Design Wall Monday - June 17

My design wall looks like this today.  Pretty and green.  And neat and tidy. I am trying to decide if I want to put back my design wall how it was before (just flannel tacked directly to the wall) or do something a bit more durable this time. And something that might protect my new paint job.  I haven`t decided yet, but I do suspect that speed will win out and the old sheet will go back up before long.  And I doubt the tidiness will last past the first stitch.

In the meantime, I did pull out a couple of projects to finish.  There was a moment of panic as I found the fabric from one, but neither of the quilts.  Figured out where I`d stashed the quilts, then I had to to go hunting for the remaining fabric for the other quilt.  But, all bits and pieces are found now, and a plan is in place.  2 quilts that need borders, then on to a new project.

First, I`m determined to finish the borders for swoon.  I completed the pieced border at my last retreat, now I just have to put them all together - all 7 borders.

And then, on to this project.  I`ve decided it needs a border because it`s too small right now for my space bed.  A 6" border all around should fix that problem.  At least I hope it will, because I think that even that little is going to stretch the remaining fabric to its limits.

Check out Judy's blog for more design walls today.


  1. Both are very nice Krista....I love the last one...geometrics of it

  2. Oh, for a neat space. And good going to be able to finish two tops before starting something new. I love the teal one: beautiful geometric shapes.

  3. Your swoon must be huge. Did you make full sized blocks?
