Design Wall Monday

There are quite a few projects here that are in various stages. Some are still being pieces, while others are ready for quilting. I have four quilts that are at the point that I need to hand stitch the binding, but I just need to find the time to do that. I even have a few projects that are still in the sketching stage, but I've started pulling fabric for them. I guess my ADHD is in full force right now.   😄

I've submitted one project to Blank Quilting's American Honor Challenge (There's still time for you to participate!), but I'm still working on the second project. Here's a quick look at some of the fabrics and the blocks in my quilt. I hope to finish this by the end of the week, including the quilting. Keep your fingers crossed.

This quilt just needed to be quilted and bound and I was feeling ambitious last night so I completed it. It was too late and dark to get a good picture, so I'll show it in this state. Yes, that's watermelon fabric. I think it's quite appropriate since Milan hosts the Melon Festival every Labor Day Weekend and it's a really big deal!

You may remember when I was working on the Cathedral Window pillows for an upcoming class. Here's the first sample I made.

I wasn't overly thrilled with my points, so I made an identical pillow and added button embellishments. I like how this one looks. (The picture is not great, but I think you get the idea.)

I taught the class and had a really good group of students. Look at what Chris created. She did such a wonderful job and I love her fabric choices. The floral fabric was left over from the very first quilt she made.

Sharon is mixing things up a bit and she's going to make a table covering instead of a pillow. Look that the fabric she's going to use for the border. We've played around with how she's going to complete this, since the Cathedral Window portion is quilted. She's going to quilt the border and then add it. I can't wait to see this completed.  

What are you working on today? See what other quilters have on their design walls today.

Great projects! Cathedral Windows is on my to-do list.

I made a Christmas pillow a few years ago using this method and ended up putting buttons on my points as well.

Love your choices of blue.

I really like the pillow with the added buttons! They add texture and visual interest. I've made a couple of Cathedral Window practice blocks but I have never tackled a larger project (whether a pillow or an entire quilt).
