A Lot Going On ... On My Design Wall

Some of these projects are finished and just parked on the design wall, some are just beginning.

Design Wall - March 1

The bright little log cabins have become a top, with the addition of five Oklahoma Boomer blocks–the reject boomerette on the wall may become the label–and a pieced border of triangles and strips.

The Arrow block is one of last month's blocks for the Block Lotto; the appliqu├ęd flower blocks are for this month.  In the upper left corner are some small finished items including some pins and badges and my finished project from Jennifer Day's workshop at AQS.  It's something else that I finished a while ago but haven't (yet) shared on this blog.  Here's a closer look.

Finished Workshop Project

It is based on an image of Jennifer's Barn Cat, Killer. Now that my computer is back, I can start finding an image of my own to use for this technique. You can see a quilt that Jennifer Day made using another image of Killer (along with her son, Carson) in my photos from the Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild show last fall here.

Did you notice that envelope pinned to the wall in the upper right corner?  That's the first round of the Cotton Robin, my round added and ready to be mailed on to the next quilter a little later this month.

Beautiful, Sophie. Love what you've done here. I would like to learn that cat technique. Got a few cats around here.

That's a really striking quilt. I love your Oklahoma bloomers, and the way the colour moves around the top.

You were right - it was that there weren't any posts in there. =) I love your log cabin and the boomer blocks make it so much more interesting.

Your log cabin quilt is wonderful! So bright, happy and fun! The cat quilt is amazing, and this is coming from a non-cat person!

Your Killer is killer! Gorgeous. So textural... so really like a cat. Amazing!

Your design board looks great. Curious to see how the quilting technique turns out. ;-)
