Design Wall / Quilting

IMG_1262 I’ve started quilting my Carol Doak paper pieced quilt.  This is one of the quilts that was on top of my filing cabinet and I was reluctant to tackle them.  I made the pieced back and sandwiched it in early January.    I’m looking forward to having this UFO done!  So why am I FMQ stitch in the ditch?  Its so slow …  but then again, it’s what this quilt is calling me to do.


I’m sewing with friends today!  YEAH!!!   I will be working on more of these blocks.  The pattern is “Fractured Paint Box” by Judy Niemeyer.   It’s a paper-pieced pattern that I’m doing without sewing on the papers. I started on this one in 2016.

  1. Thank you for sharing! I have a paper pieced Christmas tree (yes, a Christmas tree) that stares mournfully at me from my design wall every day……You have inspired me to at least finish the top. Your Fractured Paint Box Blocks are stunning! Great color choices!


    • Thanks Patricia! I’m glad you’re inspired to finish your Christmas tree. If you do it soon – it’ll be done without the panic of a Christmas deadline! 🙂 As for the colours I’ve chosen – it’s hard to go wrong when you have a batik jelly roll in your favourite colour! Happy Quilting!
