Design Wall Monday

I hope you all had a great weekend. I attended a small shower for Daughter #1 on Saturday and presented her with both quilts for Baby E. She loved them! I have already shared the Dino quilt with you and Friday I will show you the finished shirting quilt.

But this is what is on the design wall today.

I also have most of the top done for the Intrepid Thread challenge .

I may add to this. The rules of the challenge allow me to add some of my own fabrics. I’m thinking I will make it into a pillow. Not my usual thing to sew! But as I have been working on this, I have been contemplating its end use. Each year, I am asked to donate to a local quilt show/sale to raise money for Habitat Humanity. I think this would make a great item to donate.

My big project for this week, though, is this:

These are curtains for Baby E’s room. I will be remaking them and adding some appliqué to match the quilt that I made.

I have lots of housework to do today before I can sew. So I best get to it. I hope you all have a productive day!

    I’ve been sewing stars all week, too. Seems to be a theme across QBL recently, but so many different takes. I love your vintage look here. I also admire that you sew outside of just quilts. I do, too. Curtains were one of my “gateway drugs” to quilting. : – )

    I’m glad you are the one doing the curtains and not me. Somehow, I always do something wrong when I try those! It amazes me that in looking at your stars, I don’t think I see ANY of the CW fabrics I have in mine! I like the light/dark alternation in yours.

  7. Kate says:

    The crosses mini is perfect. I bet it would do well as a pillow. Hope you get time to finish off the curtains.

  8. Gina says:

    Love the crosses piece. It’ll make a great cushion. Good luck with the curtains ( and the housework) xx

    You have a knack for making those stars appear truly vintage. Love them all!
    Housework–yup, have to get off this computer and go do some of that myself! : )

  10. Paige says:

    Love stars in any color! Especially love your challenge, can’t wait to see it finished! Good Luck!

  11. Betty says:

    Beautiful stars–love our fabric choices. Good luck with the curtains

  12. Kathy says:

    I love your stars (no surprise since I’m especially partial to CW repros). And I like how your challenge project is turning out. I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of magic you’re going to work on those curtains.
