Design Wall Monday

I’m continuing to work on my quilt using large scale floral fabrics. It is now about 2/3 of the way done. I posted a picture of this to Susan’s Facebook page and she asked me if it had a name and said that she thought it looked like flower boxes. Up until then it didn’t have a name. Now it does: Flower Boxes.



The next picture of it will have to be done after it is finished. Our couch and my sewing table block the bottom of my design wall from the camera. When the centre of the quilt is finished it will measure about 70x70. It’s going to need at least one border in order to tame all the outer bias edges. My inclination at the moment is to use the solid light blue. But that will depend on if I have enough of it left.
I’m not sure yet whether I’m going to stay indoors and sew or go outside and enjoy the glorious summer weather. Right now, summer is edging out the staying inside. I just might wind a hank of yarn that came in the mail today and then go outside and knit. Yep, that’s it, decision made. I’m linking up to Design Wall Monday.

  2. Flower Box is coming along so well. Unfortunately, I don't particularly care to be outside all that much. Although I should be enjoying the outdoors these days because give us a few weeks and the heat and humidity will totally do me in! Enjoy your knitting.

  3. Very pretty. I seldom buy florals but admire the colors in them always when I pet bolts in the shops!

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.
