Design Wall Monday, December 30, 2013

Our last Design Wall Monday for 2013...  I've had so much fun sharing my doings with you throughout.  You've left me with wonderful comments that have inspired me to look at challenges differently.  Can't fail to mention that you've also inspired many "K" quilt names.  I'm looking forward to 2014 in these same ways.

To finish off the year with a bang I was able to complete Kilowatts.  The new owner will love this quilt.  I plan on a solid white back where my quilter can show off her talent.  I think it will be a great addition to the very busy black and whites of this pineapple beauty!

 With the 30's fabric I have in my stash this Block of the Month with Sunshine Quilt Guild by Janet is ready for our next meeting in January.  I tried a 30's in red for the second round of squares, but it was just way too much in my opinion.  The dots made both the other rounds of 30's look perfect.
 Part 5 is finished of Celtic Solstice.  I'm ready to see the next clue on Friday in this design.
Currently on my table is getting back to Krossfire.  I think I'm close to half way finished.  There is still a lot to do, but I'm getting there on this delinquent 2011 UFO.  Between Krossfire and Celtic Solstice I plan to get my Red Strings/9-Patches done for a swap I'm coordinating that is due the end of January.  Most of what I have yet to finish are the 9-Patches.  Those who have made Talking Turkey by Bonnie Hunter...why 2 -5/8" units to make those 9-Patches?

Enjoy others as they close their year of 2013 projects through the links at Patchwork Times.

Another stunning finish on Kilowatts, Sandi!
Of course, you would be all caught up on Celtic Solstice! : ) Do you have a "K" name for it yet?

I just adore your Kilowatt quilt. I never would have thought of black and white for a pineapple, it's just beautiful.

No one gets as much done as you do! I always enjoy seeing your quilts :)

LOVE your pineapple quilt!! I haven't made Bonnie Hunter's "Talkin' Turkey" - but I think that she had some 5-1/2" red string blocks left over from "Orca Bay" and designed the 9-patch centers to fit them. I could be TOTALLY wrong - but it would explain the odd size of the 9-patch units - ;))

Your Kilowatts quilt is stunning. And I love the name!

Kate said...

Kilowatts is gorgeous! Wow!

You are much farther ahead on Celtic Solstice than I am, but I at least have some of each block made.

Have a very Happy New Year!
