A design wall on Monday

Well I got some new light bulbs at Wally world and got my son to replace the burned out ones and then I could take a picture! Here's the blocks I have done so far.



This is pattern Jelly and Jam by Fig Tree quilts and the fabric is the Verna line last year from Kate Spain. I LOVE that Verna line. I've already made a table runner and a small Schnibbles quilt from it and I think this full size quilt will be pretty too. I'm going to make it 8 blocks square and then add a generous border. Here's a close up of one block.



It is made with a jelly roll and I'm using Kona Snow for the background. I thought I had a bunch of this fabric but last night revealed that I had less than a yard so I went off today to purchase some. It seemed like it should be an easy task but I ended up going to 2 Joann's and then finally Hobby Lobby before I could get some. By the time I got home there wasn't any time to sew before dinner. Oh well I may get a block or 2 done tonight. Every little bit helps.

Happy stitching-
carol fun

  3. Great pattern and I love the fabrics you put together. Don't you just hate it when you have to drive all over the place looking for something to finish a quilt?
