What's Cookin' on the Design Board


I thought I would let you peek at what has been on my design board lately. This photo shows some round 'thangs' AND some square 'thangs'. Look at my first ever SPIKES I played with this past weekend.....oh...these are fun and VERY neat!! To the left in the photo is my log cabin blocks I started oh so w-a-y back when. I have decided they needed one more row sewn around the outer edges...the top 4 blocks are all I have done on this. Those GREAT BIG round blocks are about 20"....they are from a quilt out of the Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran book.


These are some piano key borders I will sew on to a BIG and UGLY quilt I started W-A-Y back when too. I have since finished all four and have sewn them onto that UGLY quilt......and can you believe the ugliest quilt I ever made is THE BIGGEST one I have ever made.....it's at least a queen size......yuck!! Who wants THAT much ugliness spread out over their bed????..HA! I might show it to you sometime! OK....OK...go here to see which one I am talking about!



And of course a productive sewing weekend would not be complete without some more cute little stars! These are about 3 1/2".



"AAaahhhhhh.....cum on Mom.....can't you stop with the quiltin' stuff and come play!!"

  6. Your fugly top may surprise you after it's quilted. Large feathered wreaths in the white spaces, curling fronds of feathers? The list is endless of how this will be finished. Love your liberated pieces!
