Design Floor Monday

This is my favorite day of the week for blog browsing, but I don't get much done if I do too much of it! I've already found a new fun applique quilt at Ewesquilting.com that I want to do. Hope my printer gets hooked up soon. Our network is being contrary. Anyway, here is what has been going on.

This row of Delectable Mountains is the first row in the quilt along that has a button on the right.  I accidentally made double what I needed.  Is this a sign for two quilts or more for the orphan blocks?
I finished this block of Comfort and Joy on the 31st.  Only 4 of us posted on the page.  I am disappointed because I love to see what fabric everyone chooses!
Yesterday I did the flag at the bottom, and today I hope to work on the snowman.  I've decided that I really enjoy these one-of-a-kind projects.  I really don't enjoy doing the same thing over and over.
One of my Feb. goals is to finish this top.  It's all sewn together, but needs 3 borders to be complete.  This was a mystery called "The Squares In the Middle"  and I think it was by Katedid.  I'm sorry, but I can't remember the spelling and don't want to walk back downstairs.  (Knees!!!)  My daughter and I worked on this one day mystery, but it took longer than one day for us.  She cut  and I sewed and then she pressed.  It could have been more than one day because she had 3 kids under 5!!  This is supposed to be the throw quilt in her living room.  I'd like to get it finished this winter.
Back to seeing what you have been doing!  Happy quilting!

Great Week! I have a Delectable Mountain on my quilting frame right now -- love this pattern. The quilt you have at the bottom is especially awesome.

I've made that Delectable Mountain quilt twice -- it's a whole lot of fun.

LOVE the house block!
