Design Wall Monday 7.29.2013

I finished the next Framed quilt.  This one is for my friend's twin boy~arrival date: August 23, 2013.

Quilting will be next,  I also need to sew back the binding on twin girl's Framed quilt.

On a health note: I've been suffering from the flu, I think.  Achey and tired all the time.  and the bathroom was added today.  :(  

Hope I get over it sooner rather than later so I can get back to my Quilting!  :)

What I'm Working on...

I wanted a wall hanging to match my Milwaukee Pierhead Lighthouse place mats, blogged here and here

So my place mats were one inspiration and the other was a quilt I saw while trolling the internet called Turtle Twirl, picture found here. It was originally published in the September/October 2008 issue of Quiltmaker.

This is what I came up with...all stash and about 36 x 36.

Best Quilting.

 Best Theme.
Best Use of Color.
Best Borders and Bindings.

Sweet dragonflies, butterflies and fireflies on the back.

Another Cutie Quilted...

...I finished the second little cutie I took for the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild.  These cuties only take about an hour to quilt...I wonder why I procrastinated???  I don't get it???

This cutie was pieced by Heather, I think.  This one has lots of florals from my stash.  :)
