Design Wall Monday

This is how the design wall looks at the beginning of April.

I have been working on the jelly bean quilt. I fixed the green block at the top of the quilt that eagle eye Lisa noticed when I posted the quilt last week. It needed a 90 degree rotation to get the jelly beans to line up, so I unsewed it, and put it back together - correctly this time. Then I added a narrow white border and started on the next jelly bean border with the fabric from my friend Gail. I'm not sold on this idea yet, so I'll keep playing with it.

At the top of the design wall are some Ohio Star variations for my blue April placemat. 

Linking up to Small Quilts


  1. I like the border on your quilt. It's going to be a fun quilt. Hugs

  2. I like what you have going on with the border. It’s going to be a really cute quilt.


  3. This is such a sweet quilt, Kathy. Happy Quilting.

  4. I too like the border,maybe just add a single square in the middle on each side to look like the top and bottom. The large white open space looks unfinished. Just an idea.

  5. Hey Kathy: Why don't you put a white border around that jelly bean border idea which will make those jelly bean pieces float? That will make it look modern :-). Try the same width as the jelly bean strips and bits and try a wider one and see if the quilt will speak to you :-).

  6. I really like where your border is going on this one. Keep playing! It is going to be fun.
