Design Wall Monday

There's a traffic jam on my design wall today.  :-)

This first quilt it what's actually up at this moment. I have three of the five rows sewn together and will have the other two done later today. Since I'm not adding borders, this top is almost ready to layer and quilt. YEAH! 

This is a free pattern that a friend got from The Fat Quarter Shop, and it's called Charm Pack Cherry Quilt. This is made entirely from stash and I think I even have fabrics for the backing and binding. This makes me VERY happy.

This is Avery's quilt that is finally quilted and the binding just needs to be hand sewn down. I should have had this done seven months ago, (she is seven months old today!!). I'm going to see her later today and since I'm not subbing today, maybe I can give it to her as a birthday gift.  :-)

This is not my quilt. It's Jack's. I was sewing with a group friends this weekend and Jack saw Chris working on a fabulous black and white star quilt He was inspired to pull out his long-ago-started quilt and get busy working on it. 

As you can see, the blocks are all done and he has sewn the top two rows and sashing together. It's a good thing we looked at this because Jack found a mistake on the bottom row. Now he gets to spend some quality time with a seam ripper. :-)

Jack and Jerry spent some time checking out border options (as you can see above). But, they were also already discussing the actually quilting Jack plans to do. He has been thinking about the quilting design since he started piecing this. He is really excited to get to the quilting. 

Here's the inspirations quilt. I love this Chris and can't wait to see the borders!!

Jack was very clear in his time schedule for finishing this quilt. He reminded me that he has an on-line class to take for the next two months, he has a couple of concerts for which he has to prepare, and he still has his regular schedule of teaching to maintain. I think we was worried that I was going to push him to work on this every day until it's completed. :-)  Silly man! He hasn't yet learned that I completely understand the value of a UFO. :-)

Want to be inspired or just take in a bit of eye candy? There are lots of people showing off what's on their design walls today.

Lots of great eye-candy today! I want to play with that charm pack pattern some day (use up my left over charms).
