Miscellany OR If I Had a Design Wall I Would Have a Lot of Stuff On It

I've made 4 more Flowering Snowball blocks for my Cherry Pie quilt that will maybe use up my stash of cherry fabrics???????????????

And, also on the fruity front...I made some sets of 6 inch apples of 30s reproduction fabrics for swapping with the 30sFabricQuilting Yahoo Group.  I made 5 apples of each fabric...one for me to keep and 4 for swapping. 

I MIGHT combine the apples from the swap with some 9 patches we swapped last year. 

30sFabricQuilting Yahoo Group also has a Birthday club. Everyone lists a block and choice of colors and in their birthday month they receive their desired block from each Birthday Club member.  The July birthday lady wanted a 12 inch mini bow tie block with WOW background and mixed colors. The September lady wanted the same thing and the December lady wanted the same block but all in pink fabrics on Kona Snow.  So, while I was cutting I got all 3 blocks made. 

The block this month at Block Lotto is Monochrome Spokes. I made 9 but two of them turned out a little wonky for some reason...(I think I cut the background fabric too small)...but that's okay...I'll probably put them to use in a charity quilt for kids. So, anyway...7 blocks for Block Lotto. 

Heartstrings Quilt Project is having a Red,White,Blue String Block challenge this month. I think the blocks sent in and made into quilts will go toward veterans entering hospice.  I only got 6 blocks this weekend and I want to make at least 48 - enough for an entire quilt.  These blocks were made from some strings I had left over from other QOV quilts.   


I just remembered I haven't declared a goal this month of A Lovely Year of Finishes so since I sewed these 99- 6 inch pink Thrifty Blocks together over the weekend I'm making my goal to at least get this top completed.  And if the entire quilt gets finished that's an extra bonus.  This has been a UFO for far too long. 

So, if I had a Design Wall now you know what would be on my Design Wall.

You are not a lone I have no design wall either! Everything is beautiful and just lay it on the floor or the bed. Good luck with your pink quilt this month!
