Design Wall Monday, February 28, 2016

On my design wall this morning are two floppies that I finished yesterday.

The first one is my violet monochromatic quilt. I used The Boardwalk Block tutorial from 13 Spools. Be sure and check out her website for lots of great information!

Violet Monochromatic Quilt

It's REALLY purple, lol. I'm glad that I didn't have enough of the dark purple and I decided to go with the different colored centers. Although, looking at it now, I realize that it might have been cute. The different centers are some of the myriad of different solids that I have, so in addition to using up quite a bit of the purple I had in my stash, I used up some solids as well.

After the quilt was finished, I ended up with all these scraps. Not sure what to do with them, but they're fun! Any suggestions?


After I finished this one yesterday afternoon, I was bored and saw a jelly roll pack that I had sitting around opened. I decided to make a a quick Jelly Roll Race quilt.

 I don't remember what line it's from because it was out of the package and had been sitting around my studio for a while opened. I was afraid it would get messed up, so I decided to see how long it would take me to get it done. It was quick, lol...just a few hours.

I'm linking with Judy at Patchwork Times. Make sure and check out what everyone else is doing!

Today, I'm planning on basting two quilts that I need to finish by Saturday. Hope you have a quilty day!

Goals for This Week

I have big plans for this week.

First of all, I have several quilts that just need binding to finish up.

I have two quilt that are almost quilted.

And, I want to start on my Monochromatic quilt...which I have decided may be two different quilts, lol.

Let's see how much I get done!

Today, I have a little visitor. He's the grandson of my husband's cousin, lol.

Oakley and Josiah
 I think my son likes having a "little brother" for the day.

Hope you have a quilty day!

Working on Feathers

I've been working on the borders of my mom's quilt. There are two thick borders and I'm doing feathers in them.

My feathers don't look that nice up close, but on the bed, they don't look too bad, lol.

Hope you're having a quilty day!

Progress on an Old UFO

I'm making progress on my mom's quilt. I have one more border to do, then just a few spots to fill in.

Practice, Practice, Practice

I'm working to finish up an old UFO. It's one of my mother's first quilts, and I told her I'd quilt it for her. Well, several years later...I've brought it out again. I just have a few more areas to quilt and I'll be finished.

The quilt is set on point and I finished the side triangles a long time ago. It's funny how much better I am today.
For the corner triangles, I am going to be putting in a filled in heart. I practiced on a scrap piece.

I think I like the outlined ones better. You can see there's something stuck on the batting, lol. That's why I used it up in a scrap piece.

My husband and kiddos bought me some flowers for Valentine's.
 I'm quite certain that my husband would have bought red roses, but my little daughter said she wanted white roses to remind me of my wedding dress. She's such a lovey!

Hope you're all having a quilty day!

Another Way to Baste

For those of you who still pin baste quilts, here is a cool video on how to pin baste in a smaller area.
