Design Wall Monday, October 25, 2010

Here we go the start of another week...the last full one of October 2010! Imagine...just 10 weeks until 2011 rings in. Where has 2010 gone?

On my wall today is Judy's Peaches & Dreams pattern. As I mentioned yesterday no name has set in for this one yet. I've been working on the border blocks. That's what I'm showing you...today I'll spend time during my lunch break cutting some 2 1/2" by 8 1/2" strips of orange, ecru, and yellow for the larger of the four components that make up the 12" main block. I think I'll make my quilt 5 by 6 blocks like Judy's pattern, but shorten it up a bit with only one border after the pieced border. I do like the orientation that the 5 by 6 blocks presents. This project is going together fast!

Love it. I am thinking something like this would make a great hospice quilt as it doesn't look like it would take that long to put together. Maybe in greens or some type of "guy" color.

Wow, that is one bright quilt.

I really like it, I bet it helped using up some of your yellow, orange and ecru fabric strips.
Good job, very bright and cheery.

That's a lovely bright mix of colors, sure to provide some sunshine on gray days.

I was going to send you an email but could not find an address. The pineapple quilt is my design. Thanks for the comments. I see you are from San Diego. I lived in Oceanside for 27 years, worked at the navy base at Point Loma. Love your witches. That is a really cute pattern. Yours???? Also the "ink splatters" (that's what I call them) on Oct 20. So colorful...........

This really looks nice. I am going to send a link of this to one of my daughters, she loves orange, maybe because she went to Oklahoma State University, lol.
