Design Wall Monday 12/31/12

I couldn't pass up the last design wall Monday, seems like it's been months since I've actually had something on the design wall.

And look at this, all caught up with Easy Street.  The colors are the same colors I used for Orca Bay and this is the first time that I'm using Bonnie's colors, mostly because I LOVE the color palette and hey I had everything.   I almost thought about swapping the purple out for Red but then I really didn't have anything dark enough and though it would be too many mid range colors so I stuck to the original.  Now I have a gazillion squares to trim up :)  It felt so good to start something new, it's been so long.

And what would New Year's Eve be without a recap of 2012, while I didn't achieve all my goals the two most important to me were achieved.  I did make more quilts for great cause (9 this year which is 2 more than last year)  and I also started quilting for QOV, I think I ended up quilting 10 quilts for QOV and really that is my favorite part.  The other goal was to get proficient at the long, while I wouldn't necessarily say I feel proficient, I am satisfied with the progress made.  So all in all I call 2012 a great quilting year.

Wishing every one a wonderful and safe 2013!!


  1. Nice to see more EASY STREET pieces on DWM. Yea, We start making parts of blocks and finish tomorrow. Good to be all caught up. I'm working on the last cutting so I can sew a couple triangle blocks together before years end. Happy New Year! You accomplished A LOT!

  2. I love the colours you have chosen for Easy Street and can't wait to see the beautiful quilting you will add to it.

  3. Congrats on all the finishes for 2012. All of them are gorgeous!


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
