Design Wall Monday again??? Yep - and jump over to Patchwork Times to see what some creative folks have been up to.
I started a quilt for my niece - I'm naming it One Particular Harbor. It will be quilted using a shore motif and teal color thread. Two rows down, 4 to go. Will finish this quilt top this week.
The pattern I'm using for One Particular Harbor came from an old quilting magazine and is a 16-patch quasi-log cabin block. The blocks will be put together into a "Barn Raising" pattern.
Also this past week I put together the 9 blocks in the Home Tweet Home series. I was quite delighted to find that so far, I've been able to use only fabrics from my stash. I still need to add sashings and a border but I think even that will be from my stash. I need to blanket stitch, or do some type of stitch, to secure the applique. And I think I'll machine quilt this myself in an overall meander. There are lots of embellishments that can be done to this piece - the pattern shows a couple of pieces with thread "nests", beaded chains for hanging the birdhouses from tree limbs, and I'm sure more opportunities for embellishments will appear once I start looking at it in that frame of mind.
