Design Wall Monday

I put my applique blocks on my wall to keep me motivated to finish them. They are from Sue Garman's Bouquets for a New Day pattern. The pattern was a free block of the month for The Quilt Show members. I am still plugging away.
The star blocks are from Kim Diehl's book Simple Traditions. The pattern is Feathered Stars.
Yesterday I cut the pieces for a simple log cabin lap quilt for my grandson. I am sewing that on the featherweight. Granddaughters quilt is being machine quilted on the Singer. I must be feeling real ambitious today!
If you want to see what some other fantastic quilters are doing head over to Judy's blog Patchwork Times ! If you have something interesting on your design wall put your name there too. We all love to see what everyone is working on.
There is also some sock knitting going on in the evening. The pattern is a simple twisted cable. K2,P2 for 3 rows then K2tog don't drop the stitches, K the first stitch then drop both. Just interesting enough without having to pay real close attention.
Now I am off to the dumb tire store to order a tire for my truck. Is there a reason the Mr couldn't have gone himself. Darn him cutting into my sewing time! Just kidding, he works very hard trucking down the road all week.

The flower blocks are wow-worthy! And so are your stars. Someday I may return to knitting, there are so many socks on blogland to admire!

YOur applique looks very challenging, yours are beautiful. I, too, keep my applique blocks on the DW so I can remember that I still have more to do. ;-)
