Design Wall Love

Hello Everyone,

I have to say I have been busy the last week and lacking on my blog reading. So today I vow to get caught up.

But first an update, for those of you who remember or participated, pillowcases were delivered to the Hole in The Wall Gang Camp. A total of 1,600 pillowcases. Thank you all for your generous donations. Our goal next year is 2,000!! So I will be putting a call out for some more help. You can read an article about it here. All I can say is that they were absolutely thrilled!!

Also, my website has had a slight MAKEOVER!! So go check it out. I think it is a little simpler now. Let me know what you think. While you are there be sure to look at the customer quilts under Recent Additions. They are just beautiful!

Now for some pictures! I know a lot of you have been watching my progress on yet another Judy Niemeyer quilt. Well I am happy to say that I am almost done!!

Loving the stars.....



Mmmmm... raspberry and chocolate batiks a yummy combo!



Top right corner....


Top left corner....


The entire (well almost) quilt on my design wall. Unfortunately, my wall is not long enough. There is an outlet that you just can't cover up. So the bottom border sits on my table.


As you can see in the above picture, I made a design decision to make have the border chocolate and half raspberry. I kind of like the look and am slowly but surely piecing all the units together.

I have really been enjoying paper piecing of late. But after this one, I must get started on my Spooktacular Halloween Swap that Jane is hosting. I have the fabric ready to go!

My next post will be on Tuesday, so keep an eye out! I have something special planned for my readers!

Until Next Time.....

I love the combination...chocolate and raspberry. Makes me hungry. This is just an awesome quilt!!

Janet said...

This quilt is fabulous. I'm intrigued with the way the star is pieced. I like the idea that all the pieces do not come to the center (so much bulk). Chocolate and Raspberry is delicious together!

Ohhh!! I love it. This is going to be beautiful.

Stephanie said...

Simply stunning and delicious! Perfection, Jackie.
