Design Wall... what's on it?


Lots of things going on here other than berry picking.  This baby boy quilt is already to quilt and I am debating bindings.  I have the greeny dots but Husband is thinking Kona Ruby because of the little bits of red in the quilt.  What do you think?  I am thinking the red is a bit much for a baby quilt.  If it were a red print or red with dots or something to break it up, I would be happier with it.  Hmmmmm.



This is really on the design wall.  My proverbial quilt.  Next up is the word "sunshine".  I am getting in the swing of this.  It was really helpful that Mum traced out all the letters for me.  Big hugs to Mum!!!


Next up.  This is really just in my design brain.  Not yet on the wall.  I have a half yard of this print from Cynthia Frenette's Kona Modern Quilts for Robert Kaufman.  Yep, I do.  Cynthia is one of the founders of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild and this is a guild challenge.  I must make something using only this piece and any other print from the collection or any Kona solids.  Fun!


Tomorrow Mum and I will can peaches.  Husband will be picking berries and maybe I can squeeze in a bit of sewing time.  I only have one more week of holiday!!!  Yikes, I cannot believe it!  Linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday!

  1. The red would definitely pop, but I think it'd work with the green as well. You could really go either way.

  2. Which ever color you choose the quilt will look amazing. Love reading your blog and seeing your creative process. Good luck canning the fruits with your mother.

  3. Love your quilt center. How about one or all of the blue scraps you have for the binding, but then again since it is only the narrow binding the red would work, so would the green - I'm no help, LOL. Sure it will be nice whatever you pick.

  4. I like the greeny dots for the binding! And I can't wait to see what you do with the fabric, I still can't decide what to do with mine lol!

  5. Big decision! I like both but I think I would go with the red. It will make those bits of red in the quilt pop right out.

  10. I like both colors of binding, but I do think the green makes it look more like a baby boy's quilt :-)
