Design Wall Monday

I'm posting a little late today as I forgot to either upload my photos ahead of time or bring my camera with me to work.  My sewing goals changed a little during the week.  I did not get the remaining 3 borders on the Memorial Day Quilt.  I did make the BOM but did not sew it into the partial row.

However, I did get my Cathedral Stars quilt blocks placed in their new home and labeled the rows.  I have also sewn 6 ofthe 11 diagional rows although the photo doesn't show that.

I forgot that my scrap quilting club was meeting.  So Tuesday and Wednesday during lunch I cut my fabrics.  On Friday I made two blocks to take with me as a demo.  On Saturday and Sunday I worked diligently on this quilt top; did not want to put it up in pieces.  This is a distorted photo as I want to keep it a surprise for you blog hopper until the group meets next month.  I really like my distorted photo; maybe I should try that, huh. It's a free pattern online and I'll give you the details next month.  I have the rows pieced and 2 of the 5 borders have been added to the top.

I will give you a sneak peak of the project we will start in July.  I saw a video for this and decided this would be a great one to use strips.  It has a creative way of cutting that will be a great learning experience for the group.  Here is the makings of one larger block where the quarters haven't sewn together yet.

  1. Hi Tea! I always look forward to your Monday posts! Great job.

  2. Love the Cathedral Stars and the new block looks intriquing. I'm anxious to hear about the new way of piecing it.

  3. Cathedral Stars is gorgeous. Love your July project, makes a most interesting block. Your scrappy quilt makes me curious. How did you do it? It is wonderful.
    Great work here. Love seeing it. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a super great day.
