   Donna's sample for the shop is my task of the day.  Normally I get the idea and put the quilt on the machine and away I go.  But in this case I'm going to mark the quilt blocks using a plastic template method.
I found a continuous line design that I like, but it needs to be enlarged in order to fit the 8" blocks.
Then I trace the pattern onto template plastic with a sharpie pen.  Next I cut out the design so that it can be traced onto the quilt.
Really love this new book for quilting patterns. 
I don't know about you but I find books invaluable when looking for designs for quilts.  Well that's what I'ma workin on this Wednesday, and taking down Christmas decorations and fighting a cold and maybe some pinning on Pinterest.  Laural

Wow, you've got a busy day planned. So sorry you have a cold! I've been fighting with mine for the last week. Take care of yourself and rest some.
