Design Wall Monday

Wow!  I feel like I got a lot of sewing done this week but when I look back at the pictures I don't see much.  But here's what I've been working on.  First up is the Texas Roadtrip QAL.  I did the El Paso block (over to the left representing the railroad), the block for Midland/Odessa (the oil rig), and the piecing for the third quadrant.

I was so excited that we are about done with the third quadrant and about to start the fourth and final quadrant.  But just like Texas, that quadrant is huge and will take the entire month of July!!  But I'm super excited to get to my part of the state.

Next up are last week's and this week's blocks for the Austen Family Album. This one is from this week and it went together so quickly.

And here's the one from last week.  I'm just loving these 30's prints.  We are finished with week 13 out of 36 weeks so 1/3 of the way there.  I'm really thinking of using a nice yellow to set them.  We'll see when I get it laid out.

And finally I finished up the July blocks for the Supernova Friendship Block Swap.  Here are my first two blocks together.  I haven't gotten mine from my swap partner yet but they'll get here soon and we'll see how they all work together!

So that's all I've been up to this week!  What are you working on???

Linking up to Patchwork Times and Freshly Pieced.



  1. You are a busy girl! I love your super-nova blocks, especially the grey background. And...thanks for introducing me to the Jane Austen quilt QAL last week. I went to the site and looked at many of the pages in the blog.

  2. I am not a Texas person, but that project is awesome. :D It took me a moment to notice that the design is shaped like the state.

  3. Your blocks and workmanship are beautiful!
