In my March 12, 2018 post, “New Motto”, I shared with you my efforts to tame my scrap bin by cutting all my scraps into 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 inch squares. Since I’m now super prepared and organized, I started a new design with my 1.5 inch squares. Yes, it appears that all is well with my design wall BUT (cue drum roll….)
Guess who decided to stick her nose onto my design wall and sniff the fabric? Yes, it’s true, my trusted sewing gal pal, Norma, gave my design a real nose job! Scraps were a flyin’ everywhere!
Note to self: Don’t place a quilt design at Norma’s nose level! How could I get mad at this face?? I couldn’t…I just put my design back together and moved on!
Other projects in progress: I’m tacking down the binding of my Heartland Modern quilt that Ms. SJ quilted for me. I like what she did with the quilting design. You can download this pattern by clicking on the link at right: Heartland Modern 01 10 18
I finished quilting my USA panel. Now I have to turn it into a pillow cover. This shouldn’t take too long to assemble.
I have another USA map panel to quilt. Since it’s still cold out and I can’t do too much gardening, I’d like to get this quilted soon!
I hope your March quilting efforts are productive…and watch out for those “Surprise Nose Jobs” from furry companions!!!!!

Awesome post title! Well Norma just needs her adorable nose kissed! I would forgive her if she did a “nose job” on my layout – ha! I love the USA panels! Your quilting looks wonderful on the heart quilt and on the USA quilt!
Thanks, Tierney! Norma does get her nose kissed quite a lot…as does Sadie Sue!
Norma is such a cutie!
Thanks, she’s my girl!
Oh Norma! You are silly!
Your Heart quilt is beautiful. I really like the US map panels too.
I’ve been thinking hard about doing the same with my scraps…congrats on being organized despite your (adorable) helper.
My “helper” is always by my side! At least I’m organized for now! Ask me about this organization next month!
