What’s On My Design Wall? – 8/3

What’s on my Design Wall? A wider longer wall for one thing. This is a 60 x 102 tablecloth. I folded over about 19 inches at the top. This reinforces the buttonholes and shortens the tablecloth. I didn’t center it on the fireplace this time since I needed to avoid the grout. The buttonholes are spaced about 9 1/2″ apart and there are 7 of them.

The quilt is my Birthday Quilt. The blue and white Pennsylvania blocks are from a swap I did on the QIAD Forum. Last Thursday I decided I needed to work on something mindless and bigger than the 6″ blocks with lots of pieces. This was the project since it involved working on a UFO, cutting fabric, and seeing quick progress.

The stars are not in their final location. I’ve got to see how the other blue and yellow stars turn out. I also have to decide if I want to float the center or make 1/2 Pennsylvania blocks to take it to the border. Right now I’m thinking a narrow yellow border and then a wider blue border, but I’m not there yet, so who knows.

5 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall? – 8/3

  1. My first block swap quilt was also yellow and blue with 12" blocks (11 1/2" – 13"). It really was a challenge to set but when I finally figured it out is was beautiful. Last April I gave it to a 19 year old widow with three small children: I was so glad to have something really nice to comfort her.

  2. Eight pointed stars – they look great!

    I love your quilt, stars are one of my favorite patterns.

  4. This is pretty — I haven't restarted Adam's quilt yet — I keep telling myself there's just 3 more rows and a border but the center section has been just hanging over the design wall for at least 2 weeks now.

  5. Ok now that is amazing the way those blocks just stay up like that like magic lol very cool indeed…thanks for the share blessings ms
