Design Wall Monday, August 15, 2011


Happy Monday!  Don't have anything on my design wall, door, or floor to share today...just a lot of PINK!  I'm cutting for Bonnie Hunter's design Jamestown Landing.  I suppose one can never have enough blue quilts, but my pink/red/burgundy stash is way out of control...time to use it.  This one will also help the population control in my neutral stash using various strips of beige/white/ivory/
cream and anything else with just a touch of pink that might be hiding.  It takes 2 7/8" pink and neutral squares (420 each color) that will be made into HSTs and strips of pink and neutral varying in size from 3/4" to 2" wide.  The length of the neutrals up to 9".  The pink also take varying sizes 1" to 2 1/2" wide to be cut down to 5".  I'll be busy with the cutting for a little while...the three stacks on the right are what's to be done yet...yep I'll be busy for a little while.

This is Komfort Kove just back from Kerry's Quilting.  It's a Quiltmaker pattern (July/August 2010) designed by Theresa Eisinger called Pinwheel Cove.  I've got to get the binding on and the label.  Think I'll choose a teal for the binding...there must be a 1/2 yard piece in my stash that will work.





What do you have going on in your sewing studio this week?  Check out other works in progress through Patchwork Times (look for the button on the right).  Lots to look out every Monday.  Be creative this week!

Can't believe all the different pinks you have in your stash!! If I had to grab pinks I might come up with not more than 10 and none of them very large.

Can't believe that you are using PINK, far from your color choice. However, you do have a lot to choose from. lol

That is quite a stash of pink! And a lot of cutting yet to go. I like to get everything cut first, but sometimes I have to break it up on big jobs and start some sewing before the cutting is finished.
Curious about the ribbons on the wall in the background. You may have talked about them in your blog, but I am relatively new to the blog world. What are they from?
Komfort Kove looks beautiful. Would love to see the whole thing! : )

What a huge pile of pink. I may have two pieces of pink fabric so this just is overwhelming. I am not a pink/red fan but recently I have been wanting to do a pink and brown quilt. Your fabric pile is encouraging me to put my thinking/creative cap on.
