Design Wall Monday 01-23-17

The blocks for New York Beauty is on my design wall today.  This is another top that is pieced with a Paula Nadelstern fabric line.

Here is the pattern picture.

The blocks don’t look like much now, but I am thinking (hoping) that they will perk up when the borders are added.

Yesterday I also pulled out a top for machine quilting.  The name of the pattern for this top is Seahorse in Seaweed by Elizabeth L0nnquist and finishes at 24′ x 30″.

This quilt top was made sometime before 2008, so I think that it is really time for it to become a finished quilt.  I wanted the top to be a bit bigger, so I added an inner border on the top/bottom/right side to reflect the inner border around the seahorse and then an outer border.

Now the top measures 34″ x 41″ – not huge, but still a nice size for a baby or toddler.  And the best part is that it there will be no need to piece a backing!

      I think that the extra border really finishes off the quilt nicely. It will a great present for a baby/toddler boy. Thanks for stopping by.

    NYB is subtle but I bet it will be very elegant when finished. I love a quilt where the fabric does the work!

      Paula Nadelstern’s fabric is elegant and does the work – what a great combination. It has been a good break from the scrappy quilts that I usually make.
