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!
