Design Wall Monday - May 5, 2014

I actually have a big nothing on my design wall this Monday.  The last thing I was working on was a backing and I didn't think showing a huge piece of purple fabric would be very interesting.  Instead I will show you the two kids quilt tops that I completed last week.

This first quilt was made out of a Moda Celebration Jr. Jelly Roll.  Someone said the blocks look kind of like hinges. It was fun and easy to make.

The second quilt is another simple quilt using only strips of fabric (recently purchased at Hobby Lobby) with a simple checkerboard.  The Orange is a little more "in your face" than I had planned but thats ok.

I do really like the animal print, here is a close up.   I think I have a yard of the fabric left so it will find its way into another project SOMEDAY.

I don't think I will set many specific goals this week.  Quilt a customer order and then just to make sure and sew a little something most days.  That will get a lot done and since I don't know what I will be in the mood to sew on this week and I don't have any deadlines, that will work.

The little animal print is so cute! I love it with the orange. And your "hinge" :) pattern is really nice, too. Great pattern for the jelly rolls.

Sweet! I love the look of the first. I need to try that pattern one of these days.

I really like the first one. I need to try that pattern. The second one looks good to. It's great when you can make a print do the work.
