Design Wall Monday - Many Projects

I am excited!  Today at lunch, I took a little field trip from my office.  I put on my sneakers and caught the free green downtown bus to the George R Brown Convention center.  I thought that my family vacation would cause me to miss the International Quilt Festival this year, but the trip was delayed.  Now I can go to the show - yeah!
Since I had such a great time in my Quiltcon classes, I decided that I would try and get a class at the festival.  I missed the deadline to register online, so I went in person today to sign-up.  There were very few modern classes offered, but I chose "Fifty Shades of Groovy".  Now I am off to search my stash for supplies.  I need bold fabrics that look good with grays.
Until the class on Saturday, I do have other projects on-going.
I started some scrappy Dresden's.
I have my Broken Herringbone basted as part of the MSBHQAL.  Honestly, I haven't found the mojo to get the quilting started.
Penny Patch Quilt-Along
I have pulled my fabrics for the Penny Patch QAL at Stitched in Color (which I believe starts this week).
Le Challenge

And, I started thinking about this month's Le Challenge theme of "stripes".  I thought this would be simple, but I have very few stripes in my stash.  Maybe, I'll just have to find some at the Quilt Festival this weekend.
Linking today to Design Wall Monday.


  1. I'm very envious! Have a great time :)
    I love your dresden and your herringbone looks fab!

  2. Make sure you link your MSBHQAL up! Prizes to be won! Love how it is looking, and I hear you about being motivated to quilt. You definitely have to be in the mood!

  3. Your dresden is so pretty. I'm participating in The Pillow Talk Swap and I'm going to do an aqua and red dresden...
