Design Wall Monday and We Support You Blog Hop Day 8

It's Day 8!
Tomorrow is MY day. YIPPEE!

Check out the awesome projects created by these talented people 

Feb 9th 

On my design wall is a quilt top that has been finished for a while and has found its place in one of my "Tubs of Shame."

Here is my version of Judy Niemeyer's Stepping Stones.

Stepping Stones, Batiks, Paper Piecing, Judy Neimeyer

I changed the border on my version. It looks really pink and purple in this picture, but it isn't really that bad. I'm not sure why it looks like that. Anyway, I changed the borders for a couple of reason, but mainly because I was using scraps for this quilt and I had a bunch of these pieces that I wanted to use. 

So why is this on my wall today? Because of a text conversation I had with my niece Sarah. Sarah sent me a message a couple of weeks ago saying that she had started working on her version of the same quilt and I said something like "Maybe you will be the inspiration to get mine quilted and bound." Well, then she said "Let's challenge ourselves to get these both done by Mothers' Day." I agreed and then did not even get mine out of the tub it was in.

Well Sarah finished her quilt this past week and is ready to sent it to the quilters. Not only was she the inspiration I needed, she was also that swift kick in the butt I needed to get this out, put it on the wall, look at it for a few days and then decide how I'm going to quilt it. Any suggestions?

The next time you see this, it will be quilted and bound. Done, done and done!

So what's on your wall today?

You can do it Aunt Jo!!! It took me 4 or 5 years to get the top done from when I actually bought everything and started it, but I guess that's what happens when you have too many projects going, move from Alaska to Washington and back to Alaska, and have boy #3, lol. Now that I actually have my own sewing space it went together quite quickly. I just mailed this off to my quilted last night and should have it back in a few weeks so I can finish up the binding. I can't wait to see how you quilt yours. Love you tons!
