Design-Wall Monday


This lap quilt is on the longarm right now.  I did an almost-acceptable feather in the brown end border (I only have borders at the top and bottom).  Then my plan was to do a combination custom quilting in the blocks and some all-over leaves in the open spaces.  Got about 1/3 of the way across, and … yuck! I was quilting it too densely.  I wanted a looser, softer feel to the quilt.

So I’ve been ripping stitches out.  Double yuck!

I am going to leave the feather on the border(s), stitch-in-the-ditch along the orange secondary border, and I’m undecided on the middle of the quilt.  I thought I might do a big-feather panto in the middle, but it is sure to not come out to a complete repeat when I reach the borders on the bottom of the quilt.  It’s been a long time since I cross-hatched a quilt, so maybe that will work.

I’m going to start a give-away tomorrow, so check back if you’re interested.  Theme:  Tea Party!

And be sure to pop over to Judy Laquidara’s blog to see what other quilters are up to this week.

  1. Oh no, bonding with the seam ripper is not what I call a good time. There are so many other fun things to do. 🙂 I think we all have done this, start out with the grand plan only to have it blow up on us. Hope the ripping goes quickly.
