Design Wall Monday 1-9-12

Yet another edition of Design Wall Monday hosted by Judy L of Patchwork Times.  Be sure to check out what other quilters are working on.

I am finishing up this 4 Patch Stacked Posie Quilt – I am using only 16 of the 36 posie blocks… so I can make another quilt with the leftovers – just need an new design plan.  I have found that it’s easy to get a bigger quilt by setting the posie block within a block.  These blocks end up being about 18 inches.  Three rows are stitched but not joined together yet… I’m working on finishing up the sashing on the bottom row and then will join them together.  With a 9 inch black (yes I have enough!!) border this will finish off at 100” square.


No longer on the design wall is this Bouillabaisse Quilt.  I wanted to get it done and out of the way so I spent some time this week pulling and pondering options and decided on this green leaf print.  It is a mid value – not too light or dark and the color is sorta neutral too.  I didn’t get a picture of the whole quilt because the Posie quilt above is on the wall.  This will serve as a shop sample for a class later in the spring.

By the end of the week I’ll be able to mark these both off as complete… well complete tops at least!

I just love this quilt. I can't decide if it is the colors or the pattern or both.

Should I be giving you Quilt College credits for these beauties? Really gorgeous and I love the green border.
