Design Wall Monday

Well, the new design wall has been put to great use this week.  As you’re reading this, we’re actually in Alberta visiting our kids – but I delayed posting of the quilting work done.

Here’s what’s on the wall

1. Elements for Myra’s Mystery Quilt-a-long:002

I’m actually all caught up now with the 3 blocks of my choice, a whole pile of 4-patch blocks, and the latest, these Shaded 4—patch:003

There are 24 of these altogether in various combinations of all of the fabrics for this project.  I kind of like this block – Myra showed a way of making it without making a whole bunch of triangles!  This is only the 3rd step so, if you want to join in, I’m sure there’s still time – just head on over to Tactile Pleasures – in Fabric and follow the link on her sidebar.

On the other side of the ‘wall’ are the elements completed so far for Down Winterberry Lane that Jo and I are doing over at Cross Border Quilters.


Pinwheels, ornaments, gift boxes, and some candy cane – lots of fun.  Jo is away right now – but I’ll post some more detail of all of this next week after we get home.

Happy wall elements!                   Blessings, Peg
