Design Wall Monday


My blocks for the Quiltville mystery, Celtic Solstice, are finished. They are now in nice clipped together row stacks waiting for me to start sewing rows. The border pieces from clue 1 are all sewn together.


When we first found out about clue 2, I told my friends doing the mystery I thought these would be for the border. I was wrong. Not paying close enough attention, I made all left side parts. So I had to make enough right side parts to make my chevron blocks.  I put all the "extra" left side parts away thinking I might go ahead an use them for a border, depending on Bonnie's design.


Sunday I sat down and played in EQ7 to see what my quilt would like like with a few extra borders. Still not sure how to use the border section of EQ7, this is not accurate for the amount of pieces I need. I'll just to the math and figure that part out.  I like it so much that I am going to do it. Today is a good stay home and sew day.  That is after I cruise around Blogland for a while.

Today I'm linking up with Patchwork Times-Design Wall Monday and Quiltville's Mystery Monday Link-Up.

I like the additional border.

Nice way to use up those extra half pieces of Chevrons. I'd call you Crazy, but to a Quilter, that's a compliment. Way to EQ!

Love your colors. They just twinkle. I like the additional border, too. I haven't ventured in to using EQ yet, but am thinking about it. It looks like fun!

Your colors and fabrics are beautiful. I really like the additional border idea ... :)

Looks like making the chevrons wrong turned into a happy accident! Live your colors - so soft and pretty.

Judy, I love your version! Isn't it nice to be able to plug things into EQ and have an idea of what you're working with??! :)

Quilter Kathy said...

Love your colors - and your border approach to sue your extra pieces. Happy sewing in 2014!

Just beautiful Judy. Glad you have all of the blocks put together. I love that quilt and am kicking myself that I haven't even started yet.
