It's Monday again


It's design wall Monday and there is something new on my design wall. Here we have nine D4Ps with sashing. The blocks are 10" finished and the sashing will be 1 1/2". With a 6" border, that would make this quilt 48" square. That's big enough for a baby quilt, isn't it? I could make a couple more blocks and set it 3 x 4 but this is looking good to me, I think.





I really like the fabric. I collect owls and that is why I bought the owl print but the other is so very different. And besides, I'm not much into "cutsy wootsy" stuff.







But what I am into is this............

My Going Dotty flimsy/top is done.










I was so excited when I finished stay stitching around the outside that I had to run outside to get some pictures. Of course the sun immediately went behind some clouds. I think it was because he was embarassed to be seen beside something as bright as this.






I had decided to stop at 90 x 90 rather than the 90 x 108 I had planned because I only have a queen sized bed and I figured that would fit. However, I had to come in and throw it on the bed, just to be sure. I have enough fabric to make another row but as you can see it will not be necessary.


I don't have any backing fabric that has jumped out and volunteered for this quilt so I may just have to do some "shopping" to find just the right thing. How awful.


Be sure to visit Judy's blog to see what other quilters are up to.

The baby quilt is looking very good and your DOTTY one is terrific. What a shame you need to go fabric-shopping so you can finish it....LOL

Gosh---I need to get off the computer and get going on my own Design wall project today! BOTH of your quilts are enough inspiration to push me to finish piecing some of my tops today!

Going Dotty is FUN!!!! Yup--your vote for my "random" Paintbox layout sure resembles the Going Dotty :0)

And I'm doing GOOD resisting grabbing some fabrics to try out that D4P!!!!!! 8-)

WHat a beautiful Dotty quilt! As for the baby quilt: I always try to get one done (as in Quilts for kids) that is no wider then 40" so I can use one fabric for the backing and don't have to piece... Call me lazy, but it works for me - and gets my quilts out faster.

Thanks for the inspiration!
