Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall


My design wall hasn’t seen anything since I finished Eye Fooler. I’ve spent the past week cutting fabrics for not one, but 3 Disappearing 9-Patch quilts to work on at an upcoming retreat. I am happy to say that I’ve finished the cutting — that is the cutting before I start sewing. There’s more cutting after I sew a bit.

My shirt boxes were stuffed to the point there was absolutely no room for another cuff, let alone another shirt. Now that I’ve finished cutting my squares, I have half a box empty — out of 8.

dw0525-1There are three things left on my quilting list for May:

  • Figure out where I left off on Sew Scrappy
  • Figure out what I’m taking to the retreat besides DP9s
  • Trace off some stars for the now ‘Star Every 3rd Day’ quilt.

See what others are working on over at Patchwork Times.


4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. The best thing about a huge cutting marathon is that sewing will soon follow. Have fun with your D9P quilts.

  2. These will work up quickly now that the cutting is done. Have fun with them. Lucky Nephews!

  3. Quilt construction always goes so much faster if it’s all cut out. I can just never make myself do all of it up front. You cut not one, but three quilts. Wow!

  4. I love to have a day or two of cutting. The sewing just flies then! D9P is one of my favorite blocks, too. Have fun!
