Design Wall Monday

 

100_0319

I wish I had room for an actual wall but here’s my table in progress.  This is Sugar Pop! by Liz Scott for Moda, another charm pack, this one paired with a dark almost turquoise solid (it looks very green here for some reason).  I’ve had a zigzag quilt on my list for a while now and I used that method where you sew two fabrics RST around the edges and then cut on the X.  Quick & easy, we’ll see if I can get this top finished today, I have to go in to work soon.

Here ‘tis!  Might add a border in the blue but I love it with the morning sun shining through.  Boy was I sick of triangles, lol.

Editing to add Monday night’s progress (hope you can see the tons of stitching).

I’ve decided to attempt hand quilting this Central Park #2.  I don’t have a walking foot and want simple straight line quilting, I’m afraid my less than stellar meandering will distort the nice lines.  If it goes well I’ll also hand quilt this one from Saturday’s sewing marathon.

All three are terrific. I especially like the colors in the top one. Having a design wall is nice. But if I really want to see what I've done it still gets laid out on the living room floor.

All fun! I love the teal color in your zig zag quilt. It is going to be so cute.

I especially like the zig-zag quilt but the others are lovely also.

That Sugar Pop and turquoise looks divine! I also like the other, the quilting makes it look so sweet!

That is such a pretty turquoise with the triangles. The zig zag is a great layout for it.

Hello Amy! All your quilt tops are so beautiful! I haven't made zig zag but it looks exiting and I'd like to make one! I love also to use lots of white with other colours, so your third quilt is my favorite!
Thank you for your lovely words! Teje

I am going to use some Sugar Pop to make HST, too! I really like it paired with the darker color that you chose.

Best of luck with the hand quilting!

I'm impressed, hand quilting!! I don't know if I'll ever.... and I love your zig zag! I have had an idea bouncing around in my head forever, you've moved me one step closer to getting it done :) Thanks for linking to Fabric Tuesday.
