Design Wall Monday - March 7, 2011

It was a great weekend, a little laundry, a little housework and a little sewing all got accomplished.  Actually, quite a bit of sewing got done this weekend, but there is not much up on my design wall to show for it.   

Block 12 from the Buck-a-Block BOM is done.  Now I have to decide on a final layout before I can finish up this quilt. 


Also finished Block 9 of the Layer Cake Quilt Along.


I spent a lot of sewing time putting away left over yardage and cutting up the fabric scraps for the 2008 BOM quilt, which I finished binding last weekend.  I did also manage to find enough carpet space to lay out the quilt to take it's "finished" picture.



I'm not really into pink, but I like this quilt.  It does look a bit old fashioned with it's faded pinks and greens. Trudy Lindemann did the quilting.  I love the swirly look of the loops and feathers, it really fits the quilt.  



So this quilt project is now all done.  The label is on, the quilt is folded up and stacked in the closet till I figure out where it's going.  


That's it for me this week.  Check out Patchwork Times to see what other cool projects are in the works.

  3. the pink quilt does look old fashioned or vintage, very pretty. Nice you got so much done over the weekend. Just organizing and cutting up scraps takes forever.

  6. I love the quilt. I really like pink in clothes, but don't do a lot with it in quilts. I tend to use a lot of browns (for some reason). Love your LC block.

    I was fascinated by your block 9...it's such a neat layout and I had to really check it out to see why it looks so different from mine!
