2010 BOM

Here is The February block of our 2010 BOM, King Tut's Crown.

Design Wall Monday

Here's what's on my design wall today. I started this quilt last March (yikes!). The only thing left to do is the borders and quilting. I put it aside for a while because I couldn't decide on green or purple for the sashing. Since I chose purple I will put green on the back.

This is a scrappy Irish Chain quilt I just finished quilting. I used a ruler to quilt diagonal lines on my longarm for the first time. The beginning is a mess but by the end I could see a definite improvement in my quilting.

The last time I showed this quilt it was just a top. I quilted it with an all-over butterfly pattern from Willow Tree Studio. I even hand-sewed the binding. I usually do binding all by machine but I felt this quilt deserved something special.
