I actually have a couple of things on my design wall. The first is the finished quilt top from my Design Wall Monday post on December 13. I finished the top up late yesterday and here it is with Munchie posing in front of it.
She is really thrilled with it and has already told me she wants Minkee backing….maybe in purple or blue! I’ve used Minkee before, but never on this big a quilt, so will be exploring quilting and batting ideas.
That leads to my OTHER design wall…..This will be part of Mini-me’s bed quilt. Panels can be such a pain in the behind to work on. See how wonky this one is? It curls up on both sides, none of the dinosaur blocks are anywhere near the same size, and it is really small. I bought it as a kit for Mini-me when he was maybe three years old. The kit came without directions to piece it, so I just put it aside for a couple of years. Mini-me initially wanted a Spiderman quilt, but has since decided he prefers the dinosaurs. Now that Munchie’s top is done, I can’t quilt it until I get Mini-me’s pieced (if anyone has ever had twins, they understand the equality issues!).
These are all the fabrics together. Believe it or not, none of the dinosaur fabrics are from the same line, but all are from Timeless Treasures, which may explain why the seem to go together fairly well.
This will be a challenge for sure!
Jump on over to Patchwork Times and see what others have on their walls….in fact, I am going there too and maybe I can come up with some ideas on how to lay this one out!
