Design Wall Monday

Well, the Row by Row came off the wall a few days ago – backing and batting cut and ready to sandwich, and then quilt.

So up on the wall now:


These are the completed blocks for Pumpkins and Spice (see Cross-Border Quilters on my side-bar), placed on the wall approximately where they will go in the completed quilt.  This is the project that I’m doing ‘together’ with Jo at Peaceful Afternoon.  Each week we ‘chat’ and decide what we’ll do next, posting our progress on our joint blog.

I have made one change – the border on the pumpkin/cat panel bottom right, just didn’t quite work for me after I put it up on the wall, so it’s been changed.  I think I’ll change the border on the sunflower panel as well, just need to find the right fabric!  Standing alone the panel looked just fine, but now that more of the blocks are done, it’s not working for me – and nothing strikes me as being quite right in the group of fabrics I have for this quilt.

Happy spicy quilting!               Blessings, Peg


  1. It is neat to see them all up on the design wall as we are making progress. Happy stitching - and I'd better get mine photographed and on the blog soon.

  2. I see right through you. That's just an excuse to go shopping for more fabric, Peg! LOL (And a darn good one, if I may say.)
