Design Wall Monday July 9, 2012

A new week presents itself and I have several things to do away from the house but today I get to SEW.  Here is the second quarter section of my Just Takes 2 red and white blocks.  This will be joined today, except for the pesky applique' block I just can't seem to finish.  Of course, it goes in the middle row, far right. 

This is what I did yesterday:
  It's a sample for an X Block swap I've got going with a few members of my guild.   The block is from Sharyn Craig's book, Layer 'Em Up Vol 1 and you can see her video-demo this block here:  Sharyn Craig's Layer 'Em Up  This little sample is 16" x 24" and will probably become a doll quilt for the swap I'm in.  My plan is to practice free motion quilting on this.

Check out Judy L's design wall page to see what others are up to.

Let's quilt!



  1. Gorgeous blocks all the way around! I like the x block too , I will check out the tutorial.

  2. I know just the block you are talking about! I made one in brown and pink but now I have to do my red and white one! it took me a long time but I admit to being a slow appliquer (is that a word) Plus learning the new technique that Gay teaches on applique. Looks like you are keeping up othewise..nice job.

    Happy Sewing

  3. Wow, your Just Takes 2 is really coming along! So far all I've done is download every set of instructions!! I love the batiks in your X Block -- that's going to be a fun one! :)
