Design Wall Monday

Bummer... school is back is session.... I like vacations, and goofing off, and sleeping in until 7am ( my girl dog... she refuses to sleep past then *sigh*)

But on the bright side - I sure got a lot of sewing done....

Remember this block drive? Scrappy Trips ?  I used them as leader/enders while sewing some other things and now.... here you go:




The bottom rows are a little scrunched because I ran out of design wall space - I guess we should have made it a little taller.... oh well 

Did you see the Scrappy Trip Craze going on?  I think we QOV"ers started it with our block drive. I think they saw  how cool these blocks looked and dug in...  Check them out Here  and Here   

We have a new bird - Little Bit wants to name him George. We are pretty positive that he is a young bald eagle. When he opens his wings there is a ton of white. he ( or she) is not as big as Ricky and Fred - but so amazing to watch.


He dove down to the ground and picked up a frozen dead animal and carried it up to the pole - too cool - seriously!!

Those scrappy trips really look great. Glad I was able to make a few for you. Will you be doing another block drive this year? I hope your bird does turn out to be a bald eagle. Just curious -- what program are you using to put your name on your photos? I'd like to but don't want to use photoshop as I don't want to add a lot of steps and I find it confusing.

Woo hooo, red white and blue . . .wonderful. I vote to name the eagle Homer or Ozwald.

Thanks for causing the Scrappy Trips craze that is hitting the nation! LOL It really is a fun quilt! I think George is an awesome name, and if it turns out to be a girl, just call it Georgette!

Love the Scrappy Trip! It all blends together to make a beautiful quilt:)

Love the scrappy trips. Too bad about having to go back to school and not as much time to sew. It looks like a lot of fun to watch your eagle. It will be to find out if it is a bald eagle. We have several around and they are sure big.

Very pretty. I'm trying to figure out how I got anything made without leaders and enders!

love the scrappy trips and I think you are right about the craze out there about it!! Nice pic of the bird. There are eagles that live near the lake and I got to see it dive and catch a fish. Such a beautiful site.

Scrappy trips look awesome. Silly girl "sleeping in" until 7? Yikes, that's not sleeping in ;)

This is wonderful! I just "discovered" you last month, so this is the first I've seen of this great block. Thanks for sharing!
