Design Wall Monday

It's already Monday evening
but I will still add my DWM post.

I have pulled out my Farmer's Wife blocks -
and made 2 more for a total of 12!
As always my paper piecing starts with
and unsewing
and sewing
 and un-sewing
 until I finally get it right.
And by then the paper is shredded...
Nevertheless I managed to get
Basket #3 ( no handle yet/ upper left corner block)
and Box # 9  (lower right corner) done.
I hope in the next weeks I will be able
to squeeze in some more Farm blocks.

I also tackeled another UFO
and am working on the binding
for Christmas Lights
(modified; a Bonnie Hunter mystery from Quiltmaker):
You can see the not-yet-joined binding strip
on the top of the picture.
I amchien sew the binding to the quilt back and then sew
a decorative stitch from the front.
That's the only way I ever get binding done...

And last but not least:
my Orca Bay has not changed much
and is still in half assembled blocks:

That's it from my end.
Please go and check all the other beautiful design walls
