Design Wall Monday - April 12, 2021

 Good Morning Quilters! 

(1) Last week I asked what you thought about whether I should add a border to the Drunkard’s Path quilt or not.  I thought you’d like this conversation I had with Maggie ( blog):

Maggie: “I think the drunkard’s path block can certainly stand on it’s own.” 

Me:  “Thanks for your input.  The Drunkard’s path quilt can stand alone, but I am thinking of a small border to ‘frame’ it.  I just thought of a joke:  The Drunkard’s Path Quilt can’t stand alone because it is drunk!  Therefore, I will be adding a border.  Lame joke, I know.”

Maggie:  “It was a great joke.  LOL”

So it is settled, I will be adding a border to the Drunkard’s Path quilt.  I will show it to you when the border is added.

(2) Things are moving along on my design wall this week.  First, a picture of the top left side of my design wall, showing blocks and rows all sewn together...

And here is a picture of the bottom right side with blocks in various stages of completion pinned to the wall.  If it continues to go together well, it should be a complete quilt top by next Monday morning.  

(3) Here is the latest embroidery block, partially finished:

(4) And finally, a picture of my two doggies.  They are sleeping on a old very worn quilt.


What’s on your design wall?  The dogs aren’t interested, but I am!  And lots of other quilters want to see your progress.  Please add your blog post below and also provide a link back to this post from somewhere within your blog post.  Thanks for being a part of Design Wall Mondays!

  1. The embroidery block looks great, she'll be another beauty. The design wall quilt looks nice. I look forward to viewing the finished top next week. Enjoy spring, happy stitching!

  2. Your exchange with Maggie is pretty fun. That's the best part of blogging, the interaction with quilters who get it. Your stars are coming along. It's pretty definite that you've got some finishes coming soon.

  3. If you've set a goal to have all the stars into a top by Monday, I'm betting you will be done much sooner!

    A Drunkards' Path can't stand by itself! I love it!

  4. I'm still trying to hold off starting my Drunkards Path until I make progress on others but I keep thinking of starting to prepare fabric and start cutting

  5. I love your embroidery block! I think I have that pattern and maybe someday...... LOL. Your quilt on the wall is very striking! Here is hoping you are able to finish it today! Hugs

  6. You are definitely making forward progress. It'll be great to see the finished lemoyne star top. You're almost done with the current embroidered block. How many more do you have to make? (Or should I say do you want to make? You don't "have" to make any if you don't want to!)

  7. I never thought of it that way before, but OF COURSE the drunkard needs borders to help him stand up on his own! Maybe rail fence borders, not because that would necessarily look good, but because hand rails would be a nice safety feature for your inebriated quilt blocks. Hah!

  8. The Drunkards Path will look good with or without a border. Those dogs are very content, aren't they? I got lots of doggie love from the 2 at my oldest daughter's house on Saturday. It's nice to have a warm furry body snoozing next to me on the couch.

  9. I look forward to seeing your Drunkard's Path with a border. I know it will look so lovely and your Lemoyne Star quilt is looking wonderful. Have wonderful week and happy quilting. Thank you for hosting the link party too.

  10. Hi Judy, I liked the joke! It looks like you had a busy week with your design wall. What a pretty embroidery. The dogs look so comfy :-) Take care

  11. The basket looks like so much work!
    The colors of fabric on your design wall make my heart sing.

  12. Your doggies look very comfy!
