Design Wall Monday 08-11-14

It has been a couple of weeks since my last post.  I was out-of-town babysitting four of my grandchildren.  There wasn’t much sewing going on, but lots of hugs and snuggles.

However I did get the binding completed on my little wool project.

081114  (1021x1024)This wall hanging is 28″ square.  I am very pleased with this quilt and plan to do more wool applique projects in the future.

One of the first things I did when I got home was to start cutting fabric for a new quilt.  My sewing machine had been so lonesome and I needed to give it some attention, right?

Years ago I have bought the John Flynn templates for Arabic Lattice and now it was time to – finally – use them.

081114A   (1024x1010)The gray is really more of a blueish gray and the background is navy blue.  I grouped all the light-colored blocks in the center, then shaded out to the darker blocks.  It looks much better than the picture.

The blocks are sewn together with partial seams starting with the top row and moving downward.  The plan is to get the top completed this week.

I am also working on a small D9P quilt as leaders and enders which I will show when it is done.

Check out what else is going on in the quilting world at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.
