Design Wall Monday

It's Monday again...this week went by so fast I can't believe it! That is one disadvantage to posting on Judy's Monday report..you realize how quickly time goes by and how much you did not accomplish from your list of quilty goals!
However, I am delighted to report that I finally have a finished quilt top on the design wall!


This is from a Robert Kaufman kit called "Permission to Play: Kaleidoscope" that I bought at Hancocks in Paducah in April. I haven't posted anything about this quilt since May 19th, when I posted 3 layouts for blog readers to vote on - click here to see the layouts. My blog readers voted for layout C by a small margin but I decided to sew layout B, because I liked the strong vertical and horizontal lines it created.
These were very trickey seams to sew with a lot of odd angle seam matching to do. Although I don't usually use many pins, these seams needed hundreds of pins to even come close to matching! That's why it took so long...but I persevered and now it's ready for quilting!
If you want to order one of these kits from Hancocks, click here. They come in 3 different colourways - cool, warm and earth tones.

  1. Pretty quilt.

    I stopped using pins ... too many sticks. I use Elmer's Washable School Glue ... thin line and iron dry ... PERFECT. I expanded on an idea from Sharon Schamber who uses the Elmer's for her applique. Sharon is an award winning quilter.

  8. Great colors--love it!

    Those seams look like a nightmare. Kudos for sticking it through to the end. How many times did you get jabbed from all those pins? :)
