Design Wall Monday-January 30, 2012

Well I must be psychotic psychic. I chose the quilt I wanted to finish, and Judy chose it as the quilt for the UFO challenge for February. Great minds and all...

I don't know which number Judy is going to pick for the UFO Challenge in February, but I think I'm going to work on this one. It should be pretty quick, because the star of the quilt is the fabric and pattern, who cares about the quilting. I'll probably just do diagonal lines or something. Maybe a light green backing fabric--perhaps fleece if I can find it, or maybe the blue. I might have some blue that would work.

I really like this quilt, and think I might make another couple of them. I have plenty of fabric for stack n whack, though this is officially a one block wonder. I started it in 2009 and finished it in November of that year. Here is the original fabric, before the whacking!

Wow Mary, that is gorgeous - I think you're right, though, you wouldn't even notice the quilting. Go for it!

i wouldn't do straight lines for the quilting, it might take away from the pattern of the quilt, I would just do meandering or loopdeloops or swirls to keep the movement moving

Wow! This quilt just knocks my socks off....

I've taught the One Block Wonder class over 30 times and yours is one of the best I've seen!! Beautiful!! I agree with Ann Marie: do a great big meander rather than straight lines for quilting.

Absolutely beautiful!!! The original fabric was gorgeous, and the final quilt is as well. You did a great job!!

Susan said...

Your one block wonder is beautiful!

This is one of my all-time favourites. (What about periwinkle for the backing?)

This is gorgeous! I love the one block wonders and the SNW - so addicting, isn't it??

Chris said...

Yours is the loveliest OBW I've ever seen. Picking that vertical fabric really made your blocks look like stars. I might just try one now.

That is too cool!!! I would have never expected the quilt to turn out like that using that floral.... beautiful!!
