Design Wall Monday

Another Design Wall Monday and I have a finished top to show!
Here is my jelly roll quilt along top in Plume fabric
with a partial piano key border:

I am still cleaning up after the 70 Circles quilt.
Leftovers and a few kid fabrics ended up in this baby quilt;
nothing sewn yet - just a lay-out of about 35" square.

And I finally took care of the lighthouse / ship fabric, 
that has been 'sailing around' for far too long... 
I added some strips - have to play around some more;
losely following Mary's "Quick Strippie".

Well, that should give me
enough mindless sewing for the week ahead!
It works better for me if I have things prepared
and just commit to a few strips or circles a day.
Otherwise I would never get anything sewn...
They may not be sophisticated tops/ quilts,
but they work for me :-)
and they help my stash control / report!

Please go to Judy's blog and check out other design walls.
Enjoy your week,


  1. Nice work Barb - I really like all your projects and the strippy quilt is so cute - will that be a backing or a top? If you ever need any fabric to add more circles or whatever, come shopping at my house - it's free and my husband will be eternally grateful!! (me too!) Hope your week goes well for you - be safe.

  2. Like the partial piano border - great way to use up those small pieces that always seem to be present.

    The strip quilt is cute - I also have a bunch of nautical prints that I need to thin out. It would be good way to use up fabric and have some baby quilts on hand.

  3. wow love them all but really love the sampler quilt - the use of white is really nice!!

  4. I also like the partial piano key border--helps break up some of the busy-ness. The fabrics you chose are so pretty! I have bookmarked Mary's Strippie method too. I'm thinking of putting together a quick Christmas throw or two.

  5. The partial piano key looks great - I still don't have the border on mine. Have to get to that soon.

  6. great choice to do the piano key border!! perfect finish to the quilt! {and of course love the circle quilt!}


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
