Design Wall Monday

Rarely do I take a quilt to the quilter. Most of you have seen this quilt in progress. The binding was put on last month.  The fabric was a splurge quite a few years ago…the spending of a birthday gift certificate.  It is one of the few quilts that went to the quilter.

It turned out so well.  This matches my living room.   It is hard to tell if it just needs to be broken in, or if it is too large.  It seems so awkward and just a little crunchy on the back of the couch.  It is also very hard to get a good photo of this.  The light and dark don’t like to play well with no flash or a flash.  This one is pretty true to the look of it.

All the blocks are complete.  This quilt is based on Judy L.’s “The Brown Quilt”.  The border fabric is still in debate.  The LQS thinks the coloring of the planned brown batik is off…it is just a plain brown batik…how off can it be. 
Other Design Wall’s can be seen at Judy’s “The Patchwork Times”.
Happy quilting.
Just Another Quilter


  1. Love the blue & brown quilt. You did a great job!


  2. Your first quilt is exquisite; so rich looking and an intriging pattern! The one on the design wall is going to be lovely too. ---"Love"

  3. Your blue and brown quilt is so pretty! I like the colors together! The one on your design wall is going to be great, too. Can't wait to see it finished. Enjoy!

  4. I really like both quilts; but I especially like how the second quilt changes from dark on light to light on dark. I think an overall composition makes a quilt more interesting.
