Four Little Quilts on the Design Wall

On my design wall today:

4 little quilts

Three of four of these little doll-sized quilt tops have been waiting for far too long for their moment under the needle.  It feels like their time has come.  Sunday afternoon, I pulled them out of the pile and put them on the wall to revisit my original vision and think about quilting designs.
  • The maple leaf quilt is made from 3-inch blocks from a block exchange many years ago on a quilting forum.  
  • I made the wonky shoo fly quilt from off-cuts from some lotto blocks–I blogged about it here, three years ago. 
  • The tall shoofly doll quilt hasn't been around that long–it was made last month from leftover triangles from the Holiday Lane pillow when I was prototyping the Tall shoo fly blocks for the January Block Lotto. 
  • The mini-irish chain is a twin quilt that I made when I messed up the math and made too many blocks for a quilt for a friend, Double Trouble, and then saw the opportunity to make a version for myself. 
Maybe I will end up packing some (or all) of them away unquilted (again), but I am optimistic and planning to have four little quilt finishes soon.

I'm linking with Judy's Design Wall Party post today on Patchwork Times–go share whatever is on your design wall today and check out what every ones is doing.

Those are all very cute but I think my favorite is the tall shoo-fly. Something about those colors with the dark background really works for me!
