WIP


Swirling water is the design I decided to use on my last block.This is one of Leah Day's 365 designs. Not to bad, although I need a little practice on swirls...**hint hint, Leah**

This is the first time I have actually used my design wall. Well, for a whole quilt anyway. I normally have a cutting table up against here, which with the things stored beneath, can be a pain to move sometimes. Oh, do you like my lighting(aka Christmas lights)?? I know it's not ideal, but for $8.oo and a quick fix of a very dark corner of the room, it actually helps!!


My binding strips are all cut and almost ready to sew. I still have to iron the 1 1/2 in strips in half.  So, do you all think I am crazy for picking out this fabric vs. black?  I'm still holding my breath as to whether it will look good or not. I just have a feeling I will like it.

I printed out this picture to cut up into squares to see if I will like another color layout. As is, not sure. This is a little trick I picked up on Elizabeth Hartman's  Creative Quilt Backs Craftsy class. So ya, I have been busy this afternoon. I'm excited to get this LAST UFO done!

  1. Shucks, you're swirls look better than mine! I'm loving those bright color panels. It reminds me of a paint chip collage. Cool!

    1. Ha ha! Thanks, but I beg to differ;) It was starting to get hard to find a color I didn't have already.

  4. I think the binding will be fun. Black would really make a statement, but I think this will be interesting without being pushy about it's presence. If that makes sense.

    1. I had the fabric for both, but I'm on solid overload! I need a print!

  5. I really like that pixelated fabric, I think it will tie the squares together better than a solid colour would. I'm amazed at how much you've been able to get done in the past few weeks!
