Design Wall Monday - November 4, 2019

Remember this quilt?  It has 1,300 broken dishes "blocks" in it, and each broken dishes "block" has four hsts, so eight small pieces of fabric there.   Each hst finishes at 1 inch, so the four hsts that compose a broken dishes "block" finish at 2 in. x 2 in.



Here's another picture from when I was starting to make it:



The binding has been completed on it this week.  This one is 100" x 100" and it took all week to hand sew down the binding.  Here is a picture of the old quilt top that I used as inspiration:




And here is my finished quilt hanging over the railing in my hallway, which shows only about 1/3 of it.  I will need to find a place to take a picture of the whole quilt.



A picture of it on my couch in the living room (where I tested it out today for a nap:




Here is a picture showing the Baptist Fan quilting pattern done by my long arm quilter, and the binding, which matches the background fabric:






What is on your design wall this week?  I loved looking at all the projects this last week.  You are making great progress.

  7. total show stopper, well done. I am thinking fabrics for a 1/2 size mystery this year. I always think of you saying a few years ago "I am so over mysteries" :) I'm thinking shirts this year, but lots of time to think yet. Getting harder and harder to work out of stash, there isn't a ton left of real choices.
