Design Wall Monday - April 8th

It was a quiet weekend, one of those I've started referring to as the calm before the chaos.  Lots going on the next 2 weekends, then we'll get another calm one (I hope anyway).   Sunday was a bit miserable as I woke up with a sore throat.  I love spring, but my sinuses don't like the pollen.  I should buy stock in the company that makes Benadryl as I certainly take a lot of it this time of year.  

Lots of sewing happened this last week.  The OSU quilt only needs two border strips added to be 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

The black borders frame all the orange quite well.  The last two strips are all ready to go, so this one should be a finished flimsy tonight.  

The OSU quilt is too big for the design wall now, so it had to come down.  I couldn't leave all that space open, so I pulled out an old project that needs to be finished up before May.  

Sweet Treat
Designed by Judy Laquidara
(pattern available here)

Sweet Treat was one of the last year's quilt alongs over at Patchwork Times.  I finished all the blocks, but never got around to adding the sashing and the borders.  It's hard to tell from the photo, but rows one and two are sashed and sewn together.  Row three has the sashing added between the blocks, but it hasn't been sewn to row two yet.  Rows 5 and 6 still need to be squared up.  

That's it for my design wall this week.  Hop over to Patchwork Times for more of design wall Monday.

Your OSU quilt is great and Ilove the Sweet Treats Quilt. It looks like a very sweet quilt. I'm glad you got some sewing time in before it gets too busy!

Those borders on the OSU quilt are so striking! I love that quilt more and more and I am definitely not an OSU fan. Very nice.

I'm not normally in to borders, but the borders on the OSU quilt look fabulous. I can't wait to see the full quilt top finished.
Sweet Treat is really cute, love the mix of blue and reds.
