The Antique Tiles quilt top (67″ square) is completed.

062215 (1024x1008)After checking through my stash twice and finding nothing for the border, I headed to Jo-Ann’s with a coupon. I found some brown material, but once I got it home I discovered it didn’t play well with the quilt center.

Why am I having so much trouble with border fabric recently?  This is the second quilt in a row with this issue.  Anyway it was back to the fabric store where I found this red fabric.

While I was washing the red border fabric, I worked on the second block for the Happy Halloween quilt.

Meet Vampire and Mrs. Monster –

062215A (1024x675)Once all the blocks are completed, I will square them up and add the finishing details.  These Halloween characters make me smile every time I look at them.

Design Wall Monday 06-15-15

The bin with the leftover scraps from the Bowtie quilt contained a bunch of 3 1/2″ squares.  There were probably 25 or 30 squares – I don’t have any idea what I was thinking when I cut them all out.

My first idea was to use all the squares in a Trip Around the World pattern, but then I decided to use this block pattern – Antique Tile from Bonnie Hunter’s Addicted to Scraps column in Quiltmaker  Sept/Oct 2011.

061515 (1024x872)There will be 25 blocks in this quilt – 9 more to make – and they will be set with sashing and cornerstones.  I have been digging deep into the stash to find more reds and browns to make the blocks, but no clue what I will do about the border yet.
