Design Wall Monday - January 18, 2021

 Good Morning Quilters!  Well, I had 6 units completed last Monday, and said if I increased by 50%, there would be 9 completed by today, and there are now 9.   If I increased production by 50% again, it would mean 9 + 4.5 units.....13.5 completed.  

Not happening, as that would be pushing production too much and this factory (me) has quality control issues if I run it too fast.  Here are the 9 blocks and the piece measures about 35 x35 inches right now. Each unit should be 12.5 x 12.5 inches before sewing them together, so the entire unit would be 36.5 x 36.5 if 1/4 inch seams were constant.  My seam allowances were not all the same sizes when this project was started.  



















Also, the May Day Flower Basket blocks continue along.  This block was finished yesterday, just in time to show you the picture this morning.  The French knots are getting so easy for me now, I feel I could do them in my sleep.  


What are you working on?  So many great blog linkups last week - keep it up!  I looked at some each day all week long, to cheer me up.  Please linkup and mention this Design Wall Monday post somewhere within your post.  And also provide a link so quilters can come here to see all the other great blogs.   

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. The May basket is beautiful, so dainty. The drunkards path blocks are coming along, looks like you're doing a good job, happy stitching!

  2. The May Basket turned out beauitfully. The SIT finds French Knots challenged, but not as challenging as satin stitching. Quality control is important, you see much less of the seam ripper when you can convince yourself to just take it slow. Happy stitching this week.

  4. Your DP blocks have inspired me. I have a new ruler for cutting the units....now, to make time to practice making blocks! The new basket is charming.

  5. I'm glad the "Judy Factory" has sensibly decided to slow down production in favor of quality control! I am loving this project so much. There are so many "scrappy" versions of Drunkard's Path that I've seen recently; I'd forgotten how striking this pattern can be made up in just two fabrics.

  9. I take it slow and easy also for quality control and I'm only doing straight lines! Your curved blocks look perfect. Keep it up!
