Design Wall Monday – 05/23/2011

This is what’s on my design wall, after I finished piecing this medallion top from the triangle exchange I participated in last year.    



Here is the top, waiting for its turn on the quilter.  I think I may consider making this quilt again someday; but if I do, I’ll want to use neutral fabrics that read as solids as the light fabric in the triangle squares so the pattern is more visible.  This is the first quilt I have made with mitered borders.  It is small, about 57 inches before quilting.  I think I may name it “Just Do It” since I debated a very long time about whether or not to attempt it.  The design is by Edyta Sitar in her book Friendship Triangles.

I really pushed this weekend to complete this flimsy so it wouldn't be a distraction as begin work on the latest installment of the Civil War Chronicles quilt, which we received last week.

This was my first mitered border quilt too!! I went to the lqs and had some tips on how to do it and I love my quilt. I am not sure how to quilt it, it is in line for finishing. What are you planning for your quilting? I am thinking something like a leaf/vines/ribbons. Not sure because the triangle are so small....
