October 25th, 2010 - Design Wall Monday

I’ve actually been doing a litlle quilting.

  My quilting friends and I had a 9-patch swap.  We made 35 blocks each and I had a few from a previous swap. Combined there were enough to make 4 comfort quilts along this line.  I think it looks pretty with all the different 9-patches. Some of the fabric is very unusual. Now to find a fabric from the stash for the borders. That might be a challenge. Maybe I should just make a few more 9-patches and no borders. Hmm….

 And I’ve been working on this Nancy Halvorsen design for  one of my niece’s friends. It needs borders, backing and binding.  Not what I would pick for a baby quilt but I still think it looks really neat.  All this fabric was from my stash and you can’t even tell I used some of it. The black and white drawer is still just as full as it was before. I think I could make 15 or 20 quilts before you’d notice some fabric was gone.

  Well, I’m off to vote. We need a new mayor and hopefully today’s the day we get one.

    Those are both gorgeous! I love the 9-patches. Hope you get your new mayor!

    Young mothers are picking colors that are not traditional for babies. It allows the baby to grow with the quilt. Black, red, and white stimulate the baby so it is a great quilt.
