Design Wall Monday - 7/16/12

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 - ;))

Took a look at the hearts -

That I have made so far -

For my Memory Quilt -

All bagged up -

Don’t remember why -

I need a plan for the ones that I have made already -

But I also need to allow for the ones -

Like the 5 Black/White/Red ones -

And Jelly Beans -

That are “in progress” - ;))

And the JRRQ ones that I haven’t made yet -

And - I want to keep them in order -

But - I’m not sure what that will look like -

Color-wise - ;))

So far -

I have 57 - including Wolf Song -

And - they ARE in order -

Don’t remember doing that -

Seems like I thought about this before, huh? ;))

And it seems that if I want to keep adding to it -

That the colors are just going to have to fall where they may -

I can’t wait until I have ALL of the hearts made before I start -

“Cuz that just ain’t gonna happen - ;))

Hopefully I will be adding hearts to this quilt -

For a very loooooooooooong time -

So -

I think that I'll just start in the center -

And work my way out to the edges -

But -

Should I go in rows -

And make a square -

Or go in a circle -

Or go in a spiral -

Or what?

Maybe a “quilt-as-you-go” kind of thing -

But for sure -

I think that this needs to marinate in my brain -

Just a little bit more -

So - if you guys have any suggestions -

I’m listening - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I thought of one more last night -
Start in the top left corner -
And add them like a Quarter Log Cabin block -
That would work!! ;))


  1. Hummmm... Let me suggest you do what I do.
    The first plan you think of... do it! Start slapping them on a design wall until they are all up there in just the right order and you're ready to sew.
    And then.....
    Promptly change your mind!! And go in a different direction.
    Works for me every time. lol

  2. I see a border of hearts and center of something something. all scrappy and playing nice together. hmmmm..... can I draw a decent heart for a template? see what you made me do? LOL


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 - ;))
