Design Wall Monday for September 23, 2013

It was a gorgeous weekend, once I got over the sinus crude that started up Saturday afternoon.  Sunday morning was a bit rough, but by mid afternoon, I was feeling more myself.  Well enough to spend some time in the sewing room.  

The third border has been added to Back to Square One, but it doesn't look all that different than it did last week, so no pictures of that project this week.  Neutral Gems is up on the other design wall.  Not a ton of progress on this project, but it hasn't shown up on the blog in a while, so here it is. 

Neutral Gems
Pattern is "Gems" by Donna Lynn Thomas
found in the book Patchwork Palette

Drama Teen is lobbying for this to be her quilt.  She loves the colors and the pattern.  That's not what I had in mind, but I do have another ongoing project that I could gift to my friend if I let DT have this one.  We'll see, it's not like DT really needs another quilt.  She's already asked for a batik one that I hope to get started on this month.

That's it for my design wall this week.  There's more design walls to check out over at Patchwork Times.    


  1. I love the quilt, and had a good laugh at you calling the teen, Drama Teen! LOL. I call my grand daughter the DGT dear grandteen.... maybe I should change that to DramaTeen.... it would fit.

  2. Neutral gems is looking good. No wonder drama teen wants it.

  3. Glad you're feeling better! Neutral Gems is going to be stunning! I love that color scheme!

  4. Neutral gems always reminds me of a black and white photograph. It's so interesting to look at !

  5. I like the way the pattern is turning out too! Glad to hear you're feeling better.

  6. I can see why your daughter wants this quilt--it is going to be wonderful! Great colors/fabrics!

  7. I LOVE your Gems! I have a son who wants mine someday. It still travels with me to lectures though so can't give it up yet..

    And the scrappy stars just speaks to me. I made one something like that back in the 80's using the first line of Jinny Beyer fabrics. I'll always love Variable Star blocks.
