Design Wall Monday

Another finish!  I can’t get into the whole “process blogging” thing, I like to show & tell.  Though I will show you how I almost laid this out.

Sounded good in theory but horrific when I laid it out.

My nighttime photos are pretty awful, I’ll try again before I gift it.

This is Central Park by Kate Spain for Moda.  My first “designer” fabric purchase in many years and I adore it!  Hand tied, machine quilted in the borders.  The border squares were pinked & raw edge appliqued.  The binding fabric was some purple tie-dye cotton I found that went with the line pretty well, I thought patchy binding with the remaining scraps might overwhelm it.  The back is white.  Quilt measures 36” square and I really need to work on that whole mitered border thing, I got it but it took a lot of fussy sewing.

Up next on the hit parade is a little work quilting & I’d like to make another biscuit quit in satins.  We’ll see how long I can hold off before I buy more charm packs, I think I might become an addict!

Thanks for stopping by & don’t forget to check out Judy’s blog for more Design Wall Mondays!  I’m also doing my first Quiltstory Fabric Tuesday!

that is just adorable. I like the way you actually have rather than the "almost" way. Very very cute.

all those little "pillows" are adorable, and I really like the "randomness" of the border applique. Beautiful!
