Design Wall Monday: May 12, 2012

It's been a very busy week at the Three Cats Ranch.  Pretty much everyone had a birthday.  Matthew was home to help celebrate.  George spent most of the week in the hospital.  I cooked a birthday celebration.  With all of that going on, it seems as if I didn't spend much time sewing.  I did manage to finish a couple of projects, however.

The last of the Mr. Bear blocks is finished.  I'll need to add the borders to the block, and then I'll be ready to sew all the blocks together and finish the quilt.


The Winged Dreams quilt came back from the quilter.


I think my quilter did a good job on this.  I like the combination of flowers and butterflies she used, and I like the red thread.



I still need to bind this quilt and I'll be using that same red fabric that I used in the border.

Finally, I spent the better part of the week finishing up this stadium blanket I've been making for Erik and Mae.


I turned this quilt


into an easy-carry, all-in-one bundle.  Check out my tutorial to see how I did it.

You did so well on all the projects, but I particularly like the Winged Dreams, your color selection is wonderful. I also plan to take a look at your tutorial, I think I know a few folks who could make good use of it.

You did a marvelous job making the stadium quilt a carry-quilt! Very clever idea!!! I love the quilting design in your Winged Dreams quilt - perfect to use recognizable images to show up in the big white setting triangles. And Mr. Bear is just simply TOO CUTE!
