Design wall

So, I appear to be incapable of taking a decent, in-focus picture lately.

I’m not sure if it’s me, or if it’s my camera.  Maybe both.

Currently on my filthy design wall are 10 completed Dresden Plate blocks — 1 by machine, 9 by hand.  Only 27 more to go by hand, 3 by machine.

I’ve been working on this quilt on my longarm:

I think it’s just adorable.  So adorable that I went and bought red and green solids to either recreate this quilt or maybe use the color scheme as an inspiration for something else.

It also appears that I’m incapable of cleaning up and staging my photos.  Good grief.  (For the record, that’s a tape measure and the box for my new sneakers sitting ther on the floor.  And a QOV on the cutting table that’s been ready to mail for, like, 2 weeks.

I actually turned ON my sewing machine yesterday and USED it.  I finished the piecing and did the applique work on a baby quilt that I started awhile back.  No pictures yet, because I’m going to stick it on the frame tomorrow and quilt it, I figured I’d wait until it was actually done before sharing.

I *thought* the quilt on the frame was done, but when I took it off tonight and flipped it over, I discovered an unquilted blocks.  Dadgumit.

No pictures of the quilting yet ((a) it’s too dark for decent pictures and (b) I’m waiting until I share it with it’s owner and (c) I’ve challenged the quilters at MQR to come up with THEIR design ideas, and I’m still waiting for more people to participate in that adventure).

It’s cute, though.  At least, I think it is.  Mark came in when I was working on it and I said to him “Isn’t this just the cutest quilt?”

“If you say it is.”

He has no taste.

    Love the polka dots behind the Dresden Plates! And I think the circle quilt is adorable…I will be very interested to see what you decided to quilt.

      Oh, SNAP, Adam. You are pushing your luck!! LOL

      I should revise my original statement.

      He CLEARLY has good taste in SOME areas, such as his choice in a wife, but NO taste in other areas, like quilts.

        I like how that’s the only thing in the whole entry I felt needed comment on. However I really like the black background for the dresden plates

    I love this quilt. Alas, I went to the challenge page too late to send in my design. Rats.
    I love lines with circles so I would have done linework in the red; spirial inside the circles
    and stipple the background of the circles. I can’t wait to see how you quilt it. Photo please.
