This layout was inspired by these quilt blocks made by Deb at A Simple Life Quilts. She used a crossroads block, but it reminded me a lot of the D9P. I love how there are four patches in the corners.
One of the reasons why I love my design wall (which is a queen size flannel sheet) is because if it is a large quilt, I can use the floor too.
Another thing I do when using my design wall is piecing the blocks in columns instead of rows. That way I can put a pin at the top, and not have to fight gravity.
Here is my completed top up on the design wall. I am hoping I can get this quilt finished before the end of the year. :)
This quilt top finishes at 66.5 x 88.5 inches. About a twin size.
Here is a sneak peek at the pieced backing and binding ready to go! My husband is taking the big boys inner tubing, and I am hoping to get a lot of the quilting done now. It is all basted and ready to go. I am planning on quilting it with a golden (but not metallic) thread.
Any ideas for a good name for this quilt?
P.S. I am linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Check out the quilt that Sarah made in a week and a half before Christmas while her husband was home. The amazing thing is that she was able to keep it a surprise.
