Design Wall Monday #13

What's on your design wall this morning? You can see a list of other quilters' design walls over on Judy's blog - click here.
This is what is on my design wall today. The winter just seems to be dragging on, and I felt like working with some cozy flannel over the last week. The centre blocks were a garbage rescue (you can read more about it on this post).
The striped/ticking fabric and the pieced borders strips were leftover from a quilt I made for one of the kids' teachers 11 years ago!
I have the snowball blocks sewn together and the first border attached.
Next step is to add more borders to make the quilt bigger... when the flannel is gone, the quilt is "big enough"!

  2. I love your thought. I rarely know how big a quilt is going to be when I start it. Usually when I get tired of working on it it is big enough.

  5. Looks totally cozy! You have all had a very long winter, I agree. I'm supposed to go to Cincinnati in 10 days and am hoping there will not be any snow flurries like they got a few days ago!

  11. What great planning -- when I run out of fabric, it's big enough! Perfect. That's going to be such a snuggly quilt, I can just feel it!

  12. You have made a great looking quilt from those garbage blocks. It should keep you warm until Spring gets there.

  15. I'm working with flannel this week, too. A friend gifted me with flannel scraps. I'm cutting them into blocks for rag quilts. Isn't it fun to make something out of fabric that someone else considered trash?
