Design Wall Monday - 1/20/14

I'm happy to report that I had a great Birthday Weekend which ended yesterday by lazing on the couch with several furry couch potatoes watching Season 1 of Downton Abbey. Awesome show so I can only hope that Season 2 comes in to the library sooner rather than later.

I've updated Friday's post to show the party favors I made - pieced hexie mugrugs backed with the wools I showed on Friday! The center hexies are all cakes and ice creams which I thought was perfect for a birthday party!


Speaking of Friday's Post ... did you enter either of the linky parties? I hope so because there are giveaways!! Last day to enter is this Thursday...

Somehow we missed catching Nadine.
My birthday party was at the LQS on Saturday. I invited several friends, some new to quilting and some were old hands. Each was asked to bring a tea party food item (will share the food tomorrow) and their sewing machines. At the store they each purchased a small kit which would make 2 quilt blocks.

Looks like we have a new Quality Control Officer!
At the end of the party, they kept 1 block and I gave them directions to make a table runner or 2 different quilt designs depending on how many more blocks they wanted to make. 

The other block was signed with a permanent pen and given to me for my birthday! I'm so excited to have a quilt that my friends helped me make. 

Looks like we also have a streaker!
 I didn't bring the picture of the quilt design I am going to use so maybe that will be another post this week - I think all y'all will be tired of my party by weeks end! I will warn you that it has hexies in it, but again, all y'all knew that would happen!

No, I didn't make any of the new pieced hexies yet. I've read thru the book at least 3 times so far but haven't been able to settle on a "first" design. I'll pick one soon enough =^..^=

Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday! BTW not only do you have a streaker in the last pic but you also have a contortionist in the background!

Aw, Happy Birthday. What a great way to celebrate! I hope you can settle on a design for your cute little hexies soon--I can't wait to see what they turn into.
