I am not one of those quilters blesssed with a large sewing room complete with a design wall. I am a simple farm girl, in my simple 1900 farm house, trying to make the most of what I have. Typically, I use my dining room floor as my design wall (floor) and for laying out my quilts…..but that has all changed since the remodeling project.
It is now covered in rugs and I have no where to lay out quilt blocks. We NEVER use the front door so it made a perfect area to lay out quilts. Now the front door is the only way to get into the house so….no design wall..no laying out blocks.
That doesn’t mean I am not sewing! Here are my blocks for the Between Charming Friends Quilt a Long.
Luckily it’s a scrap quilt, so I can sew the pieces together randomly without actually laying them out. I have a couple other baskets of quilt blocks ready for the remodeling project to be over so there’s a design wall (floor) again.
…speaking of the remodeling project….we are now two days of back hoe and plumber over budget. We are trying to unclog a drain that has been clogged for years. Here’s hoping today is the day that can get fixed…and so goes my remodeling saga.
