Design Wall Monday........A mystery and exploding blocks

This week the Tiger Pizzazz Panel has been removed from the design wall for the time being. I need some more dark brown to continue and I really don't feel like making a special trip for it.

The Sewing Sisters Mystery Quilt has taken its spot as I will be attending class this week. I was actually mistaken about it being last week but I wasn't the only one as Helen apparantly rocked up to class with her sewing machine and supplies only to find she was all on her ownsome.

I am a bit behind the other sewing sisters when it comes to my mystery quilt as I didn't attend last month and they are up to the sashing whereas I still have two blocks to finish.  I also have to add to the card trick block to make it bigger. I am not too concerned as they are doing the quilt-as-you method together in class whereas I will just be doing a flimsy for now and will quilt it sometime down the track.

The Exploding Block quilt is also up on the design wall and I am planning to work on this one over the course of this week. I have started to add another 'round' onto the blocks.

Also this week I want to prepare another block for the Merry Merry Snowmen quilt. I finished off Block 1 last week and if you read my post on Friday you will know that I am rather keen to get a few blocks ready for my chat and sew groups.....why not this one too.

This is how my week looks:
Monday & Tuesday - Cannot make it to Kelly Girls or Apatchy Quilts this week for my chat and sew classes......oh well, next week is never far away. Gives me time to continue with the Exploding Blocks
Wednesday - Sewing Sisters meet to work on our Mystery Quilts
Thursday - Chat and Sew at Quiltessentials - plenty to keep me going for that one.
The rest of the week - All a bit mundane this week but that only means I have more time to sew at home.
