Design Wall and a Finish

I’m so happy to have this baby quilt finished.  It was delivered, along with a Bapron, to the new mom.  After sewing down the binding, I’ve decided the quilt job Sophie & I did is just fine.

Since it’s Design Wall Monday, be sure to click here to see what everyone else is posting on Judy’s DWM blog.  Here’s my design wall:

I finished three First Saturday blocks……these first two are the last blocks from “The Fox Visits Provence” series.

And this is the alternate block from the new series “The Fox Has Spots”.

I posted earlier that Barbara Brackman is doing another block-of-the-week (BOTW) in commemoration of women’s suffrage and the blocks are posted each Saturday on her Grandmother’s Choice blog.  Here is block #1.   I’ve elected to use mainly greens and the gold/cheddar of the American movement but will add purple and white to some blocks.

Another project nearing completion is a scrap club top from earlier this year.  I added borders and pieced a backing as I want to finish this lap quilt for someone facing chemo treatments.

Don’t know where those light spots came from but they are not on the fabric!

Now for the stash report which includes these shirt thrift-ed from the Goodwill Clearance Center!


Stash Report –

  • Fabric in:  3.5 yard (fabric from Mumsy which has been washed and used in the backing above and the GW shrits)
  • Fabric out: 5 yards (borders and backing for scrap quilt)
  • YTD Fabric in: 114 yards
  • YTD Fabric out: 57.5 yards
  • Net Fabric In/(Out): 56.5 yards – creeping closer to my no more than 25 yds in goal…… 

Happy Quilting, Cherie

  1. I love the bright green and blue block on your design wall and your baby quilt is so cute! I love the focus fabric with those little elephants and gray color is the “IN” color for baby things now. Your lap quilt will be so cozy and warm for your friend and I’m sure much appreciated. Congrats on being so productive this week with your blocks and stash report.
