Design Wall: April 30, 2012

 

004

OK, this is probably my most boring design wall ever.  However, this quilt center is sewn together and now I just have to decide what to do with it.  I have thought of doing a convergence kind of design with it or just add a couple of borders to it.  It is destined to be a charity quilt but I want it to be something fun for a boy.  Oh, and to the left you can see the backsides of several fire appliques for “the dragon”.

I did finish my color challenge mini quilt.  I blogged about it here.  I am really pleased with myself because I have been able to keep up with these challenges and have used only stash fabrics.  This one is now on my bedside table where it is getting a lot of use.

Because I have been mostly bedridden with a cold since Friday, that is all that has been accomplished.  I was planning on getting the backing for the dragon this weekend but I didn’t make it to a quilt shop, or anywhere else, so it will have to wait until later this week.  I have always planned on him having a black background but am having some thoughts about dark blue.  I want to get that fabric and get him pinned on so I can see him in all his “glory”.  Then, while I applique him I will be thinking about a border: this is a quilt you know.
