It’s been a while since I’ve posted a “Design Wall” post. So here goes!
I’m in the process of quilting “Love Letters.” I’m entering it in the show this coming weekend – sew …. the quilting needs to be finished. I did some ruler work (see in the pink triangles?) and that took a LOT of time. Quilting the swirls is going much faster! However, if I quilt for too long, my thumb on my right hand hurts. So, I’m trying to quilt this in 10-15 minute segments. The border and binding are already done – so it’s just the blocks that I need to finish. I’m hopeful that it will be finished by Wednesday!
Fractured Paint Box
This is one of my UFO’s in progress. It’s a Judy Niemeyer pattern. This is my 4th quilt using this pattern. Yes, it’s a paper piecing pattern, but a dear friend taught me how to paper piece without sewing on the paper … and so I can re-use the pattern. And I must admit – this pattern is very easy to adapt to this method of non-paper-piecing. This pattern also uses a jelly roll – so it’s a wonderful way to use my beautiful batik jelly rolls that are languishing in my stash!
