Design Wall Monday–April 23, 2012

I have something new on my design wall.  It is a sample I am making for Tiny Stitches.  The fabric is Vintage Modern and the pattern comes from Missouri Star Quilt Company and is one of their layer cake video patterns.  I used the idea for a quilt during retreat but forgot the directions and ended up making a variation instead.  It turned out OK but I thought I should make the real version.

I already found one block turned wrong.  I don’t know what I would do without my camera to check things out.

I love the colors in this quilt.  I bought 4 1-yard pieces of Ruby by the same designers for the back.  There wasn’t enough on any of the bolts to us as a one fabric back so I will just do a giant four patch.

I didn’t get any polka dot blocks done this week – I am sad but hope to work on them later this week.  I have some customer quilting to get done first.

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times and check them all out – it is one of the highlights of Monday for me.



  1. This is so pretty. I agree, the camera really makes things clearer.

  2. I likey! You can't miss with those colors.

  3. So beautiful! I love those colours, too :)

  4. Love the colors. It's amazing what you can find in a photograph versus what you see just looking at it.

  5. I'm going to have to get me some of those fabrics, I agree great colors. I didn't even notice a block turned the wrong way. There's so much movement in your quilt the eye just keeps traveling, very pretty.

  6. Very Nice and looks great! Good luck in getting your customer quilts done!


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
