Did I Jinx Myself?

Words of Love on my Design WallI probably shouldn't have referred to this as my perennial project at the beginning of the month–perhaps it was a self-fulling prophecy, because today my design wall looks like this.  I hang y head in shame as I link up with Design Wall Monday on the Patchwork Times.

Life and other distractions have been in my way.

It seems unlikely that it will become a lovely finish by the end of February, but stranger things have happened . . .

In the meantime, Oscar, the cats and I had a productive evening.  I added hanging sleeves to three quilts, including this one.

Carolina Byways

Lightweight yardstick as hanger Begun in a workshop in North Carolina in the Spring of 2007, finished a couple years ago in Dallas, Texas where I quilted and bound it.  Last night I added a hanging sleeve so it can hang in my guest bathroom ... today, I realized I never took a photo of the finished quilt.

The pattern is Split Nine-Patch. It was a great way to use a lot of scraps.

It's approximately 36 inches square which means a lightweight promotional yardstick makes a perfect hanging rod.

It'a beautiful quilt and reminds my of mountains in NC. So glad you are using your "Bernina Free" time to get some projects completed.
