Design Wall Monday

Well, there isn't too much on my Design Wall as we just returned last night from holiday travel . . . we were in Groton, CT - Submarine Capital of the World!  There is laundry to be done and I have to unearth my Quilt Room as I buried it before we left.

So this is what's on the Design Wall: I found the pattern for this in the Feb/Mar 2011 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. It's called Brilliant Sunset . . . a scrappy quilt made from some pretty vivid batiks.

Also on my Design Wall from Judy's UFO Challenge is No 6 - named Now + Later.  I am stuck though as I do not have any suitable backing or binding to complete this one, so a trip to the LQS is in order!

Check out what everyone else has on their Design Wall at JudyL's Patchwork Times!

Both are great quilts. Good luck on your backing quest :)

Who'd a thunk there was a submarine capitol? I love what's on your wall but the 9 patch captures my heart.

welcome home!!! My sewing room WAS clean and now is a wreck again! Lol

I have a nine patch just just like yours in the making. Mine is Repo's from a swap I was in.......'nother to finish. Sigh.

How about piecing a scrappy binding in similar fabrics? Hate for you to buy more fabric when you likely have lots!?!
