Design Wall Monday

Design Wall Monday

My quilting buddy is moving so I cleared my sewing stuff out of her closet (I have projects and a sewing machine that live at her house!) and look what I found!

I was in a Thimbleberries Block of the Month club several years ago and I’m still trying to use up the scraps!   The pattern is from Love of Quilting, issue July/August 2010, called Nothing But Triangles.  I reduced the size of the large triangles, cutting them from 4 1/2″ strips instead of 6″ and the smaller from 3 3/8″ strips to 2 1/2″ .  I like the repeat of the pattern as laid out, but I might add on to it because I have so many triangles and fabric left, and it looks smaller than I envisioned.

However, this one might go back into my Loose Ends UFO pile for awhile.  I have to get my projects ready for an upcoming quilt retreat!


On the portable design wall:

Here’s the result of my Lil Twister demo at guild last week.  Many had not tried the Twister Tool and it was fun for them to try it and see how easy it is.  Now I’ll sew it together into a doll quilt!

Check out Judy at Patchwork Times for other Design Wall Monday projects.

I just found out that I won something on ThreadTales blog!  I’m so excited to win this book!  This is a great blog to follow for machine quilting ideas!

Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’ !

  1. Love your version of Nothing But Triangles. I’ve got a sticky note on that magazine page and might get around to making it myself someday. Hope you get time to finish it soon.

  2. Your triangles are wonderful! Keep on going and make something bigger that you love. Don’t you just love how strangers have all sorts of advice to give you more work 🙂

  3. I really like both quilts and the triangles quilt is really interesting. I have the twister tool and havent tried it out yet. I think I need to get it out!
