Catching Up = Design Wall

But before I share what’s on my design wall I will show how my last wall quilt looks.


It all went together like it had been made to even though I did more ripping and fixing on this quilt that ever before.  I have prepped the borders, the mostly red fabric, but will not be sewing them on until I get some other things done.

Design Wall

Sat DW


This is what I have been working on for the past week.






Henrietts 7

This is Block 7 from Bunny Tails’ Henrietta Whiskers.  It is only prepped for appliquéing but that is part of my plan for this week.



Henrietta 8

And this is Block 8, also prepped for applique.  And after that I will be doing the embroidery.





Boot 6

Next came the Boot Bash blocks.  This is Block 6.  The body of the boot is made with fabric I have been wanting to use for years but never could find just the right place to use it.  I think it makes this boot look special.


Boot 7

Here is Block 7.  I was really excited with this one because of the cactus.  And would you believe that the upper and lower part of the boot are from the same fabric?  Cool, huh?


Boot 8

This is Block 8.  Mine is very different from the original.  I don’t know why I chose the red and white but isn’t this a pretty boot?  I love it.


Crazy Cats 6

And then from the sublime to the ridiculous.  This is Block 6 of Crazy Cats.  I am doing all the cats with plaid and then whatever else that comes to mind.



Crazy Cats 7

And this is Block 7.  Of course there is still embroidery to do but that will come later.







When Nature Calls 1

And last but not lease with Block 1 of When Nature Calls.  The block calls for lots of flowers around the outhouse but I am holding off until I have several blocks done so I can see just what I want it to look like.  I am really excited about this BOM as the finished quilt will reside in my bathroom.  Just a little bathroom humor I inherited from my mother.


Now, if you are not too pooped from seeing all the work I went through last week, hop on over to Patchwork Times to see the work of other quilters.

I thought i was th only nutso quilter out here! LOL. I have an outhouse quilt too! I won a group of blocks about 3 years ago. They resurfaced when I was listing my UFOs but have since disappeared in the mix mash when my mother's quilt room merged with mine when she went into the nursing home.

It was OK. I have been so busy, and had no clue as to how to put them together!

glen: love it

I love the outhouse quilt blocks, where or where did you ever find them!!! When I find I am getting a bit too, well weird about quilting perfection, I do a "ridiculous" quilt because it grounds me. Great job!

Sheryl said...

I love all of the blocks. The boots are awesome, and I hadn't known about that BOM series. Thanks for providing the link.
