Design Wall Monday #45

Last night, instead of watching TV or reading a book, I finished up the Arrowhead quilt top... here it is and I just love it!
To read about the start of this quilt - click here. Even though the blocks were made by different people, and even though the block edges are bias (I used Best Press Spray before trimming the blocks), the top came together perfectly! Then I had to figure out how to get the borders and binding from the fabric that was donated. At this point I could pass the project on to another guild member to finish, but I have become attached to it and want to see it to the end, so I'll keep it until after Christmas to quilt and bind.

This photo is really a testament to the motivating power of Judy's "Design Wall Monday". Near the end of the weekend, I start thinking about Monday and what to post on my blog, and it motivates me to work on a project to post. I'm sure I will continue with the practice of posting a photo of what is on my design wall on Mondays in 2011...it really helped me this year! Thanks Judy!

YEA! for getting it to this stage. Is it called the "Arrowhead Block?" I love my Design Wall Mondays. I get to Blog hop all of my quilting buddys BLOGS across the country. My E-mail alert on my Phone gets a workout, too.
