Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall



This morning I have two things to show.  First up is Ladder to the Stars 2 – aka Deadline II.  This is the quilt I made back in October to test my pattern which was published yesterday in The Quilt Pattern Magazine.  Not only was I testing the pattern, I was also testing my quilting design.  It was an epic fail, so I backed up and punted to get the original Ladder to the Stars quilted.

A very good friend ripped out all of the quilting for me and then I spent the last part of the week quilting this on my sewing machine.  Curves in the sashing and straight lines in the blocks and setting triangles.  The border has a diamond cable.  I used bleached Warm and Natural batting and the thread – top & bottom – is — well shoot. I’ve lost the label — I’ve used it before so I’ll dig through the blog and find the information and add it to this post later.  cairo-quilt 100% cotton in Honey Gold.

After washing the quilt finished at 57″ x 68″.

This quilt is on several of my UFO goal lists for the year, including the 2014 Finish Along sponsored by The Littlest Thistle. I’ll update the link when I  link up.

In addition to finishing the quilt, I worked on my Jared Takes a Wife blocks.  Two more seams on each block to go.DW0602-JTAW


See what others are working on over at Patchwork Times.

Here’s the link to the 2nd Quarter Finish Party over at The Littlest Thistle and my 2nd Qtr list.

3 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

    The brown quilt looks really good. I am currently quilting on a project where the fabrics looked great close up, but when I took a picture of it, two of them were so close together in value that they blend together.

  2. Your Jared Takes a Wife blocks are lovely. The pink centers really pop. Love your design in your finished quilt. The yellow just jumps out and is wonderful.

  3. Your ladder quilt is stunning. I can’t imagine taking out the quilting. So glad you were able to finish it.
