Design Wall Monday
I am visiting my quilting friend Deanna and in between playing in the creek, and walking in the woods, lots of quilting progress has been made. The awesome weather made it hard to stay indoors but I have been determined to get sewing Kevin's Simply Sensational Summer Scrap quilt.
The big reveal on August 22 was a medallion style layout and here is the beginning of my version. This was easy sewing of 4 patch blocks and an extra row on the side and the bottom.
The next step was the addition of the light 4 patch blocks all around with dark 4 patches the corners. It was a little bit wavy on the sides at this point, but I was hoping it would be okay. I decided those light green blocks could stay in those light block... it gave it a bit of sparkle.
Next was the construction of 4 large triangle pieces to add to the sides. It was a little tricky, and I was nervous about adding them to the growing quilt above. But I was motivated to keep sewing by the promise of a lovely place for a photo op. And so I persevered and used a ton of pins, and it turned out okay.
I got the sides added to the quilt before the sun went down, and then Deanna and I went on an ATV trip to the forest. So fun! Then we walked for a long time to find this remote lake. This is how the quilt looks today. I love it so far! The next step is to trim off those triangle edges and add several more borders. But for now, I'm just going to enjoy how it looks today!

That is a great quilt and I love how that center block looks set on point.
What a gorgeous setting for your quilt photo. I love your multicolored scrappy version of this quilt. The green does make the light areas sparkle! Beautiful.
Your quilt is looking so nice and what a lovely place to take the photo! Happy Stitching!
I love all the color in your quilt! It's going to be a pretty one. I have my medallion done, but I'm nervous about those corner pieces. I'll probably work on those today.
Ah! A super scrappy version. LOVE it!!! Thanks for being the one to lead the way, as that is SEW what I wanted to do (but I was afraid to try it.)
I love your multicolor version so much! So fun and vibrant. Super photo shoot, too :)
That is a lot of quality time with needle and thread! Gorgeous staging in the woods. Congrats on getting it done!
Your quilt looks great, and how wonderful that the quilt got a chance for a photo op before it is completed.
Wonderful quilt and and what a beautiful location for a photo shoot.
Looks like you've had a great week of relaxation and hanging out with friends. Love your version of the Sensational Scrap Quilt! All those brights with the white contrast work so well and look so pretty!
