Design wall Feb. 28, 2011

Here's the quilt top with the yellow border on it. Thanks to all that commented last week and gave their opinion. My new class assignment I have 3 weeks to accomplish, so next week you will see the beginning of the 5th border; a row of stars. I'm considering making this quilt rectangular with a row of pinwheels at the top and bottom then the stars.
This is what I've been carrying in my purse as I look around for more fabric to put in this quilt. I found that I had none of that strange green that is with the roses in the yellow fabric. Now I have 1 here and 2 more fat quarters in the laundry.
Here's the back so you can see the complicated process I went through to construct my card.
I started with 1 3x5 card and it was not long enough so I added another. It hangs out in an used legal sized window envelope in my purse.
When I finish this quilt this will go in my notebook with my notes and a photo of the quilt.

Do you want to see what others have on their design wall? You do? Then go over to Judy's blog for a list of links.

We started doing our family scripture reading in the morning; that's 5:15 A.M. With an early start so far today I've trimmed a quilt and sewn the binding around it, ready to do the hand work. Now I have paper to buy for the school's lobby board for the play Andrew is in and another metronome for my son; he must have an 'electric' personality since metronomes do not last very long around him... this is the 5th in 4 years. Then lunch with a few friends and an hour exercise class. Then dinner....I won't be hungry but I bet the boys will want some food. Their favorite on this new diet is lentil soup; how many times a week can I get away with fixing that?
