Design Wall Monday

More like Design Frame Monday! Because I finally started quilting my Metropolitan Fair quilt!

I decided to try ditch stitching all the major seams first, and then go back to fill in the rest of the quilting. I quilted a piano key border and this is how I am stitching the pieced blocks:

I am thinking of putting feathers in this red border……

… well as in the alternate blocks. I’m not loving it right now, but feathers usually make everything better, so I have hope that I will fall back in love with it again.

I need to get this off the frame ASAP as I will have QOV tops coming I any day now. Yay!

    A great start on the quilting. Hopefully the feathers made you fall in love with it again.

    Beautiful quilting. I like feathers in strong fabric as it gives texture where design is not so important.

  5. Wow oh wow, everything I see that quilt, I fall in love with it all over again. I can’t wait to see it quilted and bound. It’s going to be beautiful, I’m sure!

  6. Ooh, how exciting! Your quilting looks great so far. Can I ask what brand and model long arm you use, how long you’ve had it, and whether you’d recommend it to others? I’ve been wanting one for a LONG time…
