design wall monday... 5-31-2010



I cut this panel apart yesterday and it took me quite a while to read and re-read the story to make sure it was in the right order. The panel was originally printed for a book and I will make a quilt for charity.. I need to find a sashing fabric and border in the stash and then I found a print with the three pigs for backing... It will make a smaller size quilt, but hopefully it will keep some child entertained..

Want to see more Wall Design Monday? See Judy's blog.

I also got the back pieced for a commission quilt and will hopefully get that the quilter this week.

On the way back from retreat last weekend we stopped at a quilt shop and they had a wonderful redwork quilt on display (they were using it to advertise their Redwork Club). Of course no pattern as it was in a magazine a zillion years ago. THEN. Bev said she had made the quilt AND might still have the magazine.. She did!! And now I have started a new redwork quilt. Like I needed another project..

I'm sure that story quilt will be a big hit with the child who is lucky enough to get it. How terrific to find 3 Little Pigs fabric for the backing!!!

I've got a panel print for Christmas that I want to do, but it always gets pushed to the back burner! Are you teasing us about the "Red Work"? Come on now share a picture!!!

May have asked you this before (Old age thing you know, I can't remember) but hubby was born in MT. Grove Mo. Are you anywhere close?

Happy Memorial Day to All

What a great way to share a story with a little one. You can read the story together and then the little one can sleep under the story. What a great memory maker.

Have a super great day.

I just love kid quilts made from panels that are supposed to be made into books. Makes them interesting and quick!

Great quilt panel and I loved that story as a child. Please post a completed picture for us before you donate to charity.
