Design Wall Monday


After I finished Labyrinth I needed something easy to work on.  I had a number of stripe fabrics that I really want to make Autumn Blaze (Oct/Nov 11 Quilt Magazine).   And last week was the week for that quilt.  I had just enough for 9 blocks and the binding. The blocks were big, 15 in.  I added some borders to look like stripes.  The back is all my left over flannel, pieced together like stripes.  Calling this one "Fun with Stripes".  I was finally able to use my bobbin cam for a panto.  Oh goodness what a difference that makes!  being able to do the panto from the front is so much better for me.  I gained better control when I started using the micro handles.  I still need to practice, but at least now I feel like someday I'll get there.   This is the same pattern I want to use on Beach Glass.  I took the picture before the binding was put on while there was still sunlight. It's all done now.  This will be donation quilt number 3.

And speaking of Beach glass, I used the left over strings and made some blocks.  15.5 blocks!  Guess I just don't know how to estimate the number of strings needed for anything :)  Not sure what I'll do with them but it was nice to have both of these easy projects.

UPDATE:  Made in Cherry - done.  I made mine with charm squares (not cut down) so mine is  a little bit bigger.  I'm going to use this for one of the guest beds in our house.

  3. Just love your beach glass! Those colors are yummy! There is definitely a quilt in those colors in my future!

    The yellow is nice with Made in Cherry - the orange would have spiced it up too, but yellow is a happy color!

  4. Wow, your quilts are all so different. I love that. And your quilting looks great. So, what is a bobbin cam? Where can I get one? I would love to do all my quilting from the front.
