Design Wall Monday 10-26-15

The focus this last week has been on the Tumbler quilt – and it is finished.  The quilting was completed on Wednesday, Thursday I trimmed and sewed on the binding, and by noon on Sunday the hand stitching was done.  This is the largest quilt that I have machine quilted myself and I am so happy to have a new winter bed quilt.

102615A (1024x949)The picture is taken from the upstairs looking down into the living room.  It was the only place to lay it out for a photo shoot.

And since I had so much fun with the backing, here is a picture of it.  I am very pleased with the end result.

102615B (1024x941)During the breaks from the hand-stitching, I pulled out this small wallhanging (17″ x 23 1/2″) and stitched in the ditch.

102615C (753x1024)This little quilt was pieced in 2013 and the name of the pattern is Oh My Stars.  Once the sleeve and binding are completed, this will be my 21st finish for the year.

Oh yeah – this is a design wall post!  I decided to take a break from the star quilts and finish the leader/ender quilt top.  The pattern is Thirty Something from the June 2015 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting although my quilt’s name will be Scrappy Something since I didn’t use 30’s fabric.  The reason that this project was temporarily pushed aside was because I need to do a count to see exactly where I was.

102615 (1024x240)This is the top row and part of the second row.  I have been busy cutting out the triangles need for the blocks in the second row, so then it should go together quickly.
