I have a design wall! Okay, not really a design wall so much as a design batt pinned to a quilt that is hanging on the wall. But it is a change from my 'design floor.'
Here is the reason for making the switch from floor to wall.Oh sure, this view doesn't look like there would be any trouble. That's because she's exhausted from playing with my blocks and fabrics.
So what is on the wall, you ask.
I have been wanting to make a Carpenter's Star for sometime now. It is really not all that complicated. I think it took longer to get everything arranged with the proper orientation than it did to stitch to pieces.
Last evening I put the last stitches in the binding of this quilt.
It is a project that I worked on via text message with a California Quilt Pal. What fun to snap pictures and text progress, rants and encouragements. Technology sure closes the distance gap. It's the next best thing to being there.
