Design Wall Monday - January 3, 2022

Happy New Year!  Here is the picture of my Wedding Ring full sized quilt that was finished in November, 2021.  It is about 75” by 80” and is only on my side of the bed at night (hubby is too warm with a quilt on top of him).

The pattern is from a book called Quick Quilts from the Heart, by Liz Porter and Marianne Fons.  Picture from the book: 

 It was a joint project that my friend Joan Brink and I made at the same time.  She gave me this picture showing both of the quilts being shown in a retreat in Shipshewana, IN :

Joan’s quilt has double batting and is custom machine quilted with beautiful feathers.  Mine is edge to edge machine quilted with pretty hearts and leaves.

My small quilt/doll quilt is still in progress.  I decided to add hsts around the edge, and this is the current status:

My annual assessment/reality check/organization of my quilting hobby is progressing nicely.  I have boxed up a lot of magazines to give away, and am going to divide the remaining ones into seasonal small groups, as I like to look at a group of magazines together at the start of each season.  

Speaking of give aways, does anyone want the book with the above pattern in it?  It has lots of nice patterns with good instructions, and I just discovered I have two copies.  I will send one to anyone who wants it.  If more than one replies, I will have a drawing.  

Here is a quote I saw on the internet and liked:

Both Joan and your quilts are lovely, so nice to see them in person. Don't enter me in the drawing, I've already have more projects planned than I'll ever live to make! Happy stitching in 2022!

Love your quilt. My goal is to make a red and white quilt, but I can't decide between redwork or pieced. I'd love to win this book, as it may sway my decision toward a pieced quilt. :0) Thanks for the opportunity.

So fun to see the same quilt pattern made in different ways. Happy New Year!

Oh your quilt is so pretty and your friends as well. How great you are progressing with a clean out. I need to do that too. We are isolating mostly again so goodness knows when I will get some of the stuff I've already set aside for the charity shop. But that shouldn't stop me, LOL.

Your Wedding Ring quilt is so pretty and so is your friends. I look forward to seeing the doll quilt finished. Thank you for hosting the link party and have a blessed week.

Wow, I love the quilt. And I was excited to see that I have the book. It's been in my library for many years and I haven't looked at it for just as long. I may give this pattern a try!

Your quilt looks lovely on your bed--my hubby gets too warm as well. I have a throw-sized quilt on my side :)
What a cute pair of quilts you and your friend shared. Love the doll quilt too, with the added HST.
I would love to have my name thrown in for the book drawing. I have so many quilting magazines as well, but it is hard for me to get rid of them!

That is beautiful. We have the same problem - haha!
