Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall

There’s nothing on my design wall proper but a few threads.  Since I finished both the Irish Chain and Stained Glass quilt tops last week, I was at a loss on what to work on next.  I could have pulled out my list of things which I would like to finish by the end of the year, but instead, I pulled out my shirts.

Back in early July, I restrained myself from cutting into my shirts to start Checkerboard Plaids.

It is from Evelyn Sloppy’s 40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts.

This weekend I resisted no more and made a good headway on my units required for the quilt top.  I still need to make the strips with two plaids and one muslin center before I can start working on the blocks.  Turns out I didn’t have enough dark shirts, but I found a few homespuns in my stash that I was able to work into mix.

Oh, and other good news — I found the missing spool blocks when I was cleaning up the sewing room.  I also cut a few more.

Check out the links over at Patchwork Times to see what’s on others design walls this morning.

2 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. Glad you found a new project to work on. I had fun de-boning shits last week. I’ll have to look at that book for more scrappy ideas.

    love the spools, will have to find a way to make them, as they look like the ones Bonnie Hunter is also working on
