Monday Morning Design Wall 8/20/2012

  Happy Monday!!  I have all my Mimi's Bloomers blocks up on my wall.  The latest one was posted on Friday and I have yet to get to it!  It will be this week so that will be fun.  I also finished my Miss Kyra top, also by Erin Russek.  I do love her designs but I did switch up the border a bit adding a few more Dresden Plates. I worked on the borders, and only the borders, for 8 straight hours on Sunday.  It was a DO OR DIE TRYING day, either I finished the borders or I scrapped them and started over!!  I am not unhappy with it but I think I need to look at it hanging on the wall to get use to the corners!  I am planning on hand quilting the half Dresden Plate bocks into the empty border spots to keep the theme....I like the idea of that!!   On to more projects that I can finish up, I am hoping to get so much more done over the next month and clean up some of these UFO's!!! Remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls!!


  1. What a great border idea. And, I can see why it took so long. Are you going to add flowers? And I really like your Mimi's Flowers. I still have not even looked at the patterns for that but maybe when the chickens are all caught up I will as they will be so different.

  2. Oh Wow!! Fabulous!! Both of them.

  3. I love the setting for your Dresden Plates.......just gorgeous. And so are your Mimi's Bloomers blocks. I love Erin's patterns and techniques.

  4. I love both of these! The colors are so bright and cheery.

  5. WOW!!!!!! They are beautiful.............

  6. What a great way to put Dresden Plates together. The applique blocks are amazing -- hand or machine?

  7. Those Dresden Plates are WONderful with the appliqued flowers/leaves! And I LOVE all Erin's designs too--but I don't have to make them because I can just look at the beauties YOU DO! Great stuff, Jennifer!

  8. Both are the border idea you created!

  9. So many pretty things to see...enjoyed my visit.

  10. I love your Dresden Plates. Great idea to extend then into the border.
