A Speck of Fall on Design Wall Monday

Now where was I.... oh yeah I had a change of plans for what quilt to make my son and then I had another change of plans when I just vegged out most of Friday and Saturday because I didn't feel well. So. when Sunday dawned (at least I assume it did but I don't think I've ever willingly witnessed the event) I had new plans. I wanted to make a small quilt - just the top - for a Sunday project. Again, life stepped in and changed that plan. I did decide on a pattern, one of Carrie's newest Little Bites, Speck. Go check it out here. Isn't it adorable?

I rummaged through all my charm packs, and decided that I just couldn't cut into any of them, since they were all pairs and someday I might want both to make a Schnibble. However, a pile of Fall fabrics was still sitting on my cutting table from my Butterscotch Scrap Jar Stars, and I am still longing for Fall to begin, so I cut some 2 1/4" squares from the selection on hand.

Ta dah!!!


I got 4 cute cute cute little blocks made. They each measure 4" and they are all sitting on one of my little design mats that measures 10" square. Now I do have plans for bunch more of these but life intruded again yesterday, and changed my plans to the point that I only had a tiny bit of time to sew. But even 4 little blocks is better than nothing.

I do have plans today for more sewing but considering how poorly my recent plans have worked out I probably should plan not to sew at all - reverse psychology - do you think it works on life?? Yeah I didn't think so either.

Hope you having a lovely Labor Day that only involves labor you want to do!
Happy stitching-
carol fun

  1. I'm glad to hear that you kicked back for a moment - you've been traveling at Mach 1 lately. Plans? Heh, why bother? :) I am smitten with Carrie's new patterns. I am SO ready for some small projects. Carrie to the rescue! And Speck is the first one on my list - your rendition is gorgeous.

  2. Sometimes it just isn't worth the effort to make plans. Better to relax and enjoy the ride.

  5. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. I think you need a little dose of sewing time and your Speck blocks may have been THE dose.

  7. Cute blocks. They look bigger in the photo, but your mat ruler helps to put them in perspective. I like fall colors too -- put I'm not quite ready for Fall to actually be here, yet!

  8. Such cute blocks. I have a huge collection of Halloween fabric. Maybe I should consider a small quilt. You are a good inspiration.

  9. I agree with many of the other posters...you have been going a hundred miles an hour lately. It's good for you to take a break and rest. :) I hope you are feeling better. We have a touch of something going around here too. No fun in the heat, is it? Take care and try to take it easy. ;)
