Design Wall Monday 8-15-11

I rummaged through my fabric stash and found exactly what I needed for a backing and the batting for the flip-flop wall hanging, so it is now ready to quilt. After binding it the last step will be to somehow secure the clothespins to the piece.

And finally, I found a fabric that I'm okay with for the border on the bandana quilt. I really struggled to come up with something I like. This black fabric has dots that are mostly the colors of the bandanas used in this piece so I think it works okay.

My new hobby, however, (like I need another hobby) is making these wreaths that are all the rage right now. Super easy. Not too pricey. And a lot of fun to make.

Design Wall Monday 8-8-11

My Design Wall has't changed much except that I did finish the scrappy star quilt - I love it! I also finished the bargello piece but it's quite slender so I'm definitely going to have to be creative about something for the sides - it's plenty long enough, just not very wide for a bed-size quilt. I didn't take a photo for today's design wall but will for next week. Don't forget to dash over to the Patchwork Times to see all the inspiring creations today.
