Design Wall Monday, August 23

I finished the two wheel chair lap quilts!  Since I finished them yesterday, I'm going to count them in last weeks busted stash, so that's 8 more yards busted!  Woo Hoo!

I should also get the binding on Mimi's quilt finished today, and that's a twin size quilt all from my stash, so that will bust a bunch.

But...

On my design wall are these cute little blocks from the workshop on Friday with Darlene Zimmerman.


Since orange is my favorite color, I decided to do the quilt in orange and green 1930s reproductions.  And, of course, it's coming exclusively from my stash as well!

These little blocks are going into Darlene Zimmerman's Hummingbird Quilt (image obtained from Darlene Zimmerman's website) and I can't wait to see what it looks like when it goes together.  It's a variant of Job's Tears.  She added sashing and cornerstones so that all the little points don't have to come together.  Now, why didn't I think of that????  That's why we have quilters who show the rest of us better ways to do things, lol.




I think I may use this as a Leaders and Enders Project. I'm taking the rest of August and the month of September as a UFO finishing time.

I have one more quilt that is basted that I need to quilt and bind.  I'll hand bind that one since it's for my sister.

Hop over to Judy's if you haven't and see what everyone else is up to this week.

Also, check out the rest of my blog.  I have a giveaway in honor of my 100th post.

Have a quilty day.

that would be a cool L/E project. I'm thinking of using a month-maybe sept. as a finish it up month, too many things going on-and not just on the quilting front!

I like the idea of taking off time to have a UFO finishing time. I think that I will plan that for November and December. I like the blocks. Great job on color selection.

I love Darlene Zimmermann patterns. Always so fun. Your hummingbirds are darling.

I am going to try to post again without typos!! I think that your quilts are very pretty. I have had to alter a quilt this summer due to a cutting mistake on my part and the points not lining up. So I had to go to plan B. Nice job!!

What size were the wheel chair quilts? Anything from Darlene is sure to look great. I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I love orange, too. I never get to use it, though. I should try harder!!

Gorgeous!! They almost look like nautical stars. Very cool.

Very pretty colorway. How fun to raid the stash for the fabrics. Congrats on some finishes--wish I had one to report. I have yet to start a leader-ender project but keep thinking about it.
