Design Wall Monday, March 21, 2011

Well Judy I tried.  I just couldn't do it.  Making Ends Meet in a weekend just isn't something I could pull off!  I've got all the components finished, but no steam left over to assemble it into a top.  So this is how Monday begins... 

I'm not certain I'll have enough blue for the 2nd of the 2 inner borders, but maybe...time will tell.  I don't want to cut anything until its sewn to the pieced border.  I'm still planning on the really cute novelty fabric for one side and part of the top.  The rest of the 4" outer border will be pieces of what's left.  I still have a bunch of the green, orange and gold.  I've been giving thought to adding in a zebra print.  What do you think?



Tonight is Canyon Quilt Guild's March monthly meeting.  I'll be meeting up with quilting sisters for dinner and then on to the meeting with guest speaker Laura Wasilowski, the Dean of the Chicago School of Fusing.  I'll be spending the rest of my evening with DH binding the second of three denim quilts.  Hope there is something good in store on TV. 

Find time to be inspired with other Design Walls through Judy's Patchwork Times.

Gosh, you really got a LOT done - good for you! I can't wait to see it when it's all done - a zebra stripe would be sew much fun!! I'm maybe a little new yet to try this adventurous quilt, but perhaps one day?
Thank you for stopping by to sign up for the fat quarter giveaway at http://www.rocknquilts.blogspot.com

I am impressed that you tried to do that quilt in a weekend! It is sure pretty tho- I kind of like the idea of a zebra print!
