Design Wall Monday, September 9, 2019

Yikes, I forgot to post my Monday AM post last night.  I usually write it before I go to bed.  But please forgive me, I'm old.  (I used to do things like this when I was young too, but now I feel I have an excuse).  lol

So, since I'm not at my design wall, let me show you a quilt I liked from the recent Grand Rapids AQS exhibit.  There was a group of quilts off to one side that were entirely hand pieced and hand favorites!

This was an Ocean Waves quilt with great colors:

I loved the pinwheel centers, the hourglass setting squares, and the touch of cheddar that added so much to the quilt.  Here's the full quilt:

I had to study it for a bit to decide if the cheddar was random, or placed in a certain spot....and saw that there was a "pattern" to the cheddar placement.
It is always the middle triangle of the hst strip that is towards the light part of the hourglass block.  It is such a beautiful quilt.  Two more pictures:

What are working on this week?  I am back in Grand Rapids, and am organizing the small/doll quilts again.  I have a goal of having a label and hanging triangles on each one, and there is a pile of them waiting for me to get that done.

Thanks for participating, it always pleases me to see what you are doing.  Please, as always, I ask that you link back to this particular blog post from somewhere within your blog post.
