Design Wall Monday - 9/15/14


DESIGN WALL MONDAY -
Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))
===


I'm still plugging away with EASY STREET DETOUR -

My version of Easy Street - HERE - ;))

I finished up the corner sections -



And then played with the side-setting triangles - ;))


I found two more chocolate squares -
That had been CUT somehow -
And had to replace them -



Thank goodness for EXTRAS - ;))


Then when I had finished these -


I took a break -
Shifted gears -
And quilted (in the ditch) an I Spy panel print quilt -
-(c)DreamSpinners (R) for V.I.P., a division of Cranston Print Works Company -
For a friend's Granddaughter -
And added the binding to the back first - ;))


I like to quilt the quilt -
Run a basting line close to the edge on the front -
Add the binding to the back -
Using the basting line as my placement guide -
THEN trim the whole thing -
Even with the binding -
From the back - ;))


When I get to where the binding pieces join -
I just flip them out of the way -
And continue trimming - ;))


Flip it to the front -
And the corners miter nicely - ;))


When I get to where the binding pieces join -
I trim them to fit inside one another -
Unfold them -


Fold them back on themselves -
To "nest" them -


And then fold them over to the front -


And stitch it all down with a decorative stitch -
From the front - ;))


It doesn't look too bad from the back -
And I don't have to worry about not "catching" the back -
Because it's already sewn down - ;))


All done -
Washed and crinkly - ;))


The back is pieced with some novelty prints -
That I had on hand -


Some animals -



Some environmental stuff -


Some skates and mittens -
Some ELVIS - ;))


And some paper dolls - ;))


LOTS of FUN stuff to SPY -
For a sweet little girl -
From her Grandma's friend - ;))




Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

  1. I do love "I Spy" quilts for kids and yours is super front and back.

    1. Thanks, Julie - I cheated a bit because it was a "pre-printed" panel - but it turned out REALLY cute - and I think that she'll have fun playing with it - ;))

    1. Thanks, Linda - and yeah - it was a very nice break - you can't get much less "involved" than a pre-printed panel that doesn't even need borders - haha - ;))

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
