Design Wall

My mom explained how to make this quilt years ago. She used newspaper for the foundation. I'm using muslin so I don't have to tear it off. It's a scrap quilt, but I have bought a couple of remnants since starting it. My color choices are iffy. Sometimes I like them and then other times, I wish I would have put other colors together.

I saw the preview for a training DVD (on Knitting Daily) about putting colors together. I'm going to research that and consider purchasing. Maybe you get better with practice, but a little self-help / training couldn't hurt.

Check out Judy L's blog to see what other quilters are working on   here.


  1. Scrappy strings just sing together and you really can't go too wrong with color. It's an adjustment to let yourself go.

  2. I think it looks nice, Mom! Someday I'd like to do one of those, although I really like just plain old squares (9 patch, Irish chain, etc.).

    See you later!

  3. I am so glad you have a blog Ava! I always looked to you for my gardening inspiration, I think you know everything about how to grow things (plants, puppies and people!). :) We are living in St. Louis now, so if you ever find yourself here, please come for coffee!
