Design Wall Monday - 2/7/11

This morning on my design wall is UFO #10, Shangri-La Disappearing 9 Patch.


This is such a fun pattern and as you may remember, Shangri-La is my all-time favorite fabric line.

My goal is to finish this quilt completely this month as it was in a mostly pieced state when I started.  I only added a row to the width.

I'm planning on putting a small brown border and then a larger blue or green floral border to finish it off.  Then this little beauty is going on the couch in the downstairs family room so I don't have to send my kiddos after my quilt on my bed every time I sit down to watch TV and I want a quilt to snuggle under!

I didn't realize how many stripes I used until it was all finished.   This was pieced before I had the benefit of a design wall, but I'm such a scrappy gal, I'm not sure I would have taken the time to put it on the design wall even if I'd had it.

I kind of like just putting a quilt together and seeing how it looks in the end...that's part of the mystery for it for me.  Isn't it funny how we're all different?

It´s coming out beautiful, Tamera, like everything you do.

Of course you must save such a beauty for family roon. Be sure to take hold of it.

What a great scrappy throw! Hope you'll share a photo when you get the borders on.

I love that line too....I still have some. It's assigned to a UFO that's low on the priority list...

Great quilt. And, yes, during the winter we usually have at least 2 quilts in the tv room. Although, winters here aren't so bad compared to ne PA where we used to live! Keep plugging away on your projects.

It's beautiful.

I really like it. I normally don't buy stripes very often as I never know what to do with them, you have me rethinking that.

Disappearing Nine Patches are so fun...totally relaxing to sew. I was working on my #10 last night. I am almost finished so I think I am going to pull out a different UFO that is barely started and work on that so once that number is pulled, I will be a bit further along.

If I had a $1.00 for every stripe (and polka dots) fabric in my stash, I would be rich -- this is a stunning use of the stripes. Thank you for this inspiration -- I hope you won't mind seeing this again on my site one day. Love it!

The stripes work really well in that pattern. It's fun to look at.

I Love all the stripes. Can't wait to see it all finished. You are going to love snuggling under it. Seriously it's -12 there??!! It's 59 here at 9 PM.

I really like this quilt and can't wait to see if complete. The fabric is beautiful!

I love all the stripes--they add a lot of energy to the quilt. These are such pretty colors to work with. Glad you will be "selfish" and keep this one for YOU!

Tamera, that's a pretty quilt. I am going to do the same pattern at a retreat in a couple weeks. I think I will use my batik 5inch squares. been collecting them for a while and the pile is getting big!

I love the colors in this! D9P quilts are so easy and wonderful to make. I am planning one for a graduation gift right now - black and white and pink....with a black and white and pink bias stripe for the binding! Gotta love it!
