Design Wall Monday

Hopefully, this will be the last week I have Moonglow on my design wall because I am almost finished!!! 


Saturday night I finished up the FINAL BLOCK!!!  Look at all those points!!!

This block actually went together better than I thought it would.  


I allowed extra fabric for the curved outer sections and then trimmed off the excess as I squared it up after the block was assembled.








It worked out great doing it that way.  Much less painful than I had imagined – yay!!!  =^..^=


Yesterday I sewed all the rows together - it's almost a quilt!!!!  Then I cut all the strips for the SEVEN borders to complete it.  I decided to wait until today to start sewing them together and attaching them to the quilt center because I hate attaching borders and I don’t want to try to tackle them when I’m tired.  Smart, huh?

I'm sorry this is not a very good picture!  We took it just as the light was disappearing and a storm was coming up, so it is rather dull in this shot.  I’ll post a better picture of the completed quilt top just as soon as I finish it – promise!!!

Judy pulled #2 for the UFO Challenge for May, which is Vintage Valentine on my list.  Wow – another toughie! 


This is an appliqué hearts quilt.  I think I have four blocks done.  It’s going to be another beauty though, and the appliqué will be a nice change from the intense piecing in Moonglow!  I’ll start on it as soon as I can.  But first I have to begin working on my niece Raney’s quilt.  She graduates this year and goes off to college, and I want her to have a nice, soft lovable quilt from her Aunt Terrie when she goes! :*)

That’s it for my design wall this week – what’s on yours?  Go to Patchwork Times to see what others are working on!

Hugs & Blessings!

  2. Your Moonglow is stunning. Just a few more borders to go. What an accomplishment and I bet you are glad it's coming to a close.

    Vintage Valentine looks very sweet. You are making much more progress with your quilts than I. I'm jealous, but also impressed. :)
