31 august design wall

My latest design wall pictures

Mondays seem to come by so quickly.
On my design wall is the beginning of a Christmas quilt.
It is foundation paper pieced.
I love doing this type of block as the points are all so sharp.
These starter blocks will be shown to Grade 8 art girls at
my daughters school.
Until next week ,
Happy sewing

Monday design wall

My design wall has the beginnings of a charity quilt.
I am using a modified EPP bachelors puzzle block.
I am not doing paper piecing and have thoroughly enjoyed this block.
Our guild leader showed it to us at our last meeting.
This quilt will go to CHOC

Until next week
Happy quilting
