Design Wall Monday – January 21, 2013

It’s Monday again. Time to show what is on the design wall today. Stop by Judy Laquidara’s blog, Patchwork Times, and check out what everyone else has on their design walls by clicking HERE

Right now I am still working at assembling my Easy Street quilt. One of my goals for January is to have this made into a flimsy. I just need to sit down and apply myself to get this done! Maybe tonight!!

Here is the baby quilt, all completed. The wind was really blowing, so this was the best photo I could get of it. I think that these are going to be very nice donation quilts.

Saturday evening, DH and I decided to go to an auction. This is a weekly auction and you never know just what they may have to offer. On this particular Saturday, they had some estate items. We were thought we might bid on some furniture – there were some beautiful, solid wood, bedroom sets – but we gave up after three hours of waiting through a LOT of junky stuff!

But DH did get me a couple of quilts! I’m not really sure if these are very valuable. Both are hand sewn. The grey and blue one is hand quilted. The dark, dresden plate is wool and is tied with pink yarn.

I have to work at the office again today, so I better get moving.

Peace

  1. Love the antique quilts you got. I’m not sure what I was thinking when you said the one quilt was diagonal strips of fabric. Maybe I thought diagonal strips set in blocks. This is a very interesting way to make a quilt. The wool quilt has a great graphic appeal. I love the shading. Is is different fabric, or did it fade in some areas? Always fun to study them and figure out what going on.

  2. The striped one looks very Amish-style. I’d like to look at that one closer. I wonder if the dresden plate was cut from wool samples with all those different small pieces. I’d love to look at them next time we’re together. And DH got them for you! Are you lucky or what!! I think our sewing get togethers at your house are helping understand how valuable quilting and your friendships are to you. Either that or he’s becoming the 4th quilty person at our gatherings (ha!).
