On the Design Wall

Judy Laquidara at the Patchwork Times blog has started a new feature on her blog called "What's On Your Design Wall Mondays". Since I've been showing my "works in progress" since I started my blog this year, I thought it'd be fun to participate (that is, if I've got something to show).

When I posted my finishes for the "Spring Finish" yesterday, I didn't have any thing on my wall because piecing was on hold until some of the accumulated quilting had been done. But with those projects done I could back to working my Block of the Month project. This is the Joann's "Vintage Treasures" BOM from 2004. I actually bought these kits in late 2005 off of Ebay and when I couldn't get the complete set was lucky enough to find more of most of the fabrics or good substitutes at one of the stores and then drafted the remaining blocks on my own (I use Quilt-Pro).

I've been working on this project at a rate of two blocks a month because I want to finish the top by the end of this month so I can start on another BOM I have in stash and work on that for the rest of the year. I made the four blue blocks shown today and added them to their corresponding border pieces. The triangle portions will be added to the medallion center that was shown in
this post. I already have another set of blocks ready to be added to an additional set of border pieces that I need to cut (from a substitute fabric) but that will be work for another day.

BTW, my design wall is just a flannel backed tablecloth from the 99 cents store tacked to the wall with sticky tape squares. Basic but it works!Posted by Picasa
