Design Wall Monday--April 23, 2012

On my design table today are four projects--oy vey!


Here is a mock up of one of the 17 table toppers I'm making for DD Elaine's husband's brother's wedding on May 4th.  That is a lot of nouns for one sentence, don't you think?


Pieces and parts for Jewel Box blocks--the April UFO--ready to be fed under the needle.


Layout for a table runner for the soon-to-be-wedded mentioned above.  Since this photo the blocks have been sewn together, and borders and backing selected.  This needs to get done in a hurry!


Finally, I get to share a FINISH!  I put in the last of the hand quilting stitches on the plane from Louisville to Las Vegas.  This is my version of Lori's (Humble Quilts) Strawberry Fields quiltalong from a couple of years ago. 

My stitches are not small but I tried to at least make them uniform.  Someday I will have to learn to use a hoop and a thimble.  But I am very happy to have this little project, which I call Patriotic Fields, ready to decorate my table or wall for the appropriate holidays.  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

So many projects in the works! The finished quilt is beautiful. I always love the look of hand quilting. It makes a quilt seem special.

Wow you have so much going on, I love the quilts. Hand stitching was something I loved to do but alas my fingers can't do it anymore. Your stitches are great!!
