Monday Design Wall, May 24, 2010

My design wall has not changed. I refuse to take it down until it is finished. Several more blocks have been cut out, along with more applique pieces. Although it is hard to see, there is a lot of 3-deminsional work involved.

First, I will make the next 5 pillowcases. Our LQS, The Quilting Niche, collects the pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge. I use one of my spare sewing machines to break from the quilting every so often. However, when I add the special stitching on the cuff, I will have to move the quilting over.

And this is why I have not accomplished much on the design wall. I am still quilting the top. I have decided to hang this quilt in my dining room. I love the colors and my dining room needs a fresh new look.

For more design walls, visit Judy at Patchwork Times! I won't be home until VERY late tonight, but I know where I will be eventually.....taking a look at all the other design walls.
