I love Design Wall Monday! It's my favorite blog day of the week.
This was my design wall as of last night--then I took it down to sew the borders on this morning. This has been my leader/ender project on and off for the last few weeks. My 2 1/2" bin was overflowing. Now I can shut it.
I saw a quilt almost like this at Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid and bookmarked it knowing that someday......this is a perfect 9 patch and 4 patch quilt. After emailing and asking if she minded if I copied, I printed her picture to use as a guide. When the 4 and 9 patches were made, it went together really fast.
After seeing the picture, I don't like the 9 patch in the corner and I don't like the way the fabrics meet on the other corner. I think I am going to try may hand at mitered corners. And then to the yardage bin for some backing fabric. I am going to try freehand baptist fans like Mary does on this quilt.
Grab a cup of something to drink, head over to Judy L's at Patchwork Times and see what everyone else has on their design wall. I love Mondays in blogland.
