Design Wall Monday

One of my new Focus on Four projects this week is to make the back for my RRCB quilt. I started to pull out leftover fabrics from the deer quilt so I could empty the bin. I had forgotten how big the pieces were. As I'm hanging them up I start to think this will make a great boy quilt. So the fabric will be folded up and marked for that and something else will be used up for the back of RRCB.

The block on the left is my first complete Crab Apple block. This is from Bonnie Hunter's Leader/Ender book. So far I have all the pieces sewn to make the blossoms and am now working on the paper pieced part and the border. It's been alot of fun.

UFO #6 aka Double Delight is loaded, machine is cleaned and oiled, new needle is in and bobbins are wound. I see a finish in my near future.

I agree that those would make a great boy quilt.The crab apple block is very interesting too. Keep the great work up!

The crab apple block is going to turn into a great quilt. I'm sure you will find something for the back of RRCB, the deer fabric will make a nice quilt of its own.

uh-oh piecing backing caused a new quilt top for you...inspiration lurks everywhere!!! :)
love the crab apples block!
I'm planning on loading my Jan UFO today too...I think we're in the same quilting time zone even though we're at opposite ends of the country!

How refreshing to open your blog to find all this wonderful GREEN since my world is covered with snow and spring is so very far way. Yes, this fabric has "boy" written all over it.

There are 3 of us now, in 3 different spots across the continent, planning on loading our #6 UFO's for quilting. That's my goal for today, as well, providing I don't get called to work.

Love that crab apple block. It may be my next super scrappy top after the one I am currently using as leader/enders.

The crabapple block is great. My Dad wanted a quilt with deer on it so my Mom is making one for him. He calls it "The Man Quilt." :) Your is very cool.
