Design Wall Monday

3 out of 4 isn't bad....  I just have to finish stitching the last one and a half bows, then I'll be ready to sew the borders to the quilt!  
I used a narrow machine blanket stitch on the swags, but changed to a narrow zig-zag stitch for the bows.  I found I had more control while turning the sharp ovals.  Now I'll have three quilt tops lined up waiting to be quilted, so I think the next step is to prepare backings and get basting.....
Our bedroom is almost back to normal after its new coat of paint.  The pictures are hung, furniture polished and in place, but I reminded DH that he forgot to clean the ceiling fan....  I am still sorting through a collection of costume jewelry, left to me from my mother.  I need to simplify things, and I rarely wear any of it.  I'm cleaning and polishing, saving some of the special items, and the rest will be donated (my friend's church sale has a jewelry area, so they will probably end up there).


  1. Lovely top! I'm a sucker for applique and this one is just awesome!

  2. Your quilt is shaping up beautifully! Really like the swags and bows.

  3. Your Bunny Hill "Tisket a Tasket" quilt is fabulous. Your fabric choice for sashing and the swag borders really frame it beautifully. I'm sure Anne would love to see it.

  4. Wow! That is coming out beautifully! Your work is so nice!

  5. I love that quilt. I downloaded all the patterns too but haven't started my top. You chose a really lovely border. Great job.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
