Design Wall Monday 2-24-2014

My design wall has old stuff up.  But I did spread out these blocks that are going to Janet who is part of the FCQEquilters group.  They turned out pretty nicely.  Janet will be making Quilts of Valor with these blocks. 

I started quilting the shaded 9 patch quilt that you can see here

Here's what the border is looking like.  I thought I was going to love the quilting I had planned.  It will look fine but it isn't as great as I thought it would be.  Sigh.  But I do like the border.  I think I will be stitching on the white chalk line I used to line up the panto. (um, not the diagonal one on the corner!) 
On to the goals from last week.  Not bad but I really don't have much to show for it.

Happy Quilting All! 


  1. Those QOV blocks look great. I wish they were coming to me for our QoV group. Maybe some of my friends would do that for our chapter, if I ask. I do long arm quilting for them, but haven't had time lately to make the tops. Your quilting in the border of your quilt looks good.

  2. Love the QOV stars!

    Your list of weekly goals are wonderful. I really must start doing that.

  3. Hi Bonnie, I keep checking for more Triangle Thursdays. Have you decided you are done or will there be more? Thank you, Ellen
