Design Wall Monday 01-16-17

Even though I have been busy working on birthday gifts, I managed to find time to make this quilt top (59″ x 59″) using Paula Nadelstern fabric.  The pattern is Walk About by Ann Lauer.  It is a very easy pattern and a good example of fabric doing all the work.  I did take extra care with the mitered corners and am very pleased with the results.

Winter Diamonds (17 1/2″ x 20 3/4″) was also completed and hung on the wall in time for a snowstorm today.

Instead of embroidery for the nose, eyes & coat buttons and snowflakes, I used wool for the nose, buttons for the eyes & coat buttons and snowflake charms.  I like the dimension that the buttons and charms add to the wallhanging.

The next project is to machine quilt the Lattice Quilt top.  I had better start the year off with a bang if I am going to meet my goal of 25 tops quilted – well 24 now.  The next pieced project is New York Beauty by Leslee Evans in a Quilt Almanac magazine.  I don’t have the magazine only the pages with the instructions, so I have no idea what issue it is.  However this quilt also uses Paula Nadelstern fabric, so I am working on a trend here.
