Design wall Monday

This week I am pretty pleased with my progress on several fronts - and that doesn't happen too often... So here we go:

First off is the hopefully final lay-out of "Simply a Bloom" - with all blocks done; just the applique still needs to get sewn down and is currently only fused on. This quilt has grown on me, a lot and now I really do love it!

Then I joined the Hexagon-Quilt-Along and started cutting & sewing the first installment. I am using the Neptune fabric line - and this is my first time using a 60 degree pyramid ruler. The next instructions should be up soon.

And last but not least I finished block # 3 of the jelly-roll quilt along - just in time.

That's it from my end, please got and have a look at other design walls at Judy's Patchwork Place.

Enjoy your week,


  1. Congrats on all the progress. You are going to have beautiful hexagons with Neptune!

  2. You have been busy. Doesn't it fell great to get a bunch done!
