Design Wall 1/28/13

Rotation of projects is name of the game this month.  When no fabric was available for the family project, the turquoise project moved into the forefront.   When the quilt center was finished, it was time to start prepping for the class I taught last week.  The pressing instructions needed some work…so this brown top came out of the leader and ender project (1/2 square triangles) that was in the wings.  After a successful trip to the LQS, lots of fabric was purchased.  The fabric is washed and ready.  The class went well last week.  It is time to start back on the family project.

This pattern is based on Judy L.’s free pattern “The Brown Quilt”. Mine is made using a cake layer of Tonga batik prints.   I have to rework the borders just a bit.  My blocks are slightly larger and the inner border directions aren’t available. The light border needs the last 2 strips on and the corners need to be tweaked.  It is coming together nicely.  To finish it up, another light strip and a large dark border.  I can’t wait to see this done. 
Goal for the week:
Next week the top should be done.
This may not seem like much but with 2 basketball games, an auditing of books for an organization that I participate in, working 2 days,  and oh by the way, we are gutting the kitchen.  They are measuring the counter  There is a birthday in there this week, mine.

Stop over to Judy L. "The Patchwork Times" and take a look, get some inspiration, at all the design wall posssibilities.

Happy Quilting,
Just Another Quilter
