Design Wall-Week 19

19 weeks of Design Wall Monday. I think when I have a minute, I'm going to go back and see if I've made any progress.

This week's wall has my Freeze Frame, Quilt For An Hour from The Fabulous Judy L of Patchwork Times. (Instructions can be found on Judy L's website.) Today is Hour 11 that adds the next border. (edited to add that I finally read the directions and I'll be adding 2 borders today--easy peezy) I am really loving the borders. I'm glad today is a simple day, I have fabric for a new bathrobe and I want to cut that out sometime today.

Beside Freeze Frame is my newest leader/ender project ala Bonnie at Quiltville. My second photo is my little flannel design wall that sits behind my machine. I started using 2 1/2" squares, sewing them together, turn them into 4 patches and 9 patches.

Then I started cruising blogland. That is how I found Pam's Quilting and Stuff by Knitoid, I started reading, going to older posts, reading, more older posts until I found this post of her fabulous Quilting Studio Tour. After wiping the drool from my face, I continued on until I found this post with a UFO that was screaming at me to make it. It will work perfect with my 4 and 9 patches that I've been making with no purpose. So I emailed Pam, asked if she minded if I copy her and she doesn't care, told me the name of the blocks and I went to work, I had to make a few blocks--just to be sure.

I feel lucky to have "met" so many wonderful friends via the internet. I always think of how much my Gramma Maple would have loved the internet. I can see her cruising blogland and making sweet comments to all of her new friends. So why don't you cruise on over to Patchwork Times and see a sneak peek at the next Quilt For An Hour and see what my friends are working on.

I love the Sister's Choice block - one of my favorite. I enjoy seeing your blog and what you are working on.

You are an overachiever...keeping up with Judy's postings LOL!!
Your quilt looks great...I think you should call it FFF which is short for Floral Freeze Frame!!
