Design Wall Monday 04-25-16

I want to say thank you to everyone that left such wonderful comments regarding my Lincoln quilt.  In fact, I am a bit overwhelmed with the response.

This last week I have been working on the Domino pattern from The Casual Quilter by Robin Strobel.  Several years ago I realized that I have quilting books that contain only one pattern that I am interested in and Domino is one such pattern.  Once I make the one quilt I am interested in, the book is donated to the quilt guild’s library.

This quilt top went together quickly.  All the blocks were pieced on Thursday & Friday and on Saturday I played with layouts.  Playtime was the big reason that I liked this pattern.  This is the first attempt.

A good starting place, but needs a bit more rearranging, so I moved the first column of blocks so they became the last column.

This is looking better, but what would happen if I moved the top row to the bottom?

Yes, this is the one I like the best.  All that was left to do was to sew the blocks together and add the borders.

The quilt top finished at 62 1/2″ square.  My current leader/ender has been 9-patch & hourglass blocks out of recycled shirt fabric.  I think that I will piece that top while I am considering my next project.  Next week I will be attending the HMQS in Salt Lake City, so this is a great project to finish up before I leave.
