Design Wall June 10, 2013

I saw both these designs on two of the quilt shows I watch on television.  The first one is Elle's Quilt in a Day show.  I thought I'd try them both out maybe for tablerunners.  My sister is coming for her annual vacation from Singapore and I thought I may make one of these up for her.

The first one is called Twin Sisters.  I would be totally scrappy.  I experimented with a couple of sizes.  I really like the large blocks when piecing a large quilt and the small one for maybe a tablerunner or corner blocks.

I think this one is called Twirling Triangles.  This one I saw on Fons and Porter.  I just happen to have a 60 degree triangle and  thought I would try it out.  I like it.  I goes together great,.  No "y" seams, just straight line sewing.  I've made a couple of halves.  This picture was taken when I'd only had one done.   I like it.

This post is being linked to Judy's Patchwork Times.  Come have a look around and see what everyone is working on.

Last Week in My Quilt Studio

I have been working on finishing some projects before my daughter and her children come to visit this summer.  Jessee's quilt is finished.


Then onto Jana's quilt.

I'm binding it now in the evening when I'm watching tv.
I have had this top done for awhile and thought this morning that it would be nice for my youngest granddaughter, Dani.  It's a lap quilt and I'm backing it in two shades of purple flannel.

I wanted to get something posted to my blog seeing that it's been more than a month since I've posted.  I have a couple of drafts and will try to get them posted in the next few days.
