Design Wall Monday

I didn't meet my weekend goals, but I'm happy with what did get done. (In all honesty, I think my goals were pretty lofty so what did get done was actually pretty good, and I'm ok with it.)

The Midnight Blue Star quilt is ready for the binding to be hand stitched. 

I did a fair amount of quilting on this 48" x 48" quilt, but it was nothing special. I decided that since I was using my domestic machine, I didn't want to go crazy and try to do anything fancy. My goal was to just get it done! Here's one of the corners where you can see a bit more of the quilting.

And here is a picture of the back of the quilt. I purposely used a thread that is a bit darker than the backing fabric because I wanted the quilting to show.

And here's the back of the corner that I showed earlier. I'm glad I checked the back because there is a messy area that I didn't notice before. Do you see it? I've got to fix that!

I also started on my Live, Laugh, Love quilt.

Here's a picture of the pattern cover. I know I'm going to change the positioning of the "g" in the word laugh, but I don't know if I'll be changing anything else. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :-)

What's on your design wall?

Thanks for showing the closeup of the Carpenter's Wheel quilt. I like the pieced back!

You did a great job on quilting Midnight Blue. It really works. And, no, I did not notice the mistake and I did look carefully too. I like the idea of using a slightly darker thread on the back to show off the quilting. Your next quilt is really fun.
