Design Wall Monday–September 5, 2011


My design wall hasn’t changed much from last week but actually there was a lot of sewing going on this week.  I went to three different shops looking for Superior Threads MonoPoly invisible thread.  I bought something invisible at each shop and then when I went to work at Tiny Stitches, I found that the Superior had come in.  It had been backordered for several months.  So I now have lots of invisible thread but was happy to have the one I actually wanted.  I used the Superior and appliqued all the houses with a small zig-zag stitch and it is almost invisible.

I got the sashing put on the first row and have the rest of it to cut and sew.  I am going down to quilt on the longarm for a while but hope to get more done in the morning.  Once the rows are together there is just a simple border of the gray hometown words to add and then it needs to be quilted.

For more design walls, go to Judy L’s blog here and see all the other wonderful projects.
