Design Wall Monday August 9, 2010


Sorry, I've done it again. Not posted correctly on Judy's site. I WILL FIGURE THIS OUT! What a way to start a Monday.


Well another Monday is here and I'm exicted to share my latest project. Last Monday I had planned to sandwich and begin quilting on one of my already finished quilt tops. However, a panel I had seen at my local quilt shop turned my attention toward a new project altogether. I bought two of the four panels that were available. Trimmed up they each measure 20"x22". Nothing is set in stone yet but I plan to frame them to measure 24"x28" and then surround them with 4" broken dishes blocks. I am not following a pattern so the final quilt should be a surprise to all of us.

Be sure to see all of the other design walls at Patchwork Times.

Great idea. Are you going for a wall hanging or a bed quilt?

Gari to answer your question, I am sure this will end up being queen size. I try to make lap quilts but never can stop at that size. However, it will probably take about 350 broken dishes blocks to make a queen and as of today I only have about 100 so we'll see.
