Design Wall Monday - February 12, 2018

Valentine's Day is this week!  Here are a few of my valentine decorations that are out this month:  Two small heart pillows in my tiny pillow collection on top of a doll sized dresser, in the entry hall:




My small heart doll quilt made a few years ago:



It is hanging in the dining room, and I love changing out the little quilts each month on this wall.

The large postage stamp quilt is finished down to the lettering on the bottom, and I tweaked the pattern a bit this week.  Original graph paper design:



And the revised final version, which I worked on this week:



I had a goal of getting all the piecing finished by Valentine's Day, and I might still make it in two more days.  Here is my progress so far:



On the graph paper, I divided the wording into 18 sections, and sewing the squares together in one direction and then the other direction meant that I was dividing the project into 36 tasks.  I have 22 tasks completed, and 14 more to go.  For example, the "en" of Valentine is sewed together column to column, and has yet to be sewn row to row.  Hope this makes sense.  I took the top part off the design wall, as the incomplete part was getting too low to the ground to make it comfortable to work on.

I really enjoy seeing what you all are working on!  As usual, my instructions are the same, please link back to this particular post somewhere within your blog post.  It's the least you can do for me, and I appreciate you so much.

  5. I came across a very old quilt with similar pixelated wording on it recently. She wrote her name and date down the side of the quilt, and it was spectacular. Yours will be too!
