It's Monday and I have something on the design wall so.....
I've always wanted to make a red and white quilt and I thought that Judy Niemeyer's Prairie Star would be a good pattern to use. Here's Judy's version, as seen on the cover of the pattern.
My friend Kare was at the same workshop and she too was working on a Prairie Star. This is the only picture I have of her's and it does NOT do the quilt justice. (The fact that the picture is taken with the quilt on a tiled floor doesn't help either!) I love her fabric choices. Isn't it amazing how different they all look?
Kare and I were both sick during the workshop, along with a number of other participants and I have done nothing on my quilt since returning. I'm still not back to 100%, but I'm getting close. Hopefully that means I'll get my quilt finished and ready for quilting. I still have to sew in five of the corner units that are shown in the picture and then construct and add my border units. I've already been thinking about the quilting too.
Since I was still sick this past weekend, I was not able to join a number of my sisters at Ann's house for a long weekend of quilting/sewing/relaxing fun. That made me very sad, but I guess they were thinking of me too. Look what showed up at my house Saturday. I have the best sisters!!
Check out what other quilters have on their design walls today.
