Design Wall Monday January 22, 2012

Well, I finally dove in and quilted this thing.  I used a stencil to suggest where my feathers should go.  The "suggestion" may or may not be due to my skill at following lines.  Overall, I'm pleased with the feathers but I'm not sure it's the best design for this wallhanging.   BUT, it's quilted and that's the important thing.  It needs binding before I can call it a completed UFO.

The design is "Illusions" by Caryl Bryer Fallert.  It looks complicated but goes together super easily.  I think I made the whole top in a four-hour workshop.

Here's a bit of a closeup of the quilting with my chalklines still showing.  I think I'll bind, wash, add a sleeve and block it.  Then it should be good to go.

Hop over to Judy's to see what other quilters are up to.

Have a great week.


  1. Very pretty! It looks amazingly complicated. Congrats on being so close to completing one of your UFOs.

  2. Very nice quilt and quilting! It might have been easy to put together but to get the shades and values right is the big challenge. Happy quilting!

  3. I love this, of course I love Carol's designs anyway. Great job!

  4. great job! That certainly doesn't look like it was easy to piece-which makes it even cooler in my book.

  5. congrats on the sewing room cleanup and your almost 1st finish of the year! I saw your UFO list for 2012. quite impressive!

    I got an ipad for christmas and thought I would be able to do my blog posting from there but as you aptly said soooo not blog friendly. yet I will persevere. I am hoping to be able to use it now and then. we will see!

  6. Love it! Your color choices are perfect!
