Design Wall Monday 9/22/14

I got so much done last week! My design wall is getting pretty full.  I need to take 5 minutes and hang the other one up so I have room to expand.

I'm up to 14 Union Jack blocks.  After seeing them all on the wall, I think I overestimated how many blocks I need to make.  I think that 4 columns of 7 blocks will make it big enough.  Especially since Cassidy wants sashing in between the blocks.  Here's a look at the blocks I got done last week:

And here is how you know it's late and you really need to go to bed.
So Saturday morning, I ripped and reassembled and finished up four more:
Had a football game Saturday night so didn't quite finish up my sewing machine blocks until yesterday.  But look how cute they are!  I really cannot wait to see where this design is going. 
The one with the yellow spool of thread is the one I'm keeping and I'm swapping the one with the blue thread.  For those of you that are just seeing this, it is part of a mystery swap quilt along being hosted over at Dreamworthy Quilts by Deanna.  It's called the Quilter's Garden BOM.  It's not too late to join in!  I also finished up this one last night and it's one I'm keeping:
I need to make one more sewing machine and I'll be done with that for this month.  What are y'all working on?  Linking up with Patchwork Times and Quilt Story.
