Design Wall Monday - January 22, 2018

Since Valentine's Day is coming up next month, I decided to work on my valentine quilt project and it's back up on the design wall.

Here is a picture:




The original cross stitch chart idea is here:



I am going to change the bottom wording, and have it charted out here:



This week I hope to sew together the rows and columns on the five remaining grids that I have sectioned off on the upper part, and also start on the Be My Valentine wording squares.  I have all the squares cut.  

This project is very peaceful and non-thinking vs. the Jane Stickle triangles I've been working on, so it's a pleasant change.  What's on your design wall this Monday?

Please remember to link back to this particular post within your post.

That means the link back should be:

http://smallquiltsanddollquilts.blogspot.com/2018/01/design-wall-monday-january-22-2018.html

and not just to the generic blog site:  http://smallquiltsanddolllquilts.blogspot.com

For those of you who have my blog button somewhere on your blog, that's nice, but it is so much nicer to include a link back within your post.  I appreciate it so much.  Thanks

This is lovely and intriguing to think of using a cross stitch pattern as a template. It totally works.

Your red and white Valentine quilt is so beautiful, so original looking. Reminds me of when I did counted cross stitch, it' will be an heirloom for sure.

How brilliant to use a cross stitch chart for a piecing pattern. It is turning out beautifully!
