Design Wall Monday - September 19, 2022

Good Morning Quilters!

I am back to spending time in my quilt room and it feels so good.  I did finish the block I was working on for the Benjamin Biggs quilt.  Here it is:  

The next block I am going to work on:  Block #8:

It has a funny shaped little flower and two kinds of leaves.  I am sure it will challenge me.

The other quilt I want to pick up and finish is adding borders to the May Day Basket quilt.  I finished the companion doll quilt and am experimenting with it to see if I like the border (before I tackle the large quilt border).  Here are two pictures….(1) of the doll quilt 

and (2) my preliminary pattern for a border.  A square within a square that will finish at 4 inches.  It will be green in the center with four white corners.  I need to make 24.  I thought of making them 2 inches square, but that would mean making 48.  We will see how these look. 

What are you planning for this coming week?  And what did you do since last Monday that you can show us?

I so enjoy looking at all of your projects.  Thank you for joining the Design Wall Monday Linky Party.  And double thank you to those of you who mention Design Wall Monday in your post and also link back to this post.

Hi Judy, good luck with that appliqué! It sounds like that could make a good border. Good luck and have a great week.

I too love the setting of your baskets and I'm sure whatever choices you make with borders will be wonderful. It's great to see them again. And also good luck with the applique. All wonderful stuff!

Love those basket blocks! The square in a square border with the white and green will make a nice accent and finish off the quilt beautifully. Happy stitching this week. I'm hoping to be joining in for next Monday's Design Wall post.
