Design Wall

I am finally making progress on some of the quilts that have been UFO's or hanging out on my design wall.  I went from the few blocks in the first picture to 49 blocks in the second.
I have been working on this Log Cabin quilt for over a year.  During sewing with my friends, I laid it out on the floor and counted blocks.  I am more than half way done.  We measured out the rest of the fabric and it looks like I will just have enough of the focus fabric.  The focus fabric is this the center block of the log cabin blocks and the outer border of the quilt.

Above are my seven snowman heads for the 2014 BOM at  This is the first block of the new year.  It will be a winter themed quilt.  Join us its not too late.  I still need to add my carrot noses by applique.

Above is a pile of blocks cut out and ready to piece and the second picture is the pile I have gotten sewn.  This is a UFO that has been lost for 11 years and I have pulled it out.  Its going pretty fast as I have been using it as leaders and enders.

I have a few quilts from others to show.  Here is Carol O.'s Easy Street.
 Love the outer board and lime green flange.
Susie M. finished her grandson's Bob the Builder quilt. 
Cathy K.  got her Celtic Solstice put together.  I didn't get a picture with her borders.  Love the teal, peach, yellow an brown.
I love this selvage quilt.  I have been saving selvages to make one and really like this design.  Yes, we discovered the mistake or humility issue with this quilt.  She reversed the halves when putting together the center seam. 

Today I am linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.
Yours in quilting,


  1. Wow, you're really working your way through UFOs! Love the log cabin blocks.

    1. Thanks, Libby, this is for my best friend. We are going to use her wool batting made from her Shetland sheep that she raises.
