Design wall Monday 1/14/13

My preference for a backing is to use a wide fabric. I looked at all my wide ones and didn’t have one that looks good with my patriotic row by row quilt, so……I decided to make a pieced backing for it.


The center block was from the Kansas City Star patterns (several years ago). I collected the pattern each month, but only made 2 blocks. I figured I might as well put it in here and use up some of my patriotic fabrics. šŸ™‚

Here is the other block I made that year.


I taught a class at my LQS on mitered borders, so I used this block as a sample on how to miter the corners, that’s why it has 3 borders around it. I found it in with all my patriotic fabrics. I think I’ll just do a quick all over design on it and use it as a table topper. Then I can call it done!! šŸ™‚

Ok, that’s what I’m working on. If you want to see what others have on their walls, go to

Have a good day!
