Design Wall Monday August 9

My design wall is the same as it was a couple of days ago, showing "Double Duty" by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. It's almost done. I had been wondering whether to change out the tan setting triangles for a lighter fabric, which is my inclination. But, when I asked my husband's opinion, he like the tan, says it frames it better than the lighter fabric would. Since this will probably end up as his quilt, I'll leave it the way it is. I've put working on it on hold for a little while, since I'm participating in a sew along hosted by  Teaquilts She posted a picture of this quilt, and, of course, I fell in love, and had to do it. When she proposed a sew along, I ordered the book, and jumped at the chance to work on this quilt. I've always wanted to do a pineapple quilt. Go on over to Judy's to see more design walls.


  1. I think whatever you decide, it will look fabulous! I can't wait to see. And sometimes we need to go with what our DHs think, just because.

  2. I totally can see how you can fall in love with this design! Can't wait to see it done!

  3. I really like this quilt
    glen: i understand why it grabbed you!

  4. Wow, what a beauty! I would go with DH's vote as well. Probably depends on the quilting you are going to do in the corners. Happy sewing!
    And goo

  5. And good luck for teaquilts pineapple - sorry, my comment got cut off ...

  6. What a great looking quilt!
    I am trying to resist that pineapple sew-a-long...it's a beauty but I am not starting another new quilt (I hope I can stick to that). Don't have too much fun or I might have to join in!!


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.
