Design Wall Monday - October 10, 2022

 Good Morning Quilters!

This week I made lots of square-within-a-square blocks.  All of the smaller ones (2 inch square finished size) are now attached to the doll quilt, as shown below:

The doll quilt is now 20” by 28”.  I don’t know yet how it will be quilted.

The larger border blocks  (4 inch square finished size) are all made for the large quilt, and the top and bottom border blocks have been added to the quilt.  There are 24 blocks made for each side strip that are soon to be added to the two sides.

80” by 96” will be the final size of the big quilt (in theory)….I will measure it when it is finished.

FYI:  The paper-piecing method I used to make the border blocks requires cutting off little triangle corners.  You know I couldn’t throw them away!  Here is a picture of the cut off pieces, which will go into a future small quilt/doll quilt with lots of hsts.

October is really a beautiful month in Michigan.  Here is a picture of the start of the color show from the Maples in our yard.

What is happening on your design wall?  I really enjoy reading your blogs and looking at all the pictures.  Your participation in the Design Wall Mondays Linky Party is really appreciated.  Thank you so much!

The square in a square blocks make perfect borders for both quilts. Looks like you've got a couple of finishes in your future. Happy stitching this week.

Hi Judy, your border is going to be perfect for your quilt. It's great that you can use up all of those scraps. Enjoy the fall colours!
