On the Wall…..

My design wall has a few new things.   Civil war BOW #15 & #16 and a couple of rows from my Zigzag 9 project (the rows are turned on my design wall – instead of “pointing” to 3 o’clock, they should point between 10 & 11 o’clock).  Judy’s Design Wall Monday post has links to lot’s of great posts here so be sure to check them out.

The zigzag quilt is turning out just how I pictured it would.  The light green background is the exact color I wanted but I had to buy a lower quality fabric to get it.  I could have ordered a Kona solid but I wanted something now.   I bought a quilters cotton from Joanne’s and while it feels cheaper and wrinkles more easily, it seems okay.   I’ll just make sure it’s quilted densely.  Good thing I like the color or I’d be mad about the quality sacrifice 😉

Speaking of scrap club, we were to meet this past weekend but a tornado ripped through St Louis and left our meeting location without power.

Here are my strips all ready to go…….

And speaking of going, I’m headed to Paducah tomorrow for the quilt show 🙂  Darlene & I are staying with the same wonderful hostess we had last year and due to Darlene’s terrific quilt actually being in the show, it’s promises to be a very special trip.  Woo hoo!!!

  1. I have always loved the civil war stuff. Yours is beautiful. And I was wondering why you had made the center medallion such an odd color! LOL. TWO projects make more sense!

  2. I like your CW blocks – I am also so far behind in making mine. But, it’s since to see all of yours, I just might get inspired!
