Design Wall Monday - September 13, 2021

 August, 2012, nine years ago, I took a class on curved pieces at the AQS Quilt Show in Grand Rapids.  This was before I even moved to Grand Rapids, as I remember staying with my friend Joan during the quilt show.  My sample from the class:



And a vintage Drunkard’s Path block that Joan had at her house.

 March, 2021  On the Design Wall progress:




September, 2021,  the finished quilt:  




The binding was completed this week.  I would have used more of the block fabric for the binding, but it was all gone.  I used all I had in the quilt.  I bought a half yard of solid dark brown and used that.  It feels really good to finish it.

Can’t wait to see what you are showing us this week.  I am going to post a comment on your blog today.  Last week, I looked at everyone’s post and didn’t take time to say anything.  Today I’m looking forward to some conversation with you.  You are the best at lifting my spirits, and I look forward to each Monday.  

Please join in the Monday Design Wall Linky Party below and show us your projects.  Thanks to you who provide a link back to this page, and thanks to those who mention Design Wall Mondays in your post.  You are my kind of people!



You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  7. Talk about a long-haul quilt! Good for you for finishing it. It looks wonderful. And what load off your mind that another UFO is finished. I need some of your motivation… I did take out a bunch of blocks and have come up with a plan and hope to make a little progress on it this week. We'll see how that goes. Happy stitching this week.
