Design Wall Monday

New Year - New Beginnings!

Yes, I'm back and hopefully on a more regular basis. I will try to make weekly posts at least linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times.

I did a 2016 year end review and I am giving away some fabric, so hope you'll check that out too. Last day for the giveaway is today over on the other post.

I've already finished one quilt but it is a top secret, Island Batik fabric design that that will be released at market in May. So, stay tuned for that reveal.

My focus today is finishing up a project that this is a very small part of, but just had to give you a sneek peek.

I'll be showing mine later this month (1/26), but today you get a preview of what I'm working on. This is the Twilight Blush collection of fabric. I'm using the cover design of Wendy Sheppard's book that uses Pre-cuts and stash. We did a blog hop with all the designs last year, but I'm choosing another design from the book to use this collection.

I'll be using a FQ of each and the two creams. The bottom fabric in the photo below is for the backing (from another collection).

Book cover:

 I think it will look quite different given the fabric selection. It is going to be fun to see it evolve.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Nice to see a DWM Post from you today. May Market! Fun to have another Quilt to make for Market. I would love to make samples for a Fabric line. NOT Batiks as you well know though. If you know of anyone looking for a sample maker let me know.
