Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s on My Design Wall


Hey, hey. There’s a change on my design wall this week. Ok, not much of one, but I’m not using the same picture.  Last week I took down the Sew Scrappy blocks as I made more progress on the Red Disappearing 9-Patch.  Show me the progress you say?


Those 4 huge 9-patches will become 12 DP9 blocks.  The stack in the top right corner are 52 blocks waiting to go up on the wall.  I still have 10 more big 9-patches to sew together.  Of course my wall is not big enough for the whole quilt – 11 x 13 blocks – so I’m not sure how I’m going to lay it out.  May just sort the 4 matching blocks into 4 sections and make sure each section looks good.

I started the Tumbler leader/ender Challenge quilt on July 1st as well.  I’ve repurposed the strips I had cut for Rectangle Wrangle to cut tumblers using my Dresden Plate ruler.


My tumblers are 2-1/2″ tall and so far I’ve got 12 pairs made. I want to be able to mix the colors up in the quilt and so far most the ones I’ve made are red.  My guess is that after the first of the year I’ll start sewing them into rows once I have ton of pairs made.  I need over 1100 tumblers for a small lap quilt and twice that many for twin.  I have 24 sewn together.

See what other are working on over at Patchwork Times.

One Thought on “What’s on My Design Wall

  1. Oh MY! You are really going to have a lot of sewing to do for the tumbler quilt. What size are you aiming to make? Good luck.
