Almost Design Wall Monday

Here's what I'm working on currently. Given I haven't sewn in about 5 months, it's been good to be at the sewing machine. This is a small wall hanging from an older Debbie Mumm booklet. I'm sorry it's a little blurry. I had to take down my design wall since we're trying to sell our house and I used my cell phone to take the picture for expedience. I'll get a better photo when it's finished. When I'm done quilting it I'll be adding some yo-yo flowers and a couple of bee buttons. The binding will be the checked fabric used in the first border.

I love the pattern but it's now associated with good-byes. Since I live in Utah, the Beehive state, this wall hanging has been something I've made for friends who quilt when they move away. This is the sixth one I've made in 5 years so I think this is it. When I moved here 6 years ago I was part of a small quilt group associated with the local Air Force base. I'm the last one of the original group left and the group has petered out so I think it's time to retire the pattern. Working on it has reenergized me so I'm looking forward to the next project.

It is a cute pattern but hard to be associated with all those good-byes.

I love mine and have it hanging in my bedroom near my sewing machine. It's one of the nicest gifts I've ever been given. But, why are you selling your house?
