Design Wall Monday

I'm late posting this, but it's still Monday, so I'm calling it good. 😊

Here's what's on my design wall and a few other things that I've completed recently.

This OSU Champions Quilt is ready for binding. This is the fourth or fifth one of these that I've made because they are very popular with Ohio State Buckeye fans. There are four size options on the pattern from which to choose and it is made using squares and half square triangles. I like to make them scrappy, and I made this one as a leader/ender project. This is the small lap size and it measures 50" x 66".

This is a king size Breezy Quilt, minus the borders. I tested this pattern for Rachel Rossi and am very pleased with the results. I had a border sewn on to this but didn't like it, so out came the seam ripper. I've come up with alternate border options and in conversations with the other testers, we all like the new border idea. I hope to get those sewn on later this week and get this ready to quilt. Stay tuned for updates. 

Here are some close ups of the blocks and fabrics. Jack chose these fabrics because he wanted something a little more masculine than what I had picked. It took me a while, but they've grown on me and I now like them. Oh why do I doubt him when he picks fabric? He's right most of the time!

Rachel has some wonderful tips and hints on making these pinwheels, and I know you'll love them. I'll keep you updated on the pattern release date.

I finished this Jelly Roll Rug, made from Quill by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics. I think it's pretty and love the colors.

There are definitely some rough spots in this (mostly around the center when you have to make some sharp turns), but it's really not too challenging to make this. It's time consuming, but not challenging. Using one Jelly Roll yielded a rug that measures 30" x 44". Love it!

Here's a picture taken outside, to try to give you a better idea of the fabric colors.

And finally, here's a 12" Hoop Quilt that I made, just because I wanted to do so.  😄  I love the colors in this and have enough fabric to make at least one more; but I'll use a different outside ring fabric. I have an idea of who I want to receive it and know she'd love these colors.  

What are you working on today?

You have some wonderful quilts (plus one rug) to share. I love your giant pinwheel quilt and the colors are fantastic. Do you have a pattern for this? I'd like to try my turn at one. Thanks for the idea of using a jelly roll to make a rag rug. I also was happy to find the dimensions for the quilt from a jelly roll.

Wow, those are a lot of beautiful projects! The rug is really lovely in how you chose to add the colors, and the Breezy quilt looks like it probably took a bit of time to piece.

I attended a few company events here and I must say that I was impressed every time. The place was aesthetically pleasing with very good decorations and seats. The LA venue had a great layout overall, and was at a comfortable temperature.
