Design Wall Monday

I’ve made some progress on my Downton Abbey leaders/enders. I now have nine blocks of thirty finished. 

It is growing on me!

I also got the borders on my lattice quilt and put it on the frame. Time to figure out how to quilt it, though I likely won’t get to that until I return from our trip. 


I am participating in the bow tie swap being hosted by Barb over at her blog, Fun with Barb. I chose my fabrics and have my pieces cut.  

Finally, I appreciate all the input of the background fabric for my Brinton Hall quilt I decided on (feels like there should be a drumroll here!) choice number three.  


I have lots to do this week to prepare for our trip. I will try to schedule some posts ahead of time as well as blogging about quilty things I find along the way.  Mr. Wonderful seems quite good at finding quilty things while we travel!

Linking up with Patchwork Times and Cooking Up Quilts.

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I’ve been so busy that I am behind on my blog reading … but I went back to check on the options for the background fabric for your Brinton Hall. I like the one you chose best, too. When are you leaving again … and in which part of the state do your in-laws live?

    Looks like you’ve been really busy. Have a great trip and take time to check the quilt shops out. (I was going to say smell the roses but, really, a quilt store would be much more fun and safe from bees!)

    I love the lattice quilt that you’re working on and I think your choice on the hexi was perfect! So pretty!
