Monday Madness – 09/14/2015

My design wall is still not up… not sure when the hubby will get around to it but … it will be up when I need it. 🙂

I took out Hampton Ridge and worked on it a little bit but I’m bored already with it.  I need to start piecing again.  But before I do  that – here’s the project plan for Hampton Ridge:

  1. Finish the inner top:
    • The inner top has 11 rows (really 9 but the end rows have a corner triangle to attach so I’m counting 11).  I’ve already pieced couples together so now I’ve got 6 pieces.
    • The next step is to get the the 6 pieces down to 3,
    • down to 2,
    • down to 1 inner top.
  2. borders
  3. back
  4. label
  5. quilt

Since I need to do something more than piece rows together, I’m going to work on Celtic Solstice at the same time, maybe get some cutting done for Scrapitude 2016. 🙂

I was able to get some work done on Raining Cats and Dogs!

Raining Cats and Dogs Block #7 - more work 9/13/15

It’s not a lot – just the post of the sign but it’s another step forward. 🙂

  1. Yep, yep, yep! When you’re working huge, highly-involved projects like those, it’s always nice to have a rotation of things to work on so you don’t get bogged down with boredom on them. Raining Cats and Dogs is a real cute one to have going on the side!

  2. I hate trying to work on a project I’m bored with! But sometimes I just power through to get it done so I can move on to something else. I’m not very good at having multiple projects at once – it stresses me out! 🙂 I love that blue quilt in your Instagram feed, it’s absolutely gorgeous!

    Thanks for linking up to MCM!
