Design Wall Monday

For Design Wall Monday I have photos of 2 projects.
First up is the final lay-out & size of the Cowboy Circle Around. All blocks are done, setting in 5 x 7, now to sew them together and the top is done.
And what started as a 1 block test, ended up being 4 blocks for a quick wall hanging for myself. Three blocks are completed and 1 is almost there. The pattern is called Summer Siesta ( Quiltmaker May/ June 2010 by T. Eisinger). I followed her color scheme with pieces from my stash. These are  huge blocks with 14 1/2 inch square - well, at least huge for me.
That's it from my design wall - please go to Patchwork Times and have a look at other quilting design walls!
Happy Monday,

Guess what: after a longer break I finally went back to the fitness center:
No bugs, not many people, heaven!
And so far my lower back is cooperating!


  1. Great the colors. Keep us posted.

  2. Love the circles. I was looking at that very block last night and decided I had enough started! Good idea to make a wall hanging. :-)

  3. LOVE the fabric choices for the "Cowboy Circles." That is going to be a great quilt.

  4. Oooh, ahhh... love both of those. I bought the magazine with the circle quilt and I am using a Moda "Hello Betty" for it. I have not had much luck in the on point blocks or diagonal set as they are toooooo stretchy, any tips?

  5. I love the circles and the other blocks are wonderful also. What size are the circle blocks?

  6. I really like that Siesta quilt and your blocks are lovely.

  7. Love your Summer Siesta blocks and your cowboy quilt is so cute.

  8. Love the circle blocks: are they appliqued? The other block really looks tough. Maybe your going back to the gym will inspire me. I have lost weight but just can't get into exercise even though I really need to.


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
