What is on my DESIGN WALL?

Posted By on May 23, 2011

I don’t ACTUALLY have a design wall – but I will show you what is on my DESIGN FLOOR this week.

It is sao’s ROAD TO BROWNWOOD QUILT (a Judy Laquidara design – the pattern is on her website at www.patchworktimes.com)  Last week I made the border blocks and the other borders *it seems like that always takes me a LONG TIME.  I love pieced borders.

Now, this week,  I have to make the back and binding…..and VOILA, it is ready to be quilted!

sao's Road To Brownwood

AND…..ta da…..also on my design floor (to admire because I made these last week) …..

My first ever POSTCARDS for the RMQG swap in June.  They are fabric on the front and scrapbook paper on the back…….with FAST2FUSE in the middle to make them stiff and ready to mail!  Our CHALLENGE was to make them seasonal….and so *as you can guess* mine are fall.  I figured EVERYONE would choose Spring or Summer – so I decided to be different.  I love FALL and WINTER too – and came pretty close to putting snowpeople on mine.  LOL

    “The Road to Brownwood” looks like a tile floor, so it’s appropriate that you have it on your ‘design floor.’ Looks great!

    My group wants to make this quilt now after seeing yours. Just beautiful and I love the colors – talk about comfort levels – it worked so well. The postcards are certainly winners. Thanks for sharing. Judy C

    Shirley, your quilt is gorgeous! Jury’s designs are awesome, aren’t they?

    I’ve made a couple of postcards before, but not with paper. Do you fuse it? Will it hold up to the USPS?
