Design Wall Monday - A New Start

>> Monday, February 28, 2011

My design wall is full this morning! The top block is Block 9 for the Layer Cake Quilt Along. I still need to sew it together - and make my second one! The fabric line is Prayer Flag by April Cornell. It has lots of paisleys and I love it!

The bottom of my design wall has all the cut out pieces for a little wallhanging. It's from the 1998 Quilt Sampler magazine. Yes, I did write 1998!! I have wanted to make this little quilt - actually ALL the projects in this issue - and finally rewarded myself by starting. It was designed by Jan Patek.

I had pulled the fabrics several months ago when Pat Sloan was doing her UFO busting tips. Now it is all cut out and I will work at pinning them onto the background so I can do this as handwork while watching the next sport on TV - hockey playoffs and baseball:)

My other design wall still has liberated churn dashes on it. I will not have this quilt done by Friday! But, I did finish quilting one more panel this morning. It measures 30.5 inches square {or close to it} That's 4 of 9 completed.

Check out some more Monday Design Walls through the links at Judy's blog.

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Your churn dashes look great. I think the whole quilt will look awesome when you are done.

Block 9 is beautiful, I have the jelly roll of Prayer Flag and just love it.

I love your liberated churn dashes. Both the colors and the liberated piecing are interesting and beautiful.

The folk art quilts never goes out of style. Why save all those magazines if you don't use the OLD patterns too. I pick up the old Quilting mags whenever I can.

I love the Prayer Flag line, which I just became aware of, paisleys are great! The churn dash block panels are just gorgeous. Hope you get them all done in due course.
