Design Wall Monday--2/28/2011

There's nothing on my design wall, but I've been checking off steps for various other projects.  Yesterday I made piping for some pillows I'm making my DD Erica. I had a special helper.
This is Bear, who assisted me with the miles of piping.  He of course favors blue of all shades.  Bear belongs to my dad but I requested a sleepover so Dad drove him over.  More about Bear's activities at Casa de Orts later...

The Bear's Paw mini quilt got its binding and will be completed today, just under the wire for Judy's UFO Challenge.  It looks really wonky here, having been thrown over the bedcover!  See more Design Walls at Judy's Patchwork Times.

Looking good. Bear seems to be quite the helper.

Love your little quilt and I know your little helper loves it too.

Making piping is so tedious. I think your pillows count as design wall fodder.

Very cute little quilt and I think your bear is quite adorable. I noticed your picture at the header and thought what a lovely view.

Love your little helper. Cant wait to hear the story of this house guest .

Piping eh ..another thing I've never done. But from your picture I think maybe I could.

The Bear Paw Mini quilt is looking good. Almost done!

Deadlines do help to motivate us to finish....way to go!

You are lucky to have such a great helper. Hope you were able to finish up the binding. Sometimes it seems that process takes forever!

Your bear paw turned out so cute! I'm glad you finished it and shared it.

Congrats on your finished UFO -- just in time. I love it! And on getting all that piping done. Whew!
