Deana: Design Wall Monday

Yes, it is design wall Monday and I am pleased to post my first picture with my new design wall up and ready.  I had my husband staple it to the wall just Saturday night.  We did two walls, actually, because a quilter can stick quilt blocks any where there is space in the sewing room.

My wall is  sporting my Quilter's Garden mystery row quilt.  I LOVE how it has turned out and I especially love the variety it has due to the beautiful swap blocks I have received.  I have liked that the group can swap just one or several blocks according to their preference and time limits.  

I need to finish up some hand work on my "Rotaries in Bloom" and make two sewing machine blocks.  Other than that, I am all caught up.  I just finished the design for the February row and will hopefully (fingers crossed) get it sewn up and ready for release by the end of the week.  I am also expecting two more blocks to arrive in the mail any day - one from Texas and the other from Australia.

This project has challenged my design creativity and introduced me to many new quilting friends. The group is amazing and talented, honest, and genuine.  You're the best! I just LOVE QUILTERS! 

The bottom of my design wall has just enough room for a couple rows of my Grand Illusion that I hope to have finished a a top today.  I am VERY PLEASED with how it is turning out! 

Linking up with Patchwork Times

and BOMs Away.

  2. Love it. So glad you have the design wall up and functioning. Wish I had one!

  3. i love love love those blocks with irons :)

  4. Your Quilters Garden blocks are amazing. Everyone in your group must be so proud of their work. Are all the designs original to each person or are some of the patterns available online somewhere? I'm really liking it!

  5. Ignore my questions. I found my answers when I was checking out the rest of your blog. :)

  6. Deana it is wonderful to see those blocks all come together! They look fabulous! Every block in Quilter's garden is so clever and well designed!
    I have to say, yours is a greatly improved version of Grand Illusion!
