Design Wall Monday - March 26, 2018

Thank you to all who encouraged me this week!  Your "Go Judy Go" cheered me on to the finish line!.  Here is the Valentine Quilt,for the last time, on my design wall, all in one piece:





The center heart has a little message in the middle, can you see it?











Four little initials, signifying "Judy Hansen loves Lloyd Hansen".  Here's a closeup on the one inch square with the embroidery:



For those (like me) who count things, there are 3,807 one inch squares in the quilt.  I could have cut larger squares where the same color red was next to another square, but it was actually easier to make all the squares the same size, and not have to think about what size square went where.  The quilt is 47 inches long and 81 inches wide.

There are two or three quilts in progress that could go up on the design wall, and it will probably be my Jane Stickle replica quilt.  I've been working on it forever, and it's time to finish it.  I will post about it next week.

But enough about my design wall, what about yours?  Let's see what you have been working on!

Design Wall link-up instructions are the same each week.  Please link back to this particular post somewhere within your post.  I appreciate it so much when you do.

Absolutely beautiful finish! I've often thought of doing something similar to this since I have always worked on historic samplers, and my birthday is Valentine's Day. Would you mind if I did? Not sure if it would be in this lifetime or the next!

Such a great finish for your Valentine top. Love the initials in the center. Your counting of the total squares is impressive, particularly given their tiny size.
