Design Wall Monday / WIP

Just have to show you a few photos from my trip to the tulips in Skagit Valley last week with my DH and my parents. So glad they were able to join us this year from Arizona for the spectacular display of tulips.

Quilts for BostonHaving a cousin and a dear friend from college who live in the Boston area....I just had to do something....
....here is my contribution (sorry about the shadow in the shot).
If you'd like to participate: http://bostonmqg.blogspot.com/2013/04/quilts-for-boston.html

Completed three items:
QR Code --see this post. (Finish #5) This one has been sent off for display in the "What's App-ening" exhibit at the International Quilt Festival of Ireland.

Last fall, in preparation to teach my mother's charity group how to do the 1600 Jelly Roll Race quilt top, I made this from a jelly roll won on The Quilting Gallery's "Be My Valentine" on-line contest in 2012. The Jelly Roll was by Deb Strain for MODA, "Be My Valentine". So, I finally got the binding on and here it is. (Finish #7)

And I started and finished a notebook cover (Finish #6). A couple of weeks ago, some local quilters invited me to join them to make notebook covers. They generously provided the stiff interfacing, silk flowers, and organza. My mom was coming to town and she loves Red and she loves Iceland Poppies...so this was close. I added a pen and card holder too.

Front of the holder, silk flowers stacked, organza over the top.
                                                                                       Back of the holder with some subtle quilting.

Looking forward to working on my Honeymoon version of the Storm at Sea pattern again....that's what is up next on my personal 'to do' list, although I missed my personal deadline of having it done one year from the class, which is next Friday...it is just not going to happen given the other priorities in my life right now. Oh well.

  1. Nice! I went to the Tulip festival in NW Washington many years ago, but it just blew my mind with how pretty it was! I really would love to go again! Look me up if you're going to be around this week-end :-)
