On my design wall

You’ll probably get bored seeing this one but now I’ve got half the rows pieced and up on the design wall. Of course it’s pinned sideways – normally I’d just lay these long skinny rows on the floor but I’ve still got fabric all over the floor and need to cut some more triangles before I put it away. I love how this is coming together!

I also got my oldest UFO pinbasted. This quilt is a prime reason I don’t like to put away partially finished piecing projects. I just don’t ever go back to them. In this case, the quilt in progress became a lap size top with the leftovers being used for a doll quilt. I’ll start quilting this one tomorrow. Just straight diagonal lines and either a meander or maybe stars in the border. We’ll see.

    You’re like a little quilting warrior! I can’t believe anyone can accomplish so much so quickly the way you do! It’s absolutely beautiful — and NO ONE will get bored watching it grow!

    I absolutely love it! The colors are beautiful. I am going to have to look up a pattern for one. Was going to make a tumbler quilt but may change my mind please keep us up to date.

    Oh my, I just love these triangles! I received a 60 degree triangle ruler for Christmas and hope to make one someday soon. Was there something about this one you didn’t like doing?

    Your bed looks beautiful all in red! Can you tell me the name of the rwb quilt on the table, I like that also.

    I love this and really like your color choices. I hesitate with patterns that have triangles but want to make this. I think I need a Go cutter!

    Could you share how you cut your triangles? I really love the look of your quilt and would like to try one. I’m kind of new at this so I don’t have a lot of background knowledge. I love your work and everything you share with us.

    Hi Mary,

    I’ve always enjoyed your blog – it’s very inspiring. I’m wondering if your design wall is something you fashioned for use as a design wall or if it is a commercial product made to be used as a design wall. I definitely could use something like this.
