Design Wall Monday 2/28/11

Here is what I am working on

It is a fun round-robin challenge that my guild is doing.  The twist is that we are each completing our own quilt instead of passing it around for others to add borders.

The initial directions were for us to choose a center block.  I chose this mola of my MIL's.

Then, at each meeting, the challenge chairperson picks two guidelines for the next round of borders.  The first round called for a 5-inch border that had something dimensional on it.  I added the checkerboard borders on the top, right, and left and added the leaves for dimension.

The next round called for a 2-inch border with curves.  I added more of the checkerboard and a vine to which I plan to add more leaves and flowers.

I welcome suggestions and critiques.

  1. Wow... that is some challenge you're working on! Great job... I love it!!!

  2. That is so cute! Love the birds.

  3. Great round robin idea! This is looking so completely unique. Seems completely cohesive at this point. Hmm, wonder what will come next?

  4. A really unique quilt. I was just thinking how wonderful it would look on a patio with a great outdoor living area. Well, we can only dream. lol
