This is my first design wall Monday. I visited Erin at One Piece at a Time and decided that maybe this is something I would like to do. On my design wall or I should say design floor is this quilt I'm making for my grandson. He is due in May. The pattern is Hooterville by Brandywine Designs and the fabric is Bright Quilter's Candy from Connecting Threads. If you have seen this pattern before you will notice that I have substituted the colorful squares with the center dot for the quarter square triangle blocks in the pattern. I can make quarter square triangles but I hate to and I'm really liking the dotted squares. I hope to get the machine applique finished today.

Now on to other things. In my last post I was hoping to finish three blocks for a block of the month group I belong to. I only finished one before other obligations intervened. Purple is not a color I'm terribly comfortable with but I think this block looks pretty and sometimes even I go outside of my comfort zone. If you would like to see more about this eBOM, please see the post just before this one.
I was a lucky winner at One Piece at a Time this week and won a Quilt in a Day Flying Geese Ruler. Thank you so much Erin! I'm so looking forward to trying this ruler.
