Design Wall Monday – Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!!!

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our soldiers and veterans and their families!  It is certainly never enough for your sacrifice and service to this wonderful country of ours.  May you be showered with honor, respect and lots of love this day =^..^=

As for my design wall, it’s beginning to look like a Quilter lives here!!! 

My sweet husband hung my Quilts in Progress quilt up yesterday, and I am just in LOVE!!!  (Well, yes, I'm in love with HIM too, but I was talking about the quilt :*D)  It is so perfect up there, and I fall in love again every time I step into the room :*)  Thanks sweetie!

He looks like a really nice guy, doesn’t he?  That’s because he IS!  Now the cat on the other hand, that’s a different story LOL!!!!  But she sure does love her daddy =^..^=

I have so many projects in process!!!  Does that ever happen to you?  I've simply GOT to get some of them done and out of my way.  Here are the ones I managed to work on this past week.

Last night I finished the top for my June Calendar Quilt Boy-o-boy is it cute!!! 

The big, black ants kind of take over, but even though I'm not fond of insects in any form, I really love this quilt for a whimsical touch of summer!  

Do you see why I am always on the hunt for the perfect greens?
All of these olive colors came from my fat quarter stash!  
This will be even cuter when the applique is stitched down and it is quilted.  Hopefully I’ll get that done this week.  This is one of my NewFO Challenge quilts for May =^..^=

Here are the Churn Dash Star blocks I have done so far for my UFO from Runaway Retreat last September - Girls Just Want to Have Fun (GJWTHF)…. 

I completed these at Red Rooster last week.  This is a piecing intensive quilt, so I’m really happy to have this much of it done.  I only need to finish five more of these blocks and then 24 of the alternate block which is much, much simpler.  I can see a glimmer of hope of finishing this one soon :*)

Here are some of my favorites of these blocks…

No progress on Vintage Valentine last week because of retreat, but I will start working on that again in a few days, so stay posted for progress!

That’s it for me – how about you?  Share what’s on your Design Wall at PatchworkTimes!

Hugs & Blessings!

  1. Teresa, I don't know how, but I wasn't paying attention and missed several of your last posts (maybe I just felt overwhelmed when my computer was gone for a week at the computer DR!) So, I'm catching up on your posts - such lovely projects!! The ants/watermelon are perfect!!! Love those greens! (I'm having a giveaway of green fat quarters, and today is the last day - I'll draw this evening, so if you want a chance it is still open!)
    But my most favorite of all time is stars and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, your churn dash stars!! In fact I love them set without the chain blocks - so I've got another project in store!!!! Just one question - what size are the finished churn dash star blocks?

    Your blog always makes me smile!!
