Design Wall Monday *********UR Priceless Hoppers Please Scroll Down to the Previous Post

I finally have something to share that's new and exciting. YEAH!!

Besides the coin purses I've made for the UR Priceless Blog Hop (you've got to check them out by clicking HERE), I started my Twisted quilt using the Bar Harbor Layer Cake I was given a while back.

Update: I forgot to mention that there is a giveaway on my UR Priceless post, so be sure to check it out HERE.)

Here's what I have so far. (I don't know what happened to the picture. Yuck! I guess I'll try to take another one and replace this one as soon as possible. Sorry!)

Because I'm using a layer cake, this will be a "controlled scrappy" quilt. Here's a picture of a fat quarter bundle of fabric line so you can get a better idea of what the fabrics look like. I know that the quilt is kind of boring right now but once all the fabrics are done, I think it will be quite pretty.  
I chose a green for the X because many of the fabrics have a touch of green in them, but there is no fabric in which the green is the focus color.
I'm going to make at least one more of these quilts, using solids rather than prints. Check out the lower right corner of the pattern cover to see how it'll look. I'll be using white as my background, just like the picture.

This is the first time I've used a pattern from Gigi's Thimbles (Amber Johnson) and so far, so good. The directions are written quite clearly and the diagrams, especially the cutting diagrams are self-explanatory. I realy appreciate a well-written pattern! I can easily see more of her patterns in my near future. :-) 
Check out what other quilters have on their design walls today.
