Design Wall Monday

Alison over at Little Bunny Quilts posted TWO Bonnie Hunter pattern quilts that she finished this month. TWO! DO you know how many little pieces that is to cut and sew together?!? 
A billion, plus or minus a trillion!!
You can see her Double Delight here and Good Fortune here

Thank you Alison for the inspiration to get going on my quilts. 

Double Delight is one of my all time favourite quilts. It has been finished for 5 years but it needs a corner repaired. The corner was eaten in 2014 by my Granddog Max who really loves quilts... to snuggle in and to eat! I can't believe it's been 5 years and I haven't fixed it yet!
Double Delight is a still a free pattern on the Quiltville website. Bonnie shares so many free things with the world that I want to support her in any way I can. When I heard she had out a quilt themed jigsaw puzzle I was on the look out for one. I finally found it at Cherished Pieces in Tillsonburg. It combines 3 things I enjoy to do ... see photos of quilts, do jigsaw puzzles, and support Quiltville!

My version of Good Fortune needs more blocks to be made. I haven't really worked on it since winter quilt retreat.
I got out the parts bin and started to calculate how many blocks were already made, how many I wanted, and how many parts still needed to be cut and sewn.

First I focused on the gold and red blocks. I really enjoyed making the gold strips on phone book paper and finished up all the red and gold blocks.

Here are the  finished blocks on the design wall. I decided on a 5 x 7 block layout, so it still needs 5 more of the alternate blocks for the centre of the quilt. And then there are 4 borders to sew and attach. Lots still to do on this project!

Linking up with the Design Wall Monday party at Small Quilts.

Teeny tiny pieces! Double Delight is the 1st Quiltville Mystery I tried. Nice to see your Good Fortune getting some play time. I also ordered the Puzzle. Should be here today.

I like your color choices for Good Fortune. I haven't done the last few BH mysteries because I didn't like the colors and have a hard time choosing a different color scheme when you don't know what the design will wind up being.

Thank you for sharing about my quilts, I feel so honored! I had never seen your Double Delight before (I don't think?) but it is adorable and I hope you can figure out how to fix it without too many tears. I have had two different quilts that I have had to repair because of my bunnies eating holes in them and have another quilt that needs a new binding on it for that reason as well.

Your double delight is... really delightful! Just terrific. I have a quilt to repair too for the exact same reason (actually, my daughter says she will repair it....) but gotta love her golden retriever!

I love the colors that you used in Good Fortune!
