Monday Design Wall

Baby, its cold outside!  The wind is blowing about 25 miles an hour with light fluffy snow and about 25 degrees outside.  We are tucked inside for the day.  First, I had some very ripe bananas that I needed to make into banana  bread. Done!

Second, my husband starts his two weeks of night shift tonight.  (He got called off for last night and we watched the Super Bowl.)  The guys on his shift like treats so before Christmas I sent my husband's favorite bar cookie, butter chewies.  The guys loved them.  So I wanted to send a treat with him tonight and had all the ingredients for butter chewies on hand.  They make the house smell so good.

This weekend I was able to spend a day and a half at a small quilt retreat at our church.
This is a picture of part of the group of ladies who attended.

We had a little show and tell by Cathy, see her peeking out from behind the top.  She will be quilting this quilt for a friend.
Sylvia made this on Saturday and I brought it home to quilt for her mother-in-law. 
Corry has been on a mission to finish UFOs.  This windmill quilt is full of signatures and she figures she started it around 2009.  It is king size and now ready to be quilted! 
She also brought this Thimbleberries quilt and found out the top was finished.  So she pieced the backing out of the leftover fabrics.
Last, but not least is my project.  This is a panel from our trip to Shipshewana, IN this past summer. My friend, Kathy O and I are planning this quilt and working on the design and blocks together.
I apologize for the quality of the picture (its a picture of a picture) as didn't take a picture before packing up to go home.  I received the picture from Cathy K.
This quilt will be lap size when we are finished.
Thank you to Corry for all the planning and thank you for all the fun "quilty sisters".
Now that I am finished with writing the blog, the sun is shining!  What's on your design wall?
