Design Wall Monday

My design wall is empty and it's time to finish something.  Three weeks ago I started sewing these 1" half square bonus triangles together. (Don't know about bonus triangles? Check this post at Quiltville.) The mini quilt top was then put aside.  Yesterday was time to work on it.  I already had the back and batting cut, it just needed layered and quilted. So I did.

If you enlarge the photo, you can see light lines in the border corners.  I marked that with a black Frixion and it left that faint white mark after ironing it to make it disappear.. I thought about putting buttons in the corners but instead, I just hung it up right here on the door of the computer cabinet and honestly, I cannot see the lines now.  But be careful, test your marking pens on scrap fabric.  Do not trust that the marks will disappear.

What's on your design wall?  Check Patchwork Times and see what others are working on.

Merry Christmas.

Your little quilt is adorable Judy! I've heard that the Frixion pens will leave a wax line on darker fabrics. I'm glad yours have faded :*)

How cool to have it "off" the design wall and quilted and done! I love this little quilt of pinwheels!...my fave! Merry Christmas to you, Judy.

What a cute way to use your bonus triangles. Is this for your granddaughter's doll?

Good tip about marking pens.

I have found that if you wash the quilt, the leftover gel from the Frixion pen will disappear. Hope this helps.

I love the little quilt!

I'm making a little top with "bonus triangles" and I hope it turns out as cute as yours. Hoping you have a wonderful, blessed Christmas.
