Design Wall Monday -- 01/30/2012

My design wall is still loaded with the Jacob’s Ladder blocks I’ve posted about before.  I hope to resume work on them this week.


I am very happy to make my first “Bound, Labeled, Done!” post of 2012 today.  My Easter wall quilt is completed and ready for display in a few weeks.  This was a project for a workshop in machine applique and is the first of the collection of seasonal wall quilts I hope to complete.  This design is from the Small Celebrations collection by Judydidit Designs. 

I quilted it on my domestic sewing machine using a simple stipple and thread that pretty much disappeared into the fabric.  It had been a long time since quilting on the dsm and it felt really strange.

Surf on over to Patchwork Times to see what other quilters have on their design wall today.

Both of them are very pretty! The Jacob's Ladder pattern is one of my favorites.

Gorgeous quilts, I use a long arm and find quilting on the DSM too painful on my fingers!! Very nice and a finish already this year.

Jacobs Ladder is one of my favorite blocks. It always turns out nicely when placed with the other blocks. Nice things going on here!

Your Jacob's Ladder is stunning. I love making them because each time with the color choices, the quilt looks different.
Your Rabbit quilt is precious. Great job.
