Design Wall Monday

It's that day of the week again. Time to post what's on my design wall. Last week I was putting away fabric and reorganize my "kits", I came across one I knew would be quick and simple. It's from a Quilts and More magazine and I have made it once before. As I wanted a quick project that would not become an UFO, I cut it out and sewed it up in a day and a half. I even got the back all done and it's waiting to go to the quilter. The picture only shows a portion of the quilt as I could not get the whole top. It's bigger than my design wall.

This is a store model for my local needlework store I finally finished after having it way to long.It's a cross stitch piece. I love getting things finished.

Design Wall Monday

Last week I tried to post what was on my design wall and the power went out. Someone decided to take out a power pole and poof a transformer blew. Well 13 hours later I finally had power but too late to post. The first picture is a the final layout of this years quilt I am making for Marin Cat Connection.

These cute little snowman centered blocks are blocks I made used Jodi Barrows Square in a Square ruler. I had these 50 3 inch squares cut out for ever and figured they would be a good test of the ruler. It was so much fun to use, I am going to make more. Figured this will be my I don't feel like doing anything else project.

Monochromatic Challenge

I got the quilt top done and even got to show it tonight at guild to Laura Nownes who's pattern I used. It was also done from my stash with the exception to 4 pieces of fabric and will be given as a baby gift to a little guy that was born yesterday. The back will be from my stash too. Gotta love a quilt that serves four purposes.
