Design Wall Monday

Not much was accomplished this weekend. That is the way it has been going lately, lots of items on my list, hardly anything crossed off!  Here is what I have so far.

First border option

This is what originally had in mind when I was designing this quilt. When it was all laid out I didn't really like it. The borders are too light compared to the center and they don't compliment each other well. 

Second border option

Even though you can't see the whole picture I like this one the best. Look at the one complete section with the gray curly thing and the feathers, that section will be repeated around the quilt. 

Maybe someday I will have a "real" design wall!  Until then I will have to work on the floor and have the pieces scattered everywhere and the occasional dog toy in the mix!  

Head over to Patchwork Times for other quilty goodness!  Happy quilting!


  1. Lovely! I vote for option 2 as well!

  2. Fabulous! My vote is for border 2.

  3. Border 2 needs some of the darker colour too, IMHO. My real designers is still covered and blocked by some totes too. I use my floor upstaires for my quilt yoga...

  4. Very pretty and I use a floor too. And a bed and the couch. :)

  5. I really like option #2. The dark color makes it pop!

  6. I would love to order a stand for my tools I have purchased from your dad. Is there a way to do it online? By the way, your quilt is beautiful!
