Design Wall Monday

 I have been working on my Scrappy Trip around the world blocks!  I'm finishing them up on my treadle!  I've had my treadle for a year and could not get the rhythm down(I have two left feet), so at the TOGA I asked a lady to please help, after about 15 minutes of instruction from her I can do it no problems!  Wow is it fun, and it can go fast too!  I'm learning how to control my speed between fast and slow and stop!  It just takes practice.  Can you see all of my chain stitching behind the pedal?  I have to keep my pin cushion in the drawer or my kitties will pull the pins out and I am terrified of them swallowing one, so it's easier just to pull out the drawer while I'm sewing.
Here I am at the TOGA learning how to sew.
Muffin loves My Scrappy Trip Around the World blocks!  Here they are all sewn into tubes.
 I actually cleaned off my sewing table, so maybe ya'll won't think it is always a mess on there!
The strips were waiting to be sewn into tubes, and Muffin followed the tray as I moved it through the day.  

He thinks it is a new cat bed for him.
I got this basket when I went to the Treadle on gathering academy  (TOGA) and it is the perfect size for keeping my completed blocks in.
I've made 16 more bowtie blocks.  I've decide this quilt will be twin size, perfect for taking along on quilt retreats and  camp meetings when I need my own quilt.
 I'm also hoping I'll have enough room in my new sewing room for a daybed to use for guests.
I forgot to take a picture of my finished Scrappy Trip Around the world blocks, I'll have to post that later.

What are you working on?
