Design Wall Monday #2

I wanted to share my Block of the Month Blocks.
 I have only finished five of them, I had problems with two of them since I had just started quilting when I made them.  I made a small design wall in my dining room to keep them.  That is where I do all of my sewing anyways, and might as well display them until I quilt them.   My husband suggested using the yarn and clothespins.   I think the first one is my favorite.
I moved my treadle to a better place to start practicing my treadling.  It is hard to get the rhythm!  Muffin modeled my machine for me and I can't decide whichpicture I like best.  What do you think?





I'm thinking of maybe posting the picture as a permanent picture on my blog.  He makes a great model - well sometimes he does!
Thank you!

I love all of them. Does he want your attention when your sewing. Mine can't be bothered my me till she hears my machine. Then she wants all of my time. Her big thing to do is set on the fabric and not move.

How nice of him to sit there all that time, mine isn't usually that accomodating. I like 5 also but all of them are interesting. And I like how you are displaying your blocks. In my bedrooom I have a valance made of BOM blocks.

Great blocks, I really like the first one too! I would pick #3, Muffin looks so cute with the one paw out front. Have fun with your beautiful treadle machine! Thanks for sharing.
