Design Wall Monday—October 22, 2012

DSC01187 (1000x1024)I can’t believe we are already at the end of October.  We were graced with a visit from my mom and step-dad this weekend.  They left this morning to go back to Michigan. 
I managed to get the quilting and binding done on my Floral quilt.  This was a 2011 UFO that didn’t get finished.  It always feels so good to finish something.  The blues, yellows and reds in this are so vibrant.
The Christmas Traditions quilt is just about done.  The last border needs the quilting.  The thread for this last border was donated on Sunday.  Here is an older picture.  We are hand quilting it with the perle cotton thread and a larger quilt stitch, commonly called “Big Stitch” in this area. We used black thread for the small sashing and red thread on the light beige border.

Here are the items on the design wall.  This layer cake is destined to be the “The Brown Quilt” by Judy L. Stop by and see the other Design Walls at "The Patchwork Times” also by Judy L.

Happy Quilting,
Just Another Quilter


  1. I can't believe how fast October has gone too. Love your brown quilt on the design wall! Going to be a great quilt.

  2. Your floral quilt is very, very pretty! The Brown Quilt will be nice too, but a little more modern than I am. *wink* But the Christmas quilt just takes my breath away --- again! I had forgotten about it, so I'm really glad you posted it again. I hope you don't mind, but I printed just that picture. I do want to make one like it, but I won't have time for this Christmas --- maybe next year??? ---"Love"

  3. Congrats on your finishes! Doesn't it feel good?


  4. Oh, your Christmas quilt is beautiful. I can see that using colored batiks. Are those 4" squares?

  5. The blocks were made with 10" layer cake. Judy's Brown quilt finish at 8", I think.

  6. Oh no, we still have almost a whole week of October left - don't rush it, I don't like that white fluffy crud that comes out of the skies in November! Yay for a UFO finish, even if a little late. And how exciting that the Christmas Traditions quilt is nearly done. I hope you'll show the quilting when it's done because I'm curious now. (Maybe you've shown it before, though, and I just don't remember? Quite possible.)
