Design Wall Monday


Once again, it's Design Wall Monday and this time I have some progress to show!  I got the Raspberry Jam top all done, now I have to get it quilted before I can scallop the outer border.  I have never done a scallop or a wave border before, so this will be an adventure! 

So now it's time for something else to go on the wall . . . the blocks from a Quilt Guild Retreat from several years ago, I'm thinking perhaps from 2005 or '06.  Of course I am missing a block (see the hole at the top left?).  I just hope that I have some more of that white on white background fabric to make another one, the reds won't matter as much as the background . . . 

Check out what everyone else has on their design wall at JudyL's Patchwork Times!

Both projects are wonderful! Show us how you're doing that scalloped edging so we can learn!

Kathie said...

I have never done a wavy border either so please be sure and post a pic when you have that done.

Amazing how we never run out of projects to put up on the design wall after we finish a quilt. LOL.

Your Raspberry jam is really cute.

Reds seem to be on a lot of walls this morning. I love that colour but don't have a lot of it in fabric. Maybe I'll just have to order some. LOL. Your quilts are lovely. I hope you mange to find enough of the background fabric to finish that quilt.

Ohh, scalloped edges how nice. Template, trace and cut? I never tried it. Can't wait to see and hear of your adventure!!

I have had one block short syndrome before and it is aggrivating. Hope you have what you need.

oh, Man! I love the red on the botton one. If you don't have that fabric still, just make it noticably differnt and it will look what they call "interesting" ! LOL

glen: I will love it either way!

Hey is that the Bouncing Betty? Mine is not done either. The blocks are sewn together but I quit working on it when I got to the borders. It will be good to see one finished. You go girl!

Kare said...

Yes it is the Bouncing Betty - thanks, I could not remember the name of it!

Raspberry Jam is such a happy quilt. The scallop border will be just the right touch.

Good luck finding the fabric you need for that last block. That quilt is going to be a winner too.

Love the quilts, especially the one with the missing block! It's lovely! :0)
