What's On My Design Wall? - 8/3
What's on my Design Wall? A wider longer wall for one thing. This is a 60 x 102 tablecloth. I folded over about 19 inches at the top. This reinforces the buttonholes and shortens the tablecloth. I didn't center it on the fireplace this time since I needed to avoid the grout. The buttonholes are spaced about 9 1/2" apart and there are 7 of them.
The quilt is my Birthday Quilt. The blue and white Pennsylvania blocks are from a swap I did on the QIAD Forum. Last Thursday I decided I needed to work on something mindless and bigger than the 6" blocks with lots of pieces. This was the project since it involved working on a UFO, cutting fabric, and seeing quick progress.
The stars are not in their final location. I've got to see how the other blue and yellow stars turn out. I also have to decide if I want to float the center or make 1/2 Pennsylvania blocks to take it to the border. Right now I'm thinking a narrow yellow border and then a wider blue border, but I'm not there yet, so who knows.
