Design Wall Monday 6 - 29 - 2015

I was pretty successful this week in finishing or moving forward on my projects.  First up, what I can show you.  I finished this donation quilt that will be going to a local nursing home. 
This was a joint effort between Sara Anne and myself.  She cut the pieces out from a collection of fabric she has (and is ready to move out!).  I swapped out whatever was in place of the yellows and added them, sewed it and then quilted.  The quilt pattern is a slight variation of Two's Company. I just bought a new edge to edge quilting design and wanted to give it a try.   It is called Ginger Snap and was designed by Apricot Moon.  I really like how it turned out.  See below to notice how it isn't obvious where the rows are.  It also doesn't go up and down so there are no blank spaces at the top and the bottom of a quilt.    

A large chunk of my time was spent quilting a 90 x 90 quilt for a customer.  I'll share it with you in the future.  I figure she needs to finish it and share with our quilt group before I post it here.  

Overall I did pretty well on my goals this week.  I'm close to finishing another UFO and hope to get back to finishing Galaxy.  We'll see how it goes.

  2. I've seen variations of the pattern before, the big rectangles really allow a fabric to be showcased. Yours looks great.
    I do like the edge to edge design and I'm going to make a note of it so that perhaps someday I can get it!
