Design Wall Monday

Welcome to all following links on Design Wall Monday!  Please browse around for a spell.  And if you are interested in a “Quilt Show” check out my archives for Dec. 09.  Each day of Dec. I featured one of my quilts, starting from the first ones all the way to show quilts.  ENJOY!  And do come visit again!


The One Block Wonder is coming along.  I have rearranged this about 10 times, but I am getting very close to what I want.  It is amazing how I notice things in this picture that need moving, but it does not show so much on the real thing.  I think the blocks with the mostly-white centers really “pop” too much, so I’ll have to figure out a way to de-emphasize them.  Hopefully I will get this sewn together soon and have it ready to quilt when IQ arrives….  19 more days!!

Veggie Tales quilts are done and almost ready to send to the twins… I just need to make labels for them.  I found the most PERFECT binding fabric… it is called “Freckles” by Free Spirit.  Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it when I was snapping the others.  It is a tiny, tiny pin-dot of about 8 different bright colors on a black background… WONDERFUL binding fabric.  It would also make a great background fabric for a colorful quilt.  I’m going to have to hunt down some more of this!


Both quilts were quilted using the Curlz panto.  I really considered custom quilting, but I kept reminding myself…

1.  These are USING quilts… they will be washed a gazillion times.

2.  I don’t have TIME for custom quilting right now because I am slower-than-slow at it.

I love these little quilts…. they are so bright and cheerful.  I know Kyleigh and Ryleigh will enjoy using them.

Be blessed in all you do today!!  I’m quilting like crazy on a super-king-size quilt.  Can I get it done before I need to leave for bowling this evening?  I’m challenging myself to do it.

Thanks for looking!  If you wish to see what others are us to, bee-bop on over to Judy’s Patchwork Times and follow the links.  I promise you will enjoy it!



  1. your veggie tales quilts are just adorable. The kids will love them I am sure.

  2. Great job on all the quilts, but the Veggie Tales ones are my favorite. Bright colors + fun fabrics = lots of smiles.

  3. Your One Block Wonder is sooo pretty. And the Veggie tales a the cutest things I've seen in a while . Good job.

  4. Great job on the Veggie Tales quilts. I'm sure they'll be loved to pieces! Your One Block Wonder is very pretty. I started one quite a while ago, I may have to dig it back out!

  5. Drag about quilts are definitely not in the running for custom quilting at my house either! The binding fabric sounds perfect. Thanks for sharing your quilts.

  6. I think your quilting is just fine! Love the one block wonder, it is coming to a beautiful finish.


  7. Your "One Block Wonder" is beautiful! I made one (using a monochromic fabric) and it is amazing how helpful a camera or reducing glass can help you see the design "more clearly". Have a great week!

  8. I like the way the one block wonder is coming along. The white center blocks do "pop", but I don't think it's too much.

    The Veggie Tales quilts are perfect for little ones to cuddle with.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
