Design Wall Monday and some progress

I got some time to sew and these blocks for my Sugar Dish quilt went together quickly. (Excuse my incredibly dusty design wall. I plan to change it this week. And looking at my layout some of those blocks are definitely going to be moved.)

I'm making a quilt big enough for a double size bed so I figure I need it to be 10 blocks wide and 9 rows long. Since the blocks are rectangles this will result in a nice square quilt, just the way I like it. I need 80 blocks and I have made about 75 blocks so I only need to cut out a couple more and work on the dresden plate blocks. Hopefully I'll have time for that tomorrow.

Last week I had a brush with celebrity over this quilt. Allison of Cluck, Cluck, Sew left a comment on my blocks! How cool is that? I love her patterns and will be definitely be stitching up a couple more. Right now I have my eye on her Kaleidoscope and Shortcake. So many pretty quilts to make, so little time!

Happy stitching-

  1. I love your choice of fabrics. Very pretty quilt top. As you said "so many pretty little time" I'm retired and still don't think I will ever make all the quilts I like in my lifetime. And...someone is always coming out with something slightly different, something new or a new technique to try! Toni

  2. Really pretty blocks! This will make a totally delightful bed quilt. Who could be unhappy under such bright and charming blocks!

  3. Love the colours you have used for this quilt - it is going to be lovely

  4. That is beautiful. I can't wait to see it in person!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
