Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall

As usual, I was bouncing around on various projects last week.  But I have something to show for it this time.  I’ve finished my sister’s wedding quilt.  It measures 80 x 85 and is quilted with a red variegated or a sand variegated thread on the top and solid red on the bottom.  It’s an overall heart/ivy meander on the background and simple out line around each of the names.

Here’s a bit of the detail.

The back is a red, white and black plaid that I found on-line.

Also completed this week is Baby Glow.

The white lines around the stars on the purple fabric glow in the dark — I found that out after I brought the fabric home.  It’s also what I used on the back of the quilt.  Warm and Natural batting, 36 x 36 and yellow thread.

Have no fear, I’m still bouncing around.

Here are my log cabin blocks I’m piecing.  They’ve gotten too big to use as  leader/enders, so I’m doing 10 at a time and then a HST square for the Ocean Waves quilt.  There are 80 blocks in the pile on the left and 100 in the pile on the right.  There are 4 more logs after this round.

And the Ocean Waves quilt?

I’ve made another 100 HST squares this week bringing my total bonus and new to 600 or about 1/3 of the total I need for the quilt.   In addition to the log cabin blocks, I’ve pieced a couple of the Ocean Waves block — I’ve got two with the turquoise center, but I’m not sure where I put the other one.

It has been my intention to begin Orca Bay on Friday, but I think I may have to step back and reconsider that — or just stick to the HST square for Ocean Waves — my sewing table is getting crowded as I try to keep all the parts and pieces lined up for these two quilts — at least there’s no chance for me to get the parts mixed up.

7 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. Another couple of great finishes for your list this year! I’m debating on Bonnie’s new Mystery too . She said something about more string blocks…LOL

  2. The wedding quilt is beautiful — congrats on the finish! I’m going to note and *save* the instructions for the Orca Bay quilt … and come back to it (maybe) someday in the future. Have a great week! 🙂

  3. Nice wedding quilt. Where did you get the name letters? Orca Bay is calling my name but the holidays make it much more of a challenge….. Hmmm, I have a gazillion HST in my stash, they are what I use for L/E when I have nothing in mind. Maybe there is an Ocean Waves in my future.

  4. Goodness, you’ve been busy! It’s great to see the finished wedding quilt – that is beautiful.

  5. Quick…sew night and day so you’ll be ready for the mystery!

  6. Wow…so many great projects, finished and in the works! I like working on several things at once. No chance of getting bored, for sure! lol

    That Ocean Waves is going to be a stunner!

  7. I, too, bounce around from project to project. You’ve gotten a lot done this week. Lots of inspiration here. Thanks.
