Monday Design Wall -- New Project

A quickie little project called the "Checkerboard Twist", this pattern was published in the 2008 Winter Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts and designed by Mimi Wellington.  I started and finished the blocks in one afternoon -- VERY EASY!

All of the other projects I am working on are in line for quilting.  They will need to be sorted by deadlines and be ready for a quilting marathon.  Since the long-arm arrived, you would have thought I could keep up -- but she has only given me more reasons to start new projects.  So much fun.

Monday Design Wall links up are happening at Judy's Patchwork Times.  See ya there.

Such a pretty quilt and I can see it in so many colorways. And easy is good, too.

What a fun little quilt. I always love the use of black and white with bright colors.

sometimes quilt and easy are just what you need to have a finished boost before going back to more complicated or time consuming projects. I really like this one will have to see if I still have that issue.

What a fun quilt top! I can never get those fast and easy things done as quickly as they say :-) Enjoy the quilting on your long arm.

I really like how this turned out! I've been watching your progress and trying to decide how much I liked it, but now that I see it all together I really like it!

Very striking design. So funny that the long arm has not helped you catch up with the run away UFO's!

Cute and fast is a good thing! I find it hard to decide whether to Quilt or Piece now that I have my Mega Quilter on my Bernina Table. Wish I had a Computerized machine, but am playing with what I've got and trying to be happy about it.
