Design Wall Monday 08-31-15

Yeah – the Strip It: Wind quilt top is finished.

083115  (994x1024)The top measures 72″ x 78″ and as you can see it is bigger than my design wall.  I think that this quilt will look great on my bed once it is quilted.  When that will happen I am not sure since there are other projects screaming for attention.

First up is replacing the elastic in a pair of pajamas.  I started quilting after 24 years of sewing clothing and when my youngest headed off to college I started quilting.  So these pajamas were made 15+ years ago and only now do they need new elastic.  The fabric is getting a bit thin, but they are obviously well loved.  A couple of months ago I also replaced elastic in a skirt that was made when she was in high school.  It is quite amazing to me that she still has the skirt & pajamas and still wants to wear them.

The next star project is Rangeley Wall Quilt by Deb Tucker.

083115A  (1024x683)I just realized how similar the colors are in this fabric and the Strip It: Wind quilt top.  I must be in a blue/green mood.  Anyway this wall hanging is 32″ x 42″ so it should go fast once I start sewing.  I hope to start the end of this week after I machine quilt my Carolina Chain top.

    I have the Rangley pattern but haven’t made it. Let me know how it goes.

    Congrats on the flimsy finish, it looks great. That star quilt is going to look great with that fabric.

    The finished top looks great. I love all those turquoise blues. The Rangeley looks interesting. I really like Deb Tucker’s rulers and patterns.

      I have used her Hunter Star ruler which was great, but this will be the first time I have used her Tucker Trimmer. I am looking forward to testing it. Thank you for stopping by.
