Design Wall Monday July 18

I'm up and moving early this morning, for me at least. Summer is well and truly here, and it was hot and muggy sleeping last night, so I finally gave up and got up, figuring it would be fun to get an early start to the day and see how much I can get accomplished.
We got home from our long weekend camping trip yesterday, at about 4 pm. So there was plenty of time to be able to get my Bear Tracks quilt finished. WOOHOO!!!! And I love it in person every bit as much as I did when looking at the photo on the pattern. The colours in the picture are bang on, as far as how it actually looks. This one is definitely going to live right here. This particular quilt pattern is from a company called Glad Creations and I really like their stuff. There is another pattern from them, called Auntie's Choice that I have purchased and want to do someday. But not for a while yet. Today, I'm going to browse design wall's at Judy's Patchwork Times Then I'm going to see if I can get the beginnings, at least, of some sort of quilting design figured out for this quilt. Then I want to at least get started doing a little bit of work on my July UFO. And best of all, I'm going to start a new quilt, more details to follow.

  2. Oh my! I love everything about this quilt. I'm going to search out Glad Creations. I don't need another 'want to do' but this is impossible to resist.

  4. That is just stunning and I love it! Great job, enjoy getting back home and unpacking. Keep cool it is blistering hot here too, I am so glad we invested in central air a few years ago or I would be nonfuncitonal.

  5. Love, love, love it!!! I have a stack of bear paws blocks from a swap that are just waiting for a design idea. I think I just found it. And all those nine patches would be perfect leaders and enders. Hope you don't mind but there is going to be another one of those quilts made right here in CT - mine will be with homespuns.

  7. As everyone has already said, that quilt is stunning! I've enjoyed watching it "grow" - and now I'll wait to see how you choose to quilt it.
    I've not heard of Glad Creations before, and I'm not sure that I want to thank you for the link - I see 3 or 4 (or a dozen!) patterns I'd love to try: Bear Chase, Birds in the Air, Cabin in the Stars, Dazzling Stars.... you get the picture! Buying them isn't the problem - finding the time to make them is!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
