Design Wall Monday-March 25, 2012

Here is a sketch of the quilting I'm using on this quilt. I got the idea from Suzanne Early's book and it is very loosely based on a pattern she drew.



I had to trim the borders a bit because I didn't buy quite enough fleece to back it, but otherwise it's the same. I tried to get some pictures of the quilting I've completed, but I never take pictures in the sunlight, so they stink. If you click on the picture below, you might be able to see something.

The colors in this picture are actually closer to reality than those above. I'm quilting in columns, and have finished four. I think I'll do the borders the same way and call it good. This is my April UFO for Judy's challenge and I almost didn't make it because I got stuck on the feathers I was quilting on the charity quilt and wasn't doing anything because I wasn't happy with the way it was looping. I finally decided I wanted to get something DONE, so pinned this one and now I'm quilting it.

While I was avoiding the feathers, I also made a cord bowl.











For this one I used un-dyed cord, and plan to dye it later. The bowl is an oval about 10 x 8 and about 5 inches tall.



 I plaited the cording on the top with 4 strands (I had to look up directions for that) then sewed it on by hand. I don't know what colors I'm going to use yet, or what it is going to be for, but I enjoyed making it.

I really like the arrangement of your 4-patch. The light shines from the middle of the quilt.
