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……

…..as 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!

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!

    Cannot wait to see this all done…..love what you have done already!

  4. 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…

  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!

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

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