What's on My Design Wall - 6/15

Nothing at the moment. I finished up the quilt from last week and haven't gotten anything else out.

That's not to say I haven't been quiting. I've made the next three Kansas Spirit BOM samples for the LQS, I finished the Pink and Brown quilt and I made a birthday block for a swap I'm in.

Currently, I suppose you could say my design wall is the ironing board.

This is a UFO from the early 90's. It was supposed to be my husband's godson's high school graduation present. I never finished it. One of the QCC (Quality Control Cats) threw up on it. But don't worry, he eventually got this quilt a few years ago.

Anyway, the front of this quilt is alternating squares of stars on a blue background with a red and white stripe. It seems I pieced the front and was going to do wide sew flip borders. The center section and the top and bottom borders were already sewn down, but there is no quilting in the center. I'm going to have to do some sort of 'tacking' to quilt it, as I'll quilt more puckers into it doing anything else. I've got one of the side borders on and just need to fix a spot on the other borer and then I'll be ready to do whatever quilting it's going to get.

Part of me says rip the border off and 'do it right'. But the part of me who wants it finished says just go with it. There's nothing special about this quilt, but I'm sure it will keep someone warm this winter.

  1. Got to love those QCC's I have had that same thing happened to me to. Lately it has been a QCD that got me in a tether. I had my quilt laying on the bed (design wall) SHE piddled on it. Needless say no sewing just laundry and cleaning that day.
