Monday Morning Design Wall 10/28/2013

Ok, so my design wall is technically my living room couch...but the Hexies I am working on are too heavy to hang up on the wall as I still have paper in most of them!  I am working on a Grandmother's Flower Garden hexagon quilt and have been using my stash fabrics to start whittling down the amount of fabric I have as I am running out of space!!  Here are two of the groupings I have sewn together and I am hoping to have 12 of these groups for the entire quilt! 

So much fun to have a hand project to take with me this fall!  Remember to check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls.

Monday Morning Design Walll 10/14/2013

 Good Morning, it has been a rough few weeks for me as I am spending every spare minute machine quilting!  While cleaning out my sewing area (a corner of my bedroom) I found this old quilt.  Old as in 2003 or 2004?  I made it from a Block Of The Month Quilt Kit from Joanne Fabrics back when I first started to quilt.  This was before I was brave enough to attend the BOM at my local quilt shop!!  It is not too bad, fabric quality is HORRIBLE and the backing fabric is atrocious but I thought if I quilting it well I could give it to my daughter to use when she goes to the beach!!  I was able to get some major design work done and sewed every stinking seam in ONE DAY!!  Amazing how fast that can be done on very simple quilts.  I am using Magnifico by Superior Threads for my design work and it stands out beautifully! Should be finished in a day or two with this and then it is back to other projects.

So many quilts to quilt, so little time!  Check out Judy's blog for the rest of the design walls!
