Monday Design Wall

Ok...here's the thing........the top below is almost finished. From the class I took in early March with Judy Laquidara, I made a smaller version of "Peaches and Dreams". I used blues, yellows, greens and whites. There are eight (8) borders. I thought I had enough of the navy blue for the last 2 1/2" border and binding ..... and of course I am short. If our LQS has enough, I'm done. If not, I am still done ... going green. My niece graduates in May, so I have a little time.



Below are four of the eight placemats I am working on --- using the HH method. The top left is sewn together and trimmed, finishing at 12" x 18". I am using up my oriental fabric stash that seemed to multiply over the last couple of years. If there is enough left over, I will make a table runner. For the quilting, I will use a straight stitch AND machine finish the binding. If any are finished by Friday - stayed tuned.

I love you quilt---looks so good, sorry about your fabric shortage, it seems to be a universal problem amoung us quilters, such a pain tho'. But I love your attitude-it's done regardless!
And I want to try that scrappy hexagon....must learn to not need sleep :)

I love the color combo of your Peaches and Dreams. Good luck with the fabric. There is always something that will work.

I love your Peaches and Dreams. It is beautiful. It is on my "Someday List". Your colour combo is wonderful.

Lovely quilt. It is so much fun to see how different a quilt can look, depending on colour choices

Love those colors you used for Peaches & Dreams. I like those placemats too. I'm going to try that HH method of piecing!

Jamie I love your colors you chose for your Peaches and Dream's quilt. I have a question. How did you post to Judy's site without putting your whole blog? I tried posting and was deleted because I didn't post right. Thanks. Liz
