Design Wall Monday


On the design wall today is my version of Pam Buda's Pocket Patchwork called Tucker. Most of the fabrics in this little quilt are scraps from a block sampler quilt that I finished at the beginning of the year.

As you can see, I made a few little alterations to the original design. First, I removed the "too bright" blue square that was on the right of the star in my version of step #2. I just couldn't stop seeing that square in the overall layout, so it had to go!


Then I put the 'scrap love' fusible applique section at the top. The idea just came to my mind when I saw the final layout. When I quilt this little wallhanging, I will stitch around the edges of the shapes to fasten them more securely.

I used up leftover HST's to make most of the flying geese blocks. And I added an extra border of little squares all the way around the whole thing because I had so many bits leftover.
I will try to finish this in time for the quilt parade on Dec. 15th.

Precious, Kathy. Mine is still at stage 2. I'm still saying it. I like how you modified it to suit you.

I love your design change to this little piece. I am thinking of making mine a little 'welcome' hanger

Clever little addition to the top. I like the added row of blocks, too (having done that with mine as well).
Are you using regular batting, or flannel?

I love the colours you have in your squares - rich and warm but not too heavy or staid looking - lovely.

Cute, Kathy! Mine is still in the cut squares stage, LOL!! It is a busy time for me, but I love the Tucker idea and will be making one soon. I have the perfect spot for it.

Very cute! I really like that border with the flying geese and it's nicely complemented by the top applique border.

Robin said...

Kathy, I think I first heard about this little sew a long here on your blog. I too have made a little " Tucker" though I have modified the design to make it work for me. If you would like to see it I have made a post showing it here. Glad to have joined in on the fun. Thanks for sharing. This is the second thing I have made using Pam's patterns. Love them both : )
