Design Wall Monday 01-22-18

It snowed all day Sunday so that automatically made it a sew-day.  All twelve blocks for the Bouillabaisse quilt are finished – finally.  It is so close to being completed.  I just need to sew the blocks together and add the border.

The fabric hanging on the right is the border.  I want to get this done and off of the design wall because I am ready for a new project.

One of my 2018 goals is to make another recycled shirt quilt, so last weekend I stopped by GoodWill to pick up some more shirts.  I really lucked out because it was 50% off everything in the store day and nine shirts followed me home.

I already have two Bonnie Hunter patterns picked out – Tumalo Trail from Scraps & Shirttails II (with a different border) and Swing Your Partner from Scraps & Shirttails (with a different layout).  Both patterns call for 3 1/2″ unfinished HST, so that will be the first step.

The recycled shirt quilts make great masculine quilts which I need for my grandsons.

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

Have a good week and stay warm,

    I have some plaids I want to use up too – maybe Tumalo Trail would be good for me too. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Mondays, Judy
