Design Wall May 1, ’17

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a “Design Wall” post.  So here goes!

Love Letters

I’m in the process of quilting “Love Letters.”  I’m entering it in the show this coming weekend – sew …. the quilting needs to be finished.  I did some ruler work (see in the pink triangles?) and that took a LOT of time.  Quilting the swirls is going much faster!  However, if I quilt for too long, my thumb on my right hand hurts.  So, I’m trying to quilt this in 10-15 minute segments.  The border and binding are already done – so it’s just the blocks that I need to finish.  I’m hopeful that it will be finished by Wednesday!img_0674.jpg

Fractured Paint Box

This is one of my UFO’s in progress.  It’s a Judy Niemeyer pattern.  This is my 4th quilt using this pattern.  Yes, it’s a paper piecing pattern, but a dear friend taught me how to paper piece without sewing on the paper … and so I can re-use the pattern.  And I must admit – this pattern is very easy to adapt to this method of non-paper-piecing.  This pattern also uses a jelly roll – so it’s a wonderful way to use my beautiful batik jelly rolls that are languishing in my stash!  unknown-jpg

  2. I love both of these quilt. But I am really in love with that Fractured Paintbox quilt. You are right in that it’s a perfect design for those batiks. You’ve got a great eye for color.
