What’s on My Design Wall

Between cleaning the living room, my sister moving, and my initial pass though Mom’s sewing room, it’s getting crowded in my sewing room. As a result, I can’t get to the design wall and today’s picture is taken on my bed — please ignore the pile of clothes at the foot of the bed.

This is my Stripy 4-Patch which I made Leader/Ender style. I started it in the fall of 2007, but when I found out that I had a new great-niece, I used the pieces I had completed to make a baby quilt which was delivered in January 2008.

Once I finished Violet’s quilt, I resumed sewing the 4-patches for the current quilt. By this time last year, the pieced strips were done and I simply needed to cut the stripe fabric and sew it together.

This was one of the quilts I took to last year’s retreat, but did not get to. Earlier this month I thought I’d take it to this year’s retreat, but sometime in the last week, I pulled it out and started working on it. I just need to cut and attach the top and bottom borders and miter the corners and the top will be complete.

In my crazy mind, I’m even considering trying to get it quilted this week. I just have to find something to use for backing in my stash. There will be a trip to the quilt shop to get the pink Fairy Frost for the binding.

The pattern is in Quilt-lovers’ Favorites from American Patchwork & Quilting, published by Better Homes and Gardens Books. I think it’s in Volume 2. I’m not sure what the designer called it.

5 Thoughts on “What’s on My Design Wall

  1. Very pretty! I think I have that book; I’ll have to pull out my quilt book container and check it out–you’ve done a great job with it! 🙂

    Your strip quilt reminds me of a quilt I did like that a few years ago with a blue plaid in for the sashing strip. I love the pink your pink one so that I may have to make another.

  5. Very pretty and the back looks fine too.

    I don’t have a pile of clothes on the bed but there’s a clothes basket full of them by the dresser that I need to put away. I have a bad habit of just wearing them straight from the basket and them never even making it to the drawers.
