Monday Design Wall - June 3rd

Monday already?  The weekend was way to short, especially since I had a nasty headache for both days.  I did get some stitching done, not as much as I would have liked.  Hand stitching was pretty much  my only speed for most of the weekend, which was OK as that meant the OSU quilt got finished.  


OSU Quilt
Pattern is A Day at the Spa

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

Quilted by Trudy Lindemann

I used the same orange from the border to bind the quilt. 




That makes a nice frame for the black border on the front and for the back. 



The back is Connecting Threads Mirage in coal.  That alone would have made a real boring back, so I added the pieced letters.  It came out pretty well.  This was a fun and quick quilt.  Not much progress on anything else this weekend, but it was still nice to finish quilt number 3 for 2013. 

Check out all the other design walls over at Judy's Patchwork Times.

  10. Sorry about your headache. Love the OSU quilt...the letters on the back are a great idea. Not many are fan of orange fabric, but it is one of my favorites. With the black I'd have thought of that spooky night in October; not so of your project. Nice quilt. Sandi
