we would have never imagined this path, but we are happy too :) Thanks for letting me share the celebration with you. P. S. Tonight - I will work more on CCC block #4! It's still got a long way to go.

TODAY!! (More about that later...)

I have made very little progress on November's Chester County Criswell block. It is not much fun either, I sighed while sewing the other night. My family asked..."Then WHY do you keep sewing it when you aren't having fun with it?" HA! I am determined to do it! To have the experience and dedication to reproduce these 150+ year old blocks. I'm wondering if anyone has some tips that will make it easier. Let me hear from you! These skinny channels are not fun for me. Actually the channels aren't so bad along the middle but the ends are difficult!

I have already traced and cut out the pattern for Dec. block. It looks so much more familiar.
