Monday Design Wall

Heather and Megan are hosting a simple Block of the Month project over at Quilt Story. I have been having so much fun with my new quilting machine, I forgot to post my April Blocks with HSTs above -- shown with March blocks. Leaves and Diamonds showcase the HSTs from an original design by Marcia Hohn at The Quilters Cache.

Finished except for the hand work, Stars Over Scott in Red is done -- the 2nd Finish of the Year, and the 2nd Finish on my new Gammill. I am sticking to my favorite patterns so I can get used to the feel of the machine -- it is very different than a home machine (obviously), but similar in movements.
The top is done for the H2H Challenge hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I hope to be quilting it by the weekend -- however I need to finish the Relay for Life Quilt Below.
Dance of the Tiger is almost done -- After I finish the borders, I am moving it to my Janome for simple straight stitching. I need more practice before on straight lines (even with the ruler, it will take time). I will post the last step for this quilt -- adding the borders --- later this week.

For more design walls, visit Judy at Patchwork Times.

Wow. This is all so beautiful. I esp. love the purple, orange, and green leaves together and the purple quilt on your machine. Just gorgeous and very rich looking.

Love that Dance of the Tiger quilt. But then, purple IS my favorite color. How I would LOVE a Gammill.I keep dreaming...No place to put it just yet....
