Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall

At the moment, there’s nothing on my design wall — still can’t get to it.  I’ve also taken down the temporary design wall, so there’s nothing on it either.  But that’s not to say I’m not working on things.

Border pieces for Orca Bay are ready to be stitched – and have been since Friday afternoon.

Friday night I started de-boning shirts.  Would you believe the last time I bought a thrift shirt was back in June?  They are stuffed in a  box and a laundry basket. My goal is to get them into usable fabric. I have a couple of ideas for quilts and I can’t start either one until I have this task done.


Actually, even when I get the shirts dealt with, I won’t start the shirt quilt. I need to turn this pile of fabric into a quilt for my niece. I need a ton of black and bright 4-patches, bright flying geese in black skies and bright triangles in black squares – at which point I’ll need my design wall.


Nothing like tasks dependent on each other.  I am making progress getting to the design wall. In addition to working on the shirts, I took two quilts and boxed them up for delivery — then took them out to my car. It may be cold, but the cold won’t hurt the quilts.

See what other are working on by following the links over at Patchwork Times.

4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. YEA! Orca Bay is getting closer to the Flimsy. The Bright quilt sounds fun to with all those different block parts to be made. Lots of Chain stitching ahead. De-boning shirt Bonnie’s way counts as exercise. LOL

  2. What a great collection of shirts. I love working with recycled shirts and don’t use them often enough. Your quilt for your niece sounds wonderful. I love black and brights together. Have fun!

  3. Hi!!!! Sounds like some wonderful blocks you will be making!!!!! I love how black looks with bright pops of color!!!!

  4. Love your plaids. I collect shirts, too. I keep up with cutting them apart but not with pressing them.
