Design Wall Monday, Jan 10

OK, it's a little late for Design wall, but here goes.

Oh yeah, and I don't actually HAVE a design wall yet, but here goes.

And, oh yeah, I don't actually HAVE anything new started, but here goes....

I did finish quilting the baby quilts last night.



I got the design from the The PajamaQuilter Reloaded, which I highly recommend. It's a good starting place, I think. However, I was thinking yesterday that there are different styles of FMQ (free motion quilting) and if she's not your style, some other book will work better for you, lol. How's that for helpful???? NOT! lol

Here's a close-up of some of the flowers that I quilted on this quilt.



On the Star Quilt, I decided to do something different because I wanted to practice for quilting Mariah's Quilt. You may remember (but probably don't, lol) that I made a quilt for my daughter Mariah. It turned out really cute, and I'm getting ready to quilt it. I had decided that I wanted to quilt the triangles on it, and I had in my mind what I wanted to do, but then, when I got ready to quilt the Star Quilt, I thought..."Hey, I could practice on this quilt, then by the time I get to Mariah's quilt, I'll be GOOD at triangles, lol!"

Anyway, here's my attempt at the triangles...



Here's a little close-up...



Make sure you head on over to Judy's blog to see what everyone else is up to.

Also, pop over to Mary Johnson's Blog and you can see a quilt that I pieced and she quilted. It looks really great...if I do say so myself.

Oh, and one last thing!

My friend Lori from Dakota City Quilter sent me some bricks. Isn't she just in INCREDIBLE sweetheart?



I'm planning on making a Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt (or two) with these. I need to get busy making some little four patches.

Thanks again, Lori!

Isn't it scarey trying new to you quilting designs? What are you quilting your quilts on, a DSM or a longarm?

Congrats on finishing the baby quilts! Anything particular in your mind for the next "new" project?

the triangle quilting looks great, I need to remember to try that one. I saw your quilt on Mary's blog (didn't know you were "that" Tamera! It was nice of Chesty to model in front of it too!

I agree, the quilt turned out very nice. I've got to get back to quilting when I get home next week but I've been catching up on my binding which is good!

Wow, you have been busy quilting! You never know if you are going to like a design until you try, right? I like what you've done! Cheers! Evelyn
