Design Wall Monday

Last week's design wall(floor) stayed that way until yesterday. I wanted to have a post for today, so I got busy after spending the afternoon at the movie, seeing "The Help" with Janet and Randy. It was a great movie!

I took apart the 12" rows and added 6-8" pieces to make up the needed space. I used that butterfly backing fabric for the corners.

I may just load this one and quilt it today.



It was 11pm when I finished and Dan was in bed, but I was wide awake, so I pulled out the blocks for Jeff and Dané's new king size quilt and started sewing them together.



This is how far I got before the stroke of midnight and my signal that it was time for bed. The black horizontal strips are not sewn to the rows yet, just wanted a peek at how it was going to look.

I don't know what it was about last night, but I know several of us that couldn't sleep last night. I love your quilts. That black and red is just striking.

Those are both great quilts, and I especially love the blue/green sample one. It is beautiful.

We're going to rename you the energizer bunny! Could you send some of your motivation my way? Both quilts are great.

I enjoyed seeing The Help also!
I really like that inner dark/narrow border on this quilt...it really helps "organize" all the blocks. I hope I remember this idea when putting together a lot of different blocks.
