Design Wall Monday - July 22, 2019

The last seam was sewn on the Broken Dishes Quilt, and this week I will take it to the longarm quilter.  Yeah!

I have another quilt I'm working on this week - one with exchanged blocks - from other quilters in the Churn Dashers group.  We are each making a replica of a vintage quilt.  Pictured below are the exchanged blocks that I have added the red triangles to.  It is shown on my "design wall bed" with the completed Broken Dishes Quilt underneath it.  I have 9 more blocks to add the red triangles to, and 3 more blocks to make from scratch....to get to the 42 blocks that I need for the quilt.





Here is a picture of the vintage quilt that we are using as inspiration:



I really like the old quilt, and hope mine looks similar.  This quilt will be in the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Newport News, VA in 2020.  Today and tomorrow, I will be adding sashing to the blocks, and will show you a picture next week of my progress.

What do you have to show me?  I am looking forward to seeing your design wall.  And no, you don't have to have a design wall.  As you can see, when I am at the cabin, it is a bed!  You know the drill, please refer back to this particular blog post from somewhere within your post that you publish today.  Thanks!

  4. That is a lovely vintage quilt you are replicating! I really like how the blocks look different depending on the fabrics used, especially the fabrics in the 4 centre flying geese.

  5. love these large quilts you have been making lately. Understand about showing your quilt on the bed - I do that when we travel in the motorhome or at home when the design wall is occupied another gets shown on the floor! We have to work with space we have

  11. Judy, your quilt is a definite improvement over the original inspiration. I am sure it will become a spectacular finish!!!

  12. I too think your quilt will be stunning when finished. And thanks for the idea of setting the blocks on point for exchanged blocks... that can help hide a multitude of errors by the makers. I have at least one quilt I think I can do that to to, help make it more presentable. Some vary by nearly an inch, don't think I can make them all look lovely, but well, it will be loved!
