Design Wall Monday

This is what was on my design wall last week...my Beanie Baby Challenge for my night guild.

I selected the black and white cow as inspiration...seen here perched on Baby keeping a watchful eye!

I was only about 2 inches from the final seam when my thread ran out. I used JudyL's idea and dated my new cone so that I will be able to track the piecing thread usage.

Here is my Challenge piece. The finished size is suppose to be 36 x 36...think mine is a little closer to 37 x 37 but it should work as a preemie isolette cover. I used the red from the cupboard and the black and white are from the strings bin. I did buy backing for it and will use the extra backing as the binding.

Also a Green Bay Packer shirt which will be sewn into a quilt for my cousin...hopefully before their season ends! :)

Love the idea of a beanie bag challenge. So much fun. Of course, do we still have beanie babies hanging around?

The beanie baby quilt is so cute. Red and black is such a classic combination.

Love your black/white/red quilt. I have 2 requests for tshirt quilts. I guess I better learn how to do one!
