Design Wall Monday

After over a week of no sewing time, I finally got to spend some time quilting yesterday. Oh, that sure did feel good!

The first project is Woven by Cluck Cluck Sew. This is pretty small - about 35" x 42" so it was pretty quick to put together. The top is complete but I have to decide on my backing. I have a couple of options and will try to get this quilted and bound tonight. I really like this pattern and have cut out and started sewing another one. Only this time, I'm making four "panels" like this and putting them together to make a larger quilt. I didn't get pictures, but I will in a day or so. 

Update: Yikes!
I made a mistake on the baby quilt above.
I flipped the bottom half.   Check out the post HERE to see the correction and the larger version I made of this quilt.

Next, I started working on my version of Uptown Girl by Creative Sewlutions. I decided that I wanted to use all music-themed fabrics for the large blocks and since I only had six of them, that determined the size I'm making. The pattern offers seven different size options and I love that!

 I finally decided a layout for my blocks and figured that I'd better take a picture so I don't mix them up. :-)

I've got two more seams to sew and then I have to decide if I have enough fabric to add a border .

What are you working on today?

The Uptown design is great for larger pieces of focus fabrics. I like the music theme! said...

Love both of your quilts especially Woven--thanks to you I ordered it because I always am looking for a good baby quilt pattern. Thanks for sharing!

The woven quilt is very nice, and as Rose suggested, would be great for a baby quilt. I will have to make some notes about using it. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday - I always get fresh ideas from looking at what you are doing. Judy
