Design wall 1/26/15 fabric and block

There really isn’t anything exciting on my wall this week. I’m still trying to use up my stash so I found a beautiful floral print but only had one yard of it, so I cut it up and that’s what’s on my wall.

I’m going to frame the blocks and add a Sashing. It will look similar to the California quilt that I made last year but won’t be as big because I only had 1 yard of fabric. I don’t really care what size it ends up as it will just be a lap quilt and the fabric is so pretty I don’t want to cut it into small pieces.

I am also making progress on my Georgia block, I didn’t get it done in two weeks like I did Florida but it’s coming along.


I guess that’s it for today,to see other design walls check out


Florida block done

2 weeks and 1 day! That is a record for me, as far as getting a block done!! Woohoo!!
I think using the pearl cotton and marking with the friction pen has made a huge difference. I can’t believe I did this block in such a short amountof time. I marked the Georgia block tonight so hopefully I can get it done in a few weeks (like I did Florida)instead of months. It probably won’t happen though since the mystery lock in is coming up the first weekend of March.

For now I’m just happy to get another block done!!!!’

Design wall Monday, 1/5/15 Mini, UFO and panel

Here it is the first Monday of the new year and I have no projects or at least any new projects on my wall. I do have a couple of quilts that I will be making soon but I still don’t have them cut out, so for now, on my wall is the panel which reminds me that I need to work on the blocks to go with it. Also on my wall is my first UFO finish for 2015. Yeah! In looking back I think I quilted this in 2012 and it’s been waiting for the binding ever since then, now it’s done. One down many more to go for the year.
Also on the wall is my storm at sea mini that I finished piecing last week and I put borders on it over the weekend so now it’s ready for quilting.

My goal in 2015 is to finish UFOs and continue to use my stash. I plan to give it my best shot. 🙂
