What's On Your Design Wall?

I'm not one of those sewers who can work on one project at a time.  I am sure it has something to do with having the attention span of a gnat . . . . but I'm happier working on several things at once.  And I LOVE STARTING PROJECTS - it's the finishing I have trouble with!  Why does everything need a binding anyway????

This is my design wall.  You'll see I have three projects on it.  One you can barely see - it's a top secret project for a friend so I can't show you the whole thing or talk about it for that matter!  So consider the top right of the picture a teaser.  LOL

The one on the right is a redwork baby quilt that I'm working on the pattern.  I want the top done for the show this coming weekend and have two blocks to go . . . . hurry, hurry, hurry.  I hope no one looks too closely at the stitching!

The bottom one  is a project that I'd also like to have done for Friday - we work best under pressure.  I need 12 more blocks.  Ok, that's not going to happen by Friday but I can dream.   I'll be sewing blocks at the show.

This is a Thangles project from a new line from Hoffman and last week with all the rain, I just needed something that held out some hope for spring and summer!

And yes, I have another project picked out already . . . all those Civil War reproductions have been calling me along with a sort of new technique book that came in.  I've made myself promise myself that I wouldn't bring that home till at least two came off the wall and I quilted the table runner top that's been hanging around for a month. 

We'll see  . . . . .
