Design Wall Monday

I make progress on all my projects this week.  I made more siggy blocks for the wedding quilt and finished piecing the blocks for the Cathedral Stars quilt.  I have a layout in mind for the siggy blocks and will continue making the remaining squares needed this week.  I will layout the Cathedral Stars blocks and mark the rows; this should be farily easy as I used many different fabrics so they shouldn't meet up too much.  I also think I'm going to change the setting triangles a little to finish off the design in the border.  "I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!"  Let's see...I only pieced 1,852 pieces for this quilt so far...

I do have a photo of the Memorial Day Quilt top in progress.  I added 3 borders since last week.  I still need to add 3 more plain borders to finish the top.  I changed the corner squares a little to make them "turn" the corner more smoothly by adding another flip square to each block.

On Saturday I collected block 11 of 12 from The Quilted Fox shop BOM.  We are making the same block but with different asian fabrics.  Here is an updated photo of my setting where I added another row this week.  On Sunday I cut the pieces for block 11 but didn't get around to piecing it.  So this week I hope to sew this block and add as much of row 4 as I possible can.  Thay way my top is almost finished; just waiting on block 12 next month.

  1. Tea, I love the your sashing for the Quilted Fox BOM. It really sets the blocks off nicely.

  2. Both quilts are fab but my favorite is the Quilted Fox.....that secondary design really makes the entire quilt look difficult and intricate.

  3. very pretty and I really like the sashing idea too, very original and a great stash buster!!!

  4. I really like the sashing on your bom. Great idea.

  5. Your memorial quilt is wonderful! I like the blue you have in the last border...really sparkles that border.
