Design Wall Monday

Technically it's still Monday so I'm going to post a picture of what's on the design wall tonight.

It's the quilt for the newly renovated Milan Library Children's reading area.

Children in the summer reading program each decorated a fabric square and I am putting them together into a quilt. Each block finishes a little over 6" and there will be black sashing between the blocks. I've already quilted each block and they will be sewn together in a quilt as you go method. The center rectangular area that is empty will have a special block in it that spells out READ in vertical lettering.
I'm excited to be making this quilt for the library and am looking forward to seeing the reaction of the children when they see their artwork.  :-)
In case you missed it, click here to see many of the projects that were created during our Old Bags Day Sew-In Saturday. We had a really fun and productive day!
Check out what other quilters have on their design walls.
