Design Wall Monday--Sept 24, 2012

On my design floor today is the second of two ongoing UFOs for the month.  Yesterday I spent about four hours working on this Any Witch Way quilt (pattern from Quiltmaker magazine, Sept/Oct 2009).  Are you guys getting tired of seeing these yet?

The last two names were put together but I ended up having to adjust Pagel because having the drop-down "g" made the name an inch taller than the other names, meaning when I added them to the quilt top the sides would not be equal.  Luckily, it was a fairly quick fix.  Having only made free-pieced letters once before, I'm pretty slow at this, but love the result.  Next time I'll work smarter along the way and be a lot faster at it!

All the witches now have their names and I'm overall really pleased with the way they look.  I'll add another small strip of the black for a final border--luckily I do have just enough of the Dimples fabric left--and then move on to the backing, quilting and binding.  Only a week left until the end of the month deadline and I'd really like to have both quilts finished!  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

Nothing like a deadline to get us moving. I'm not a fan of Halloween, but I like your witch-y quilt. Making the Word Play letters is fun!

I love the free pieced names, they add so much interest to the quilt. I have Tanya's book but haven't been brave enough (or had the time) to try it yet.

Love your witchy names. They make fun borders. Are we really that close to the end of the month? I still need to finish the borders for my Sept. UFO.
