What is on my design wall!

Judy Laquidara over at Patchwork Times has started "What is on your design wall". Just click on the links and you can read all about it. I am definitely very late or very early with my post. But here is what is on my design wall.

In our Quilting In Indiana Yahoo group I have posted a challenge. The challenge is to use up your scraps. This is what I have been doing with mine. This is a quilt as you go project that will end up being reversible. I don't have the blocks in the position they will end up in. I just have them on the design wall to keep them out of the way until they are done. These have already been quilted but with 80 blocks I still have a ways to go.

Today I spent a few hours at an Estate sale and a couple of flea markets. The only thing I found was this.

I found this great little travel iron at one of the flea markets. Isn't it so cute!!!!

It was still in the original box and still wrapped in the original packing. The cord is even still coiled up for shipping. The handle folds down after you remove the plug. This little thing is sure heavy but weren't those irons we had way back then so great!!! It seemed like they lasted a lifetime so I think I will really like this one. I couldn't go wrong for $3.00.

That has been my day!
Hope you are having a good one!

Love those bright happy blocks on your design wall. Does that little iron have a temp setting? I'd have grabbed that one too!

The iron sure was a good buy. Even if you never iron with it, it'll make a good door stop.

That is a nice iron, its always fun to find special bargains. Your quilt is an interesting one in the making.
