Design Wall Monday 10.14.2019

Today I started on my green/yellow plus quilt.

If completed on time, this will be a donation for the neighborhood fundraiser. Recently, a neighbor started treatment for brain cancer and the neighbors are getting together to help raise money for the family. Unfortunately I will be at my quilt retreat during the event, but the organizers are looking for donations to raffle off, and what? would be better than a quilt to snuggle under?!

Of course, I started by cutting a few 5 inch squares.

Next, the layout begins. I chose to cut into my greens and use yellow as the background. (hint hint: I live in Wisconsin and it IS football season!)

I'll have to design in two segments as:

1. my wall is not big enough and
2. I'm short...

pattern: combination of many found on the internet:

My Pinterest board contains my inspirations.

Design Wall Monday 9.30.2019

My nephew and his wife had their second baby about 2 weeks ago. I was a little surprised as I thought the baby was due closer to October but...I guess, babies arrive when they arrive!

So...I dug into my box of novelties, as is my tradition for newborns, and stated piecing this quilt. I love to use the Warm Wishes pattern. The rails are the same fabric on either side of a different fabric. Blue was my chosen color as the baby is a HE! I think I  did either pink or purple for his older sister.

Here are all the pieces ready to be sewn together.

pattern info: Warm Wishes

I made a few adjustments over the years:

1. I add (usually) more blocks to create a bigger quilt
2. I use all 2.5 inch strips for my rails...
     its just easier cutting for me. :)

Work in Progress...

First comes the Frankin' Batting. I'm all out of my batting tape so zig zag - ing the batting for this quilt.

Second comes the quilting. Large scribbles panto, of course!

Third comes the binding.

I'm really liking my binding baby. She was a little pricey but actually worth it! In my opinion...
