Design wall 9/12/11

This isn’ t actually on the wall, but for this week I’m going to devote at least 10 minutes a day to work on these blocks. I have the 6″ blocks complete and the rest are 9″ blocks. This is a mystery quilt that I’m making, so I don’t know what it’s going to look like.

Here’s the back of the current quilt that’s on Millie. I need to focus on getting this done. I love making feathers fit into odd spaces. LOL!! 🙂

I better get back to work. Check out more design walls at

Have a great day!


3 more UFO’s done

They are almost done anyway…… just have the bindings left to hand sew down. I like to do those on road trips and I have a couple of road trips coming up, so I will have them ready to go. I’m going on a 3 day  bus trip hitting 6 states and I think 12 quilt shops and then the following Saturday, we’re taking a bus up to the AQS show in Des Moines, so I can work on bindings while traveling on the bus. Last year I finished 2 bindings while on the bus trip.

This one is 104″ square.


This is a Row by Row quilt that I made at guild. I forget how many years ago we had the swap, I know it’s been sitting in the drawer for a long time. Well, no more!! This year I can have it out for fall and enjoy it. 🙂

My friend Sharon made the row with the turkeys.     I made the acorns.


I don’t remember who made the other rows.

I had taught a class years ago on making the Maple leaf blocks, so I took the 3 blocks I had made for the class and added them onto the top of the quilt, (since I wanted it bigger than it was going to come out). I needed something to fill the space on both sides, so I drew some flying geese on paper and paper pieced them and was amazed that they came out!! LOL!!

Here’s the last one I finished this week.


Well, that’s it…….now I’ll have to decide which UFO to tackle next. 🙂

Have a great day!


Design wall Monday 9/4/11

I finally got around to getting the last border sewn on this morning. The top is finished and ready to quilt. Yeah!

I used this quilt design on a customer quilt yesterday. I like the way it looks, so I think I might use it for my quilt. Maybe this week I’ll have time to get the back cut and get it quilted.

I’m currently working on getting the fall patchwork party quilt done for my LQS. I love the colors they used on it. I can’t share any pictures of it yet……but while Millie and I work on it, I think I’ll have Viqtoria work on another one of my UFO’s. I always planned on doing custom quilting on this, but after years of it sitting in the drawer unquilted, I decided that with all the beautiful pantograph patterns that are available, an allover design will be just fine for it. That way it will be done!!

Ok, that’s it for today, to see what others are working on check out
