Design Wall Monday--Feb 21, 2011

On my Design Floor today are two WIPs and a UFO.  Progress on the #10 UFO from Judy's Challenge is squaring up the Bear's Paw pillow top and getting it basted for hand quilting.  Only a week left to finish this UFO!
 
I failed at spacing the pattern's cable template for the border, so erased my marks as best I could. Something else will have to happen organically as I quilt!


A JoAnn's Fabric visit resulted in the purchase of flannels for the backing of the Kitchen Sink Quilt.  I sent a photo of my completed top to Kim Brackett, the designer, and she liked my version :).

Lastly, the blogaversary giveaway tablerunner was quilted and bound--the winner, Sherrill, chose the brown wicker print.  I like it!  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times blog.

Lovely little quilts, especially that bears paw. Thanks for the botanical gardens tour. I needed that. There's another 6 inches of snow in my yard overnight...grrrr

Gosh, I just love your little bear paws :) I really like the brown wicker fabric for the back of the table runner.....Sherrill chose wisely IMHO. And, wow, the designer telling you she liked your version? Isn't that the cats meow!

I hope that soon to be pillow is only for show! Excellent work with your all too tiny bear paws. From the photo you have a very good eraser. Sandi

I like the tablerunner! I this from 5" charm squares? I have a couple of shoeboxes full of charm packs and thinnk this might be a good pattern for them.
Happy Quilting!
