A dinner menu for Design Wall Monday

Thanks for all the get well wishes- I do feel so much better today. Yesterday evening I had perked up a bit and decided to see if I could finish the Coleslaw quilt and it is DONE!


It measures about 85" square and I am very happy with this one. I'm glad I ordered the extra fabric for the border. It really sets off the blocks.


And here are some of the blocks. I'm going to bind this in the same fabric I used for the cornerstones. And I'm ahead -I already made the binding nd put it in a safe place. (Let's hope I can find it when I need it- LOL!)



And now that the coleslaw is done, I think I'll move on with this dinner menu of a plan and stitch up some more chicken blocks.


I'm planning on doing a dozen dotty chickens and then 6 pieced blocks in the Hens and Chicken pattern. I also want to do a fried egg border. This will be a lap-sized quilt to hang in my kitchen.

I had the best intentions to do the Schnibble for this month's Another year of Schnibbles but it didn't happen. I'm looking forward to see the parade this month and finding out what it the choice for May. Hopefully I'll be able to get that one done.

Happy stitching-

  1. Your coleslaw quilt is deliscious! It has an old timey appeal to it, but is totally modern. You have a great eye.

  2. The coleslaw quilt is amazing. You're right the border adds just the right touch. I'm anxious to see the progress of your dotty chicken wall hanging. You can never have too many chickens hanging about - grin.

  18. Great job on your Coleslaw quilt! Perfect name btw! Without that outer border this quilt wouldn't look nearly as nice. Don't lose that binding fabric, that was the perfect choice!
