Design Wall Monday

I meant to write this post Friday. Where did the last three days go? In my defense, I did get a lot done over the weekend. I prepped quilts for the actual quilting. This is one of them:

I whipped this up from the leftovers of the next quilt. I didn't want to make enough blocks to make the other quilt larger but I didn't want to throw them away either. A lot of work went into making those circles! I only had to make two more blocks and the setting triangles to finish. I made the back from leftovers too and now it's ready to quilt.

This is ready to quilt as soon as I purchase fabric for the back. I started working on this five years ago. It feels good to be finished! I was surprised to see my dog, Roxy, in the photo. She's afraid of the camera. I think it's the noise that bothers her. Now that she's an old lady and loosing her hearing she isn't so sensitive.

Design Wall Monday

I accomplished quite a bit of quilting being on vacation the last 5 days. I finished all 12 of the drunkard's path blocks and discovered I don't have enough quite fabric to finish. I put it away until I have time to see if I can find more and I took out this old project. It's a drunkard's path variation called Millwheel. The first time I posted about it was September 2010.
