Design Wall Monday

My design wall is in layers these days as I work on a number of projects.
All the layers together gives just a glimpse of what is going on in my sewing room.  On the left in the picture below are two of the blocks for the Canadian Quilters BOM – started in January, it’s a year-long project.  The first layer in the center is two of the panels for Pumpkins and Spice (see the blog Cross-Border Quilters on my side bar)
Peeling back one layer at a time – the next layer is some of the blocks for my sampler table-topper – trying to decide on sashing and borders.  Anybody have any suggestions?
Next is a small table topper – musical instruments.  I fussy-cut a fabric I had on hand – now need to decide on a border – again looking for ideas:
Layer # 4 is a ‘story’ quilt that I’m working on – more about that when I’ve made some more decisions around how it will work:
Next up – Quilt Barn – a Joan’s Own applique that jut needs the final touches.  I’d actually forgotten about this one, underneath everything else.  Hmmm….maybe a project for this afternoon after we get the dog’s nails cut, make some deliveries, buy some groceries…
And last but not least – Row by Row.  This has sat stagnant for over a month now – top half needs quilting, and I’m waiting for the instructions for the borders for the bottom half (they weren’t ready yet the last time I was at the LQS).
That’s actually not everything – in the meantime, I’ve made a bag for my sister’s Kobo

It’s ready for mailing now – will get that out today.
Whew – lots to do – and I really need to concentrate on doing some reading if I’m going to be ready for Book Club in 3 weeks.
Happy sewing and designing!   Blessings, Peg

  1. Wow - look at you! I am doing good to work on the Pumpkins and Spice quilt. I do have the fabrics picked out for the pumpkins - and one other block - I figure if I decide on fabrics ahead of time it will give me the incentive to actually work on them when the time comes.

    I love love love the row by row quilt - I've never made one before.
