Design Wall Monday 8-25-14

One of my main goals this last week was my hexie project.

082514   (768x1024)All the gold hexies are completed and the only thing left is the black pathway.  There are a couple of wool projects calling my name, but I am resisting until this project is completed.

I have also been working on a small pieced wallhanging.  At the last quilt guild meeting, I was gifted with a charm pack.  I was thinking about a block or pattern for the charms and I had a “light bulb” moment – a Disappearing 9 Patch literally.

082514A   (806x1024)Not what you expected, right?  I love it – it makes me laugh every time I look at it.

Wouldn’t this be cute as a baby quilt with the baby’s name across the top?  This quilt is 28″ x 36″ with the squares for the 9 patches cut at 2″.  It would be so easy to increase the size of the quilt by increasing the size of the squares.

The plan is to gift this project back to the person who gave me the charms, but I think that I will need to make another one for me.

Check out all the other quilting inspirations at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.
