{Sew} Modern / Design Wall / BOM's Away Monday

My finish is a scrappy random strip HST. This was a swap with my small Fearless Design group and two of the members gave me all of their blocks as well. I started making shapes on the design wall and then tried to connect them. I'm calling this "STEP on Life's Journey". Our local STEP women's shelter will be receiving this one. I had some fabric of antique postcards that I used in the binding. The fabric's name was "Life's Journey", so that helped me finalize on the name of this quilt. The backing is mostly a 'meadow' with a bit of a horizon with clouds in the sky and the right is the trunk of a tree --ok, use your imagination a little bit ;-) I quilted this with a squiggly cross-hatch. The grid pattern of the piecing made it very easy to follow freehand and made it very fast. I even did this without my stitch regulator which made it even faster! I used YLI thread, 'parchment' color and wool batting scraps pieced together.


My Design Wall is my latest Fall Wallhanging. There is an EQ tutorial with some fun tips as part of SewCalGal's Fall EQ BlogHop that wrapped last week. My giveaway is open through Monday, Oct. 8, 2012 at 9p PST.

My BOM's Away progress includes getting the rivets added to the border of my Skill Builder Sampler. It is now ready to quilt!

  1. Oh my gosh! I just love how she turned out! The rivets around the outside are absolutely perfect.

  2. Beautiful projects. Love the rivets!

  3. Did you find the rivet fabric or piece them? It is the best Border for the Panel in the center! The shelter is lucky to get another quilt this week. It's getting colder.

  4. Wow! Amazing! LOVE that last quilt!
