Design Wall Monday 1-10-11

This will be a baby quilt for donating to a neonatal unit.  It is based on a design in a Ursula Reikes book. (Quilts for Babies: Easy as ABC or most likely one of the two that followed.) 

Close up shows the color more accurately.  3 rows are sewn together.  Will finish this before next guild meeting so I can turn it in.  I had exactly enough of the purple to make 7 rows.  Yikes, talk about cutting it close! 

A charity quilt for Faithful Circle Quilters is on Ruthie today.  The pantograph is called Popcorn by Willow Leaf Studios.  I tried it when I first got Ruthie and I thought I did a horrible job -- the curved parts were flat, the section where you move to the next "popcorn" were choppy and some really close together, some really far apart.  I think this is so much better.  It will never be exactly like the panto unless I computerize.  And, I just don't think that is going to happen any time soon! 

Go visit Judy's Design Wall Monday to see a long list of other design walls to visit. Lots of people are now participating in Design Wall Monday.  

I'm off to the Y and then up to the studio to finish the quilting on the charity quilt. If any time is left I'll work on the baby quilt. 

Happy Quilting All!
