Design Wall Monday


My version of Bonnie Hunter's Smith Mountain Morning has made it from the wall to the bed. However, what can't be seen from this picture is that it barely reaches the edges of the bed.  That didn't come as a surprise.  I knew that was going to be the case when I saw the finished quilt size given in the pattern book.  I just needed to decide if it was going to be a bed quilt or one to be hung from the wall.  And the bed wins.  So now it's back to cutting and piecing more blocks. Which is really what I like to do anyway.  Maybe that is why it's so hard for me to do a lap quilt. I'd rather be piecing.

Check out all of the great design walls at

I have to figure out how you all do that link thing.

Have a great day.

It's a beautiful quilt! I can see why you'd want it to be big enough for your bed.

I'd call it "Go Tell It On the Mountain" -- wonderful colorway!
It took me a long time to figure out how to do the link. If you are writing a new blogpost, look at the toolbar at the top of the "new post" form (where you can change the size of the type, insert a photo, etc.). See "link"? Click on it. A popup window allows you to put in a URL and alternate wording for it.

It's so lovely!! Don't know if I'll ever add enough blocks to my two blocks to make mine.
