On My Design Wall

Hello Everyone,

Since my last post on the Colors of Peru Quilt, many of you expressed that you couldn't wait to see what it would look like together. Although it is not all together yet, most of it is on my design wall!! So I wanted to share it all with you.


I am just loving playing with this one. Colorful and bright to cheer me up during these cold winter days.


This is all I have up right now. It is too long and skinny for me. It really needs to be wider. I have more blocks that need to go up. So I will continue adding and hope to have that done soon. Then onto piecing it together.
Hope you all enjoyed this one!

My Podcast Episode 10 is now available via iTunes and at the link on my sidebar. Lots of great tips are packed into this one. I hope you enjoy!

Don't forget this is the last day of the Share the Love sale at my online shop. Use the code love15, at checkout, for your 15% discount


Until Next Time...

The TV is on in the background and when I looked at your quilt on the design wall, I heard Jennifer Aniston saying, "Oh, it's everything I ever dreamed it would be!" My thoughts exactly! It's just stunning, Jackie.

That quilt is just great!

I have a question about your podcasts. Are you supposed to be able to see video with them or is it just talking. I have attempted to open the latest and all I get is sound. I need to do this when I have more time to just sit and listen, but I was curious on what these are about.

teresamnj said...

Wow, this is eye-popping and beautiful!

suz said...

I've loved this project since you started and seeing so many of the blocks together is wonderful. The colors are amazing and the texture from the stripes are just perfect. Can't wait to see it finished.

Tracey said...

Woo-hoo ... eye poppingly amazing! I love it.
