Design Wall 5/16/11

Design Wall 5-16-11


Well, doesn’t this wall look busy? First off, on the left, we have the first 5 blocks of Esther’s Heart’s Desire BOM. All done and boy, was I ever proud of my accomplishment. She gave us the center block one month and then in March she gave us the outer four and two months in which to do them. It took me all of that two months but I finished at the last moment. I was looking forward to the next block until I looked at it Saturday night. It is a beautiful block but we have four, again, to do but this time we only have one…YES, I SAID ONE… month to get them done. I will probably not even try to get them done on time but tomorrow I will begin prepping. You really should go over to Esther’s blog to see our new task/treat.


The little colored squares are the beginning of a batik quilt. I designed a block for this quilt but as I began piecing I have changed my mind and right now I am just making little blocks, lots and lots of them, and will decide how they will be placed, later. I really love how the batiks pop when sashed with black.


Unfortunately, you can also see my feathered star, still without a border. This UFO is not getting done at this rate. But it is still on the wall, just to keep me from forgetting it.


Now, don’t you forget to go to Patchwork Times to see how other quilters are getting along.

That's right. Keep the UFOs on your wall so you don't forget them like I do, tossing them into a corner, letting them pile up forever! LOL.

Your Esther's blocks are incredible. Good luck this month!

I like the little batik blocks - can't wait to see what the finished quilt will look like. Thank you for commenting on my jacket - it's a Nancy Erickson pattern (www.fashionsewing.com).
