Design Wall Monday - September 8, 2014 (Workshop Quilt #1)

Last Thursday I attended a workshop through my day time guild.  The workshop was making two quilts at once out of an easy strip set with a couple of simple cuts.  The idea was very interesting so I decided to attend and do mine in scrappy Christmas.  Not only would I not have to buy anything but I could finish the two quilts and take them to fall craft shows to try and sell.

The pattern we used is called Bamboo and Pinwheels.  I have all the blocks made for both quilts and was laying out the first of the two quilts yesterday so hopefully can work on getting it pieced together this week.  Of course this is the pinwheel quilt, the Bamboo quilt has both a totally different block look but it also will incorporate a small vertical sashing so no one will ever think they were both pieced at once.  

I enjoyed both the concept and am really liking my results.

This week I need to:
1.  Get binding on my fall panel quilt
2.  Quilt customer table runners
3.  Quilt customer quilt
4.  Identify and make backings for several of my table runners
5.  Work on sewing the blocks together for the above quilt.

Happy Quilting

Looks like a fun Project. Do you sell a lot of Quilts at your Craft Fairs? How big is this one going to end up. Great to use you Stash and not have to go out and buy anything.

I like this clever quilt. Will have to look into the pattern, but just by looking at images, I think I can figure it out. Thanks for sharing!
