DESIGN Wall Monday- January 6, 2014

It's been a while since there has been anything new on the WALLS at Thread & Bolts.
Lynn's Daughter has been good to send pictures with her phone this past week.
So Mary could post them here and link-up to the Design Wall Monday.
 Lynn started these BATIK blocks for another Bouquet of Friendship.
She is trying to get some of her started projects off the UFO list.
Here they are on the WALL to arrange the 25 in the center. She left them up there to look at while she and Tammy finished June's Fairy quilt in the Longarm. Tammy is learnign how to use the Longarm since her mother has been trying to figure out why she is so weak and can't do everything she was doing.

Tammy is making this cute baby Minnie and Mickey quilt for a friend.
The hearts really add a lot to the yellow corners.
The center panel is a Neckerchief. 
But first this OWL baby quilt has to be quilted...

Lynn and Tammy were racing to see how fast they could sew up these cute
Owl baby quilts way back HERE.
