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.

Love those quilts you are working on. Was going to say I liked the top one best, then took a closer look at the others, and now I can't decide, they are all terrific.

Both your quilts are lovely. I really like the colours of each of them. Lovely.

Great colors! I have a love/hate relationship with borders. They take so much time to get perfect but when they are good, they are great. Sometimes not needed and I and use the time to work on another project!
