Design Wall Monday - Oct 31

I can't show you what's on my design wall today, because it's the sneak peek for November's block lotto.  But, I do have a couple of things to show you today.

First, my pink quilt is progressing through the quilting stage.  I've completed most of the center of the quilt, and one round of the border.  Two more border rounds to go, and then some small (4x4") squares in the middle that need quilting still.

Second, I have my next quilt - or at least the fabric for it picked out.  Here's where I need your help. What quilt pattern would you use for this?  I want something that will highlight the pink flowers, and I'll use the stripe for the border.  So I have a focus and 2 colours.  Any suggestions for quilt patterns with this set of fabric?  I thought about a disappearing 9-patch, but I'd really like to do something I've never done before.

So, after you leave me your quilt pattern suggestion :) hop over to Judy's blog to see what other quilters have on their design walls this week.


  1. I'm with your thought of making something a little different from the D9P. I have 16 different layout versions of the D9P though. There's always the D4P or the 4 to 9 patch pinwheel too. I'm thinking of Warm Wishes as an alternate.

  2. Such pretty fabric! I would consider an irish chain with big floral blocks and green/pink/green chains.

  3. I like the Irish chain suggestion, that would be beautiful with the fabrics you have.

  4. Your pink quilt is so pretty!! :)

  5. Do you want to leave the floral print mostly intact? As opposed to cutting it up? Look at some of the star blocks with a big center.... Lovely fabric
