What’s on my Design Wall May 9, 2011

Posted by Pam in KC in Challenges, designwall.

There’s several quilts on my “design ironing board” today.

First is this stack of quilts (5 of the 10 by June).  The middle one I’m still working on the binding. The one below it and the one on top are ready for binding.  The bottom quilt I need to quilt the borders.  The second one down – well, it has some issues and will be meeting the seam ripper as soon as I figure out how much needs to be ripped.

But quilting was not all that I got done this past week.  I finally got all of the fabric cut out for the Crossword Puzzle quilt.

I can’t decide if the color is good on this picture or not.  As I was finishing up the cutting, I was grouching to myself about how “orange” the fabrics were.  I had a fluorescent light shining on them.  I cut that off and turned on my Daylight light and the color improved immensely.

The strips will be sewn into sets of 4, then they’ll be cut with the Go! cutter as well.  Only then will I be able to start assembling blocks.  This quilt is the next one that has to be completed, so it becomes the priority.

I had to stay up until you posted. I’m happy for your progress. Half way to your goal. Don’t have too much fun with the Seam Ripper. The reds look red to me! I look forward to seeing the top come together. Hope your Mother’s Day was great.

A crossword puzzle quilt? Hmm, sounds just like ME!! Can’t wait to see it when it’s done.

Intriguing! Love all the reds.

Your pile of quilts is to be envied 🙂
