Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s on My Design Wall

My design wall is still not back up on the wall from last week’s retreat. For that matter, I’m having difficult moving around in my sewing room. Stuff is piled up every where. It has not, however prevented me from basic piecing. All of my Carolina Christmas blocks are done.

Last week I picked up several books from the library (I love my library — ‘quilting’ returns 1746 listings) including Saving the Scraps – Great Quilts from Small Bits by Gayle Bong. I think there are 4 quilts that I would like to make in this book, so I think I’ll be buying it for my personal library. The block pictured above is 1/4 of a block for Fractured Diamonds.

Having made one unit, it going to go into my orphan quilt block box (which is almost as stuffed as the sting box). I don’t really want to start a new quilt right now — too many quilts waiting for me to complete.

See if anyone has started something new or if they are working on their UFOs by checking out the links at Patchwork Times.

4 Thoughts on “What’s on My Design Wall

  1. Funny! I have that book on hold at my library! I do the same thing, borrow and if it’s something I know I will use, then I buy it. Except for my favorites, Judy L and Bonnie H, those I buy sight unseen!!!
    Too any quilts to complete??? How can that be? 😉

  2. I have that book and looked at the Fractured Diamonds pattern, but I thought Bonnie’s spiderweb block had better proportions. Still, it is nice to try out a new pattern without feeling obligated to it.

    My sister has that book and I’ve made 2 or 3 quilts from it. I really like the patterns and they go together quickly.

  4. that is an intriguing fractured diamond block. I vowed I would not buy another quilt book and only borrow from the library (after I donated a ton to said library-hehe) that lasted maybe 6 months. Sometimes I just like to read a good quilt pattern book. 🙂
