Design Wall Monday

My week's goals kept changing as the days passed.  Then, on Friday it was decided that Easter dinner would be at my home.  That change completely reorganized my weekend into shopping and cooking the big meal.

I did finished Craps and Women of Influence this week.  You can click the titles to see them in their separate posts.  I have two more quilts needing binding sewn down by hand and another I pin basted in preparation for machine quilting. 

On my design wall is two (actually three) quilts I started.  The first photo is cuttings from 2 bento box tops that the Scrap Quilting Club is working on for April.  The participants have a choice of making blocks in all batiks or any scraps.  We will swap quarters at this month's meeting.

The second photo is the start of my "merry go round" quilt.  I just couldn't resist starting this.  I'm using precut strips in blue, red, white, gold yellow, and purples.  The jury is still out as to whether it will work or not.  I'm basically trying to get rid of the "old" fashion type strips in my collection.  I'll throw in a few new ones and a zinger or two to spice things up a bit.
