Design Wall!!


So now I can really post about what is on my Design Wall!

Here it is between the bookcases:

 This is the completed top from the Planet Patchwork New Year's Day Mystery.  I think they called it "Chips and Strips".

And here is the whole thing, including the bottom edge.  The dimensions are about 54" x 72".
I changed their borders a little.

My son sent me a flannel sheet that I am hoping to use as a design wall. I may attach it to a bamboo pole so it can be easily hung and rolled. The quilt is so bright. I don't know what the border plan was but I like to see some of the red in there. Good start to the new year!

It looks as though 2012 is off to a good start for you, Sara.

I use a large piece of Warm & Natural batting as a design wall. I'd had the same piece up for about 7 years....last week I took the bold step of taking it down and turning it over, revealing a fresh surface unmarred by thousands of little thread bits.

I like how you changed up the borders on the Planet Patchwork Mystery. I have some plaid flannel strips and am thinking of using them in this design for a fast flannel quilt--I really want one now, but I know that soon it will be too warm for flannel in Texas. I think something fast and easy like this is the right way for me to go.

That border fabric is just PERFECT!

I like that you did yours scrappy but one color! I didn't like it as much in a multi-colored configuration. Very nice!!

Thanks for the product description. The grommets are perfect as well as the grid -- who knew?

Your quilt is looking wonderful as well! 8-))

Nice job on Chips and Strips. Um, mine needs to be laid out. I love the one color chips. And, I like the border you picked. I have a distinct feeling I'll be changing the border from the boring cream fabric I used to create the stair step look. Darn, I wish I hadn't cut all of the borders out.... oh well. Yours is an inspiration to me! Thanks
