Design Wall Monday–June 4, 2012

I finished the Halloween quilt and it is next to be quilted.  First I need to finish the Urban Cowgirl jelly roll quilt.  I was going to do a quick overall on it but once it got on the machine it demanded feathers so I only got about half done last night.  Will finish up this afternoon.

On my actual design wall is the start of a Bonnie Hunter quilt – Smokey Mountain Stars as well as the progress on the GFG.  Last time I showed it I had seven flowers sewn together and now there are thirteen.  Lots more to go.

At the Allatoona guild, members have been exchanging civil war fabrics to make Smokey Mountain Stars.  If you have read my blog at all you know the chances of me making a civil war quilt are less than me winning the Lotto.  Since I never buy tickets, that is impossible.  A civil war quilt is even more impossible coming out of my sewing room.

I do have a bit (whole big bunch) of black and white and bright colors in my stash so that is what I am going to use.  Also, the pattern is a good sized lap quilt and I enlarged it in EQ7 to a queen-size.  You would think I would learn better.  I have been cutting squares of both black and white and bright and started making a few squares.  Here is the start of the quilt.  I am planning on using these as leaders/enders.

For more design walls, go to Judy’s Patchwork Times.  Lots of fun there.

  2. Civil war era just wouldn't feel right coming out of your studio. I am sure you will put your own spin on the pattern though.

  4. Your prpojects both came from Bonnie. She's so generous with her patterns- I love her scrappy-ness. Have fun with your Leader-Enders.

  9. Looking at your flower garden blocks I decided to do some while I am on vacation at the end of the month. I printed the hexies and am still cutting them out. I will begin cutting fabric next week so I have a "pouch" of them to take along. You are a BAD influence.
