Time for another design wall Monday. Today I have two different projects to share. First is a finished project. It is small but I was able to finish it in just a few days. I started it at the Modern Quilt Guild sew-in last Thursday night and got it quilted and bound last night. It is from my favorite new line – Mama Said Sew. The pattern is by Sweetwater and is called Mama’s Spools. I uses a charm pack and a little yardage for the background and borders. Quick and easy! The spools are actually fused on and then stitched with a straight stitch close to the edges.
It doesn’t look very square on the wall, but it is – believe me please! Just need to finished sewing down the label and writing on it.
Next is a quilt I actually started this morning. I saw a video by Missouri Star Quilt Company about making a quick quilt using two layer cakes. I brought home a layer cake of Spa which is a wonderful blue and white collection. The shop didn’t have a white layer cake so I just picked up yardage of Kona White and cut my own 10 inch squares from that. Lots more blocks to make but here is the beginning of the quilt.
I am looking forward to quilting this – love the open white areas. I see lots of feathers in this quilt’s future. I can’t wait to play more with this.
