Design Wall Monday, November 15, 2010

The week that Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery project "Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll" Clue #1 is to be released is upon us.  Can hardly wait to get going on Friday cutting the pieces and sewing the first of eight clues (as I recall) together for another great design.  I've been busy getting ready for this having selected all the patterns, how Kerry and I will tackle the project since we'll be splitting the big quilt in to two separate quilts, and finally having my sewing room ready.  Now the last thing I think I need is to spin up a bunch of bobbins!  I'm ready to rock and roll with Kotton!

On my wall today is a surprise Christmas gift for a coworker and friend, Adel.  She's crazy about Betty Boop I found out by chance last year and during the 2009 holiday season I found a good scrappy tree skirt that would do just perfect for all the Betty Boop scraps I had left over from a quilt project made for Rita (one of my Sister-In-Laws).  Turns out I don't need to tackle the quilting, Kerry has offered to do it for me and I'm ever so happy she did.  I give it to her tonight, YIPPEE!  If you know Adel make sure you keep this a surprise!

Tonight is Canyon Quilt Guild November Meeting where we have our annual holiday potluck and challenge.  This year's challenge is to make an apron.  I didn't have time to participate this year but I've done so in previous years and it has been lots of fun.  So many unique wild and crazy projects come from these challenges where there's usually three categories to vote for your favorite with prizes.

I will be working steady on my last 2010 UFO the rest of the week with a pause on Friday for Clue #1 completion then back to the UFO whose deadline is November 30th EEK!

Tree skirt really turned out great. I like the scrappy trees. You will get your UFO done, if I know you. So don't worry about that. I have seen you make a quilt top in a day.

You sure made that tree skirt quickly, very cute. Was it complicated to make? Have fun at your guild meeeting, I love show and tell the best.

That truely is a different tree skirt - love it! And you don't have to quilt it - yahooooo. Will be doing Bonnie's mystery as well, but probably with a later start. Happy sewing!

And who doesn't need a Betty Boop tree skirt. I am sure she will love it.

Sure like the way you got Betty's face in so many squares, really neat.
