My Design Wall, Monday, May 16, 2011

Posted By on May 16, 2011

The title of this post is misleading, because I don’t have a design wall – but I do have a design floor!!!


TODAY my DESIGN FLOOR features Judy Laquidara’s latest quilt  design – THE ROAD TO BROWNWOOD.  I am working on the pieced border now!      I am really loving this quilt.

I still can’t believe that Judy designed this quilt AND posted the instructions for it on her blog ( WHILE SHE WAS in the middle of packing to move, getting a house ready to sell, and looking for a new house in another state!    This isn’t just ANY MOVE either – Judy had to find a home for her chickens too!

I have 24  (YES 24 – and don’t ask……)   5 1/2″ square ORPHAN HOURGLASS blocks using the same gold and raspberry fabric….as you see in this quilt top ……HM….. I wonder how I could incorporate those 24 blocks into the border……

If I can’t think of something, I will put those blocks into a scrappy back!

    Love your quilt. I think you could put those extra hourglass blocks to use around the border somhow even if you only do a few around each corner somehow. I like your colors!

    I love to see how color can make a quilt design look so different. This is really stunning and looks so different from Judy’s Road to Brownwood, which is also lovely.
