Design Wall Monday - April 15th

Hope your weekend wasn't taken up with doing taxes.  I finished ours up last weekend.  Saturday was filled with a volleyball tournament in Joplin, MO on Saturday.  But Sunday was spent at home, mainly on housework and laundry.  I did find some time to sew Sunday evening, which is pretty much all the sewing that  went on this week. Work was a crazy place last week and so I needed to put in a few more hours than normal.  I'm hoping things will be much calmer this week.  

The last two borders were attached to the OSU Quilt, so it's now a finished flimsy   

OSU Quilt
Pattern is A Day at the Spa

Designed by Carolyn S. Vagts
found in the February 2013 issue of Quilter's World

I like how it turned out. It is certainly orange, a color I wouldn't normally work much with.  It was a fun project that stretched my color comfort just a bit.  Most of last evening was spent piecing the back.  Hopefully, I'll get that done in the next night or two and will be able to send this one out for quilting.  

That's pretty much it for what was up on my design wall this week.  Not much progress with the Sweet Treat quilt, so I didn't bother taking any photos of it.  Check out more design walls over at Patchwork Times.

  1. Greetings from southern OK. Great quilt! I hope my "orange" daughter doesn't see it. She'll want one. (I have a "crimson" daughter, too).

  2. It's definitely very orange! I like it - the black strips tie everything together, and the borders are very nice.

  10. The borders really add a punch to the quilt! I often make borderless quilts and really need to try harder to add that extra detail :) HOpe this week is a lot calmer for you and yours!
