Monday Morning Report....

After making a little miscalculation I have now figured it out and resewn the blocks I goofed up on.  So far .... So good.
I'm a little concerned that I won't have enough strips to make this quilt as large as I'd like.  I'm shooting for a Full size if I can squeeze it out.  I may have to resort to slap'in a border on it to get to that size.
 This is what I have so far.  And this is all that I can put on my design wall and if I can make it full size I'll have to lay out the last column somewhere else.  And of course, I'll do a bit of shifting blocks around after I have them all made.

I'll be linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday post so let's go check out what some of the other quilters have been working on.  
..... Have a great day. And stitch happy!

New quilt in the works....

I've finally chosen my  next project.  I had two pkg's of  'Taxi Cab Chic Collection' from Keepsake Quilting with twenty 2½" strips in each package.  LOVE the yellow & black combo!

I wasn't sure what I wanted to make but I knew I Didn't want anything too complicated .... just easy peasy and quick.   Somewhere along the blogosphere I kinda remembered seeing a simple box & rail quilt but didn't know where or by who .... so I went to EQ and did my thing and I'm pretty happy with what I came up with.    

Now to get the sewing finished.

And for now..... Have a great day. And stitch happy!
