Design Walk Monday

Lots of piecing time this weekend on the High Cotton quilt, so more of the same on my design surface.
I now have 20 of the 63 blocks required, though not all are shown here. Liking it so far. :)

Tonight I'll attempt to get the backing to the baby quilt spray basted, as I didn't get that done. 
Pink Minkee for the backing. This is a quilt as you go project. I have the batting cut and resting. Part of the reason it didn't get done was a very good one--DD Elaine walked over with Cove and then said she'd invited a surprise guest, who turned out to be my older brother who hadn't yet met Cove. 
I got a good pic of Cove and his grandpa sitting in my sewing room!
See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

Yippee for surprise guess. :o) Lots of baby love to go around. Love textural fabrics and minkee is so darn cozy.

I love the double 4patch block. The design possibilities are wonderful. I made one that looks a bit like a "God's Eye". Remember those? Here's a link: https://flic.kr/p/a1wWnZ

I'm absolutely loving the High Cotton Quilt. Im seriously tempted to try one of those myself!

Cove is getting so big. Enjoy every moment. It goes by so fast.

Lots of progress on the High Cotton quilt, it's looking great.

Looks like Cole and his grandpa get along pretty well.
