Design Wall Monday - Feb 27


My design wall doesn't really show it,  but lots of quilting went on this weekend.  I did finish 2 blocks from Dancing with the Stars.  The third is about 1/2 done.  The Monday mystery is still hanging out, waiting for a decision on the corners - that should come out later today.  And the Blogger's block of the month is still up - block number 6 came out Saturday, so I should get to that one this week.




On the more productive side, I finished the February colour challenge.  Bad news is that the quilt store is out of background fabric, and I wanted to bind the sides with that.  I don't know if you can tell with the dark background, but the top and bottom have a purple strip - they will be bound in purple, and the sides in background.  Worst case, I'll bind the whole thing in purple, but I have my eyes open for the background. 

Trouble is, I don't know the exact colour code, and searching the northcott site did not reveal any colours that appear to match exactly.  This is freckles, and the fabric has a slight greenish tint to it.  Maybe it's "antique", but I really can't tell from the swatches online.

In any case, my cats seem to like this quilt.  I laid it on my son's bed for a quick pic, and before I got the camera focused, Rocky had taken up residence.  When I put it on the floor for a more complete picture, Cari immediately came by to check it out.  Cat approved, I'll have to put this one away for a bit.  I'll go on a hunt for backing fabric, and hope that my quilt shop pulls off a miracle and can order the right colour fabric for the end of next month.

  2. Great looking quilt - I enjoyed watching it come together at the retreat.

    I had a similar problem with some fabric - I couldn't tell the difference online, so I sent the place a fabric swatch and they matched what they had.

  3. I love all the blocks on your wall. Your color palette challenge quilt is fabulous. I love your design! Good luck finding your fabric. If you don't find it, it will still look great with purple binding.
