Design Wall Monday

It has been a while since I did one of these posts.  This week I have several things on my design wall.

First thing is finish Step 2 of Royal Gardens.  It is my Breakfast club project, which is held at my LQS on the 3rd Saturday of the month.  I got it all cut out this weekend, I just need to sew it all together.  I am loving how easy it is to put together, and the directions are fantastic.  (You can get the pattern at Cozy's Creative Center)

Second is to cut out this lovely baby quilt, which will be a simple rail fence quilt.  I was thinking about doing putting it together strip piecing it, but maybe I should cut each rail out by itself and put it together scrappily.  What are your thoughts?  By getting this cut out this week, I will have made progress on my September one monthly goal.  One step at a time, each week.

Third item to work on is planning out my quilt for my Storm-at-Sea class I will be taking with Wendy Mathson at the end of the month at the San Diego Quilt Show.  I am excited to make the quilt, I have the design picked out, I just need to figure out finished size of the quilt and amount of yardage needed so I can go spend my birthday present.  My birthday present is an all expenses paid trip to the quilt shop from my wonderful hubby.

Fourth thing is to make progress on a surprise quilt.  I want to cut out the next section this week, but I can not do it while dear hubby is around, as it is a surprise for him.  Shhh, do not tell him.  (Due to this fact no pictures, I will share when I get it completed.  Hopefully before Christmas.)

The last item is when I have spare time in the evening, which is to finish knitting the ball of yarn I currently have going on this lovely baby afghan.  I have a deadline, and I'm close to getting it done.  A little bite out of the elephant goes a long way.

  1. Hi Christina,
    You have a lot to share! I love all those fabrics you shared for the baby quilt. I usually strip piece them, but I can certainly see the value in sewing them scrappily. As long as you have time for that, I say go for it! It will be really cute and I look forward to seeing it complete. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Ooh, you're taking a Storm at Sea class? Lucky you! I've been wanting to make one of those for ages, even bought the fabric for it but haven't gotten to it yet.

  3. I love Storm at Sea quilts. I bought a kit in Paducah with all the pieces laser cut. Haven't started on it yet, but your post makes me want to get it out! The fabrics in your baby quilt are so pretty. I love scrappy, but I like strip piecing too. Conundrum! It will look great no matter what you decide. :)
