Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall


This past week I’ve spent time marking Deadline III, so there are no pictures.  However, this weekend was String Fling in Manhattan, Kansas. Over 650 5th – 9th grader  string players.  This is the 8th/9th grade orchestra that Sydney played in.

I’m not sure what I was thinking, I didn’t bring my camera, so today’s photos are off my camera.

While she was at practise, I spent the weekend trimming the rail fence blocks.


I set up a cutting station.


The bed became the design wall.  Half the blocks are trimmed.


I started reading Publish Your Patterns! by Nancy Restuccia.  The link will take you to Amazon – no affiliation.  Before Christmas I checked the book out from the library. Things were crazy and I didn’t open it until the day before I had to take it back (after the 2nd renewal!)   What I saw in those few minutes made me want to buy my own copy to read at leisure.

And I did work on one of my own projects.  I grabbed my redwork.


Check out the links over at Patchwork Times to see what others are working on.


One Thought on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. Dedication … dragging stuff to Manhattan. I remember many a day sitting in concert halls — some with great student performers and some with beginning string players. DD ended up majoring in french horn in college, went on to get her Masters and her doctorate and now works for the Univ. of Maryland in the school of music. The horn doesn’t come out all that much with 2 young ones at home. But it was one of the best uses of her time as a kid and she loved it. Those red, black? and white blocks look great.
