Design Wall Monday 8/1/11

WOO HOO!! It's QUILTED!



This is how I spent my Saturday AND Sunday. I've been a little intimidated by this quilt. It is a Roll Roll Cotton Boll from Bonnie Hunter's Mystery. This pattern is no longer on her blog, BUT, it will be in her next book due out in 2012.

I didn't want to do an all over design but couldn't think what I wanted to do. Finally, at the Long Beach show this week, I found a template that I thought might be perfect for the large blocks. I'm pretty happy with it. I free-handed just the clumps of three leaves around the border. I thought after quilting the entire center I would have enough muscle memory to replicate the leaves. Not so much! They look excellent from a galloping horse so I am leaving them as is.

  1. Amazing work! Sometimes the projects that are most intimidating are most work doing. Love the color choices as well as the quilting pattern. Seeing other people finish this up is what keeps me motivated to move forward.
