    What's currently on your design wall?

    Hi,

    Here's what's on mine...it's called the "So Many Scraps" quilt. I got the pattern when I visited Tennessee several years ago and have worked on it on and off since. It's getting closer! I put it on the design wall last night to make sure I have enough blocks and triangles...and I do! So now I'm taking them down a few at a time to trim then will put them back up and play around with color and such before sewing them together. I'm really looking forward to getting it done! The original quilt was done with the dark green small triangles and muslin. I opted for dark blue and yellow. Please ignore the ripple...I have something plugged in there under the design wall. The lighting was bad...the yellow is really very pale...

    I'm doing a wall hanging size attic windows. The "windows" show beach and rocks, water and sky. The top is together except for the border (woodgrain). I'm going to turn it into a roman shade with the "warm window" insulated backing. It's a gift for my sister who had to move away from the coast to live closer to medical care for her husband. The shade will cover a very cold window that looks out into her carport.

    I really want a design wall, but I don't have the room for one yet. I am working on a quilt for a baby shower, Mother is having a boy.

    My design wall is bare. The Blue Verona quilt needs a back so I can pin it together. A top a friend asked us to quilt for her is on the pinning table. The appliqued baby quilt is being hand quilted. That's enough projects for now. Love what ya'll are doing!

    Have you ever started a quilt and thought oh my, what did I get myself into? Well I have one on my design wall now. The pattern is called Madeline by Brambleberry Cottage Quilts. Im using Northcotts Fabric called Belle Provence. It will finish at 84x100. It consists of 30 twelve in. blocks, and there are 49 pieces in each block, 7 of which are fussy cut, and its set on the diagonal, then theres a sawtooth border, than 2 additional borders. Very labor intensive! Gish Im wore out just writing about it!! LOL

    I am working on a strip pieced king size quilt but I don't have enough blocks for the design wall stage. It's kind of on hold til I finish a Jinny Beyer DA VINCI kit for my grandson's HS graduation this year. I'm really going to have to push to get it done in between doing long arm quilting.

    I can't show you right now.

    If I did.........

    I would have to confiscate all of your seam rippers and the 1/4" foot off your machines.

    Only thing I can say is I have to start sewing again tomorrow after we get home from the DMV.

    This is on my wall. Been working on it off and on for about 4 months. Nine more blocks to go, then the border once I decide what the border is going to be.

    I've still got Santa on the design wall, the sides are done bargello & 3 of them are done so far. Then putthe outer border on & quilt it. I should have it done by Christmas! LOL Also have 2 scrappy mystery quilts on the other wall that need to be finished. A QOV on the longarm that's 2/3 done & a wholecloth on the dining room table still being worked on for design. I think I have enough to keep me occupied!!
