Design Wall Monday

Well, I totally blew Design Wall Monday this week.  I started this post on Monday, then our internet service at the condo alternated between bad and none.  This morning was no service, but tonight it’s not too bad.

I finished up my January monochromatic color challenge quilt, hosted by Judy Laquidara (yes, I know it’s March, but I actually finished it in February — that’s almost early for me).  I made this quilt mostly from stash/scraps with Terry Atkinson’s Urban Cabin pattern.

Urban Cabin

This quilt is already out of my hands.  We have a lady in the housekeeping department here at our condo who has a family member that has a serious medical condition requiring him to take three-hour trips for medical treatments.  The travel/hotel costs are putting a serious strain on the family, and this is a very YOUNG family with children.  There was a benefit here Sunday to help them out, and since I didn’t have a home in mind for this quilt, donating it for a raffle seemed like a logical thing to do.  It was won by our friend Roxy from Michigan, so it’s fun to know it’s going to a good home!

"Meadow" bag by Melly & Me

I have had this bag pattern for some time, and this seemed like a good project for this week (Melly & Me pattern “Meadow”).  Of course I had extra fabric, so I cut out six of them and have enough for I think six more (when will I learn moderation???)!  Good thing they are fun to make, if a little putzy and time consuming.  The first two are designated as gifts for friends Luana (Iowa) and Barb (Wisconsin), and they are done and delivered.
