On the design wall

On the design wall is a quilt destined for my Mother in Law.

Hourglass blocks and a couple of charm packs of Chrysalis, which we chose together, with her room in mind.

I am planning on a border of grey to highlight the white in the top, then a pieced border.  I may add a further white border, but we shall see.

 I really love this layout - this is the third I have made.  I would love to try this in some pastel colours with a softer grey.

I am going to use it as a practice quilt for when my Gammill Longarm arrives next month.  I want to piece a couple of more tops between now and then. 

I also have to do some serious furniture moving/culling too.

The excitement is building around here!!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.


  1. very nice. I really like the fabrics you selected for the large squares. Will be looking forward to seeing what borders you add.

  2. I love the black and white intermingling with the colored fabrics! It makes for a really striking pattern ;)

  3. You are going to have a blast with the long arm!

  4. Really lovely.

  5. I love how the colours pop against the light/dark hourglass
