Design Wall Monday

Last week was a holiday all week and I got a lot done. I worked on my english paper piecing, visitied my daughter for Thanksgiving and finished the following quilts. The first is the one I showed last week, I call it Kaffe's Arrowhead. I decided to make it slightly larger than my original plan so I had to make 21 additional blocks. Final measurement is 93 x 93.
Next I put the borders on the top quilt pictured. This quilt is a gift for my CDW sales rep, who is having a baby next month. On the bottom is the same pattern done in the scraps from Kaffe's Arrowhead. The pattern is called Belgian Waffles and I originally saw it on the Moda Bake Shop blog.

The final product. Instead of setting triangles I made half blocks for the edges. I couldn't decided what color to use for the triangles. Last night I was considering no borders but this morning it seems so busy that borders will calm it down. I will have to see if I have enough yardage left. These two projects used up most of my stash of early Kaffe Fasset prints and shot cottons.

Design Wall Monday

Here's what's on the wall today. I was at a retreat last month and made a baby-size Anita's Arrowhead, from Rotary Cutting Revolution. I liked the method so much when I got back I started this quilt.

It's older Kaffe Fassett prints and shot cottons. This quilt will finish at 85" x 85".
