I fell down a rabbit hole... on Design Wall Monday

I know it was Easter on Sunday and I feel like I fell down a rabbit hole. I had family over for dinner and it was lovely. Last week I bounced from project to project ... again. Nothing got finished but something else got started. This quilt...


I fell in love with this new fabric line from Abi Hall called On the Wing. You can see it all here. The first fabric I had to have was this bird print...


such sweet little birds on a sunny yellow background. And then there is this print...do you see the birds?


And this print reminds me of a peasant top I made in the 70's... a nice memory!


The pattern I used was Mahalo by Fig Tree. You can see it here.  I used the Charm pack layout but I made the quilt with a Layer Cake.  Right now it is about 62" square and with borders I'll get it up to about 80"...perfect for my bed.

It shouldn't take too long to get the borders on this but there are other projects I need to get to ...NOW!


Soooooo.... today is Opening Day for my beloved Cincinnati Reds...I'll be listening to the game on the radio... tonight is quilt guild meeting...Tues/Thurs I need to run my son to his classes...Wednesday I'm attending a family birthday party...I need to spend some time with my younger son to help him on a class project...and I need to alter my other son's vest for the wedding... yeah... another busy week. Hope there aren't any rabbit holes in it! LOL

happy stitching-

  4. Lovely, lively, sunny prints! Yellow/blue/white are a winning combination. The Cubs lost the opener yesterday. I should start cutting my Baseball Swap squares now....(That's https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/baseballswap/info for anyone unfamiliar with it.)

  13. An interesting dialogue is price comment. I feel that it is best to write more on this matter, it may not be a taboo topic however usually individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers.
