Design Wall Monday Sept 19

I have a couple of things up on my wall right now. Most of it is components for Roll roll cotton boll. The black and purple half square triangles on the right side are parts of the churn dash squares for RRCB. ANd under those are the 5 crumb blocks. But, I'm stalled. I want to start something new. But I'm not sure just what. I've been watching different quilts in the 36 patch quilt along for the last while, and have totally fallen in love with Kathy's I really, really want to do one of these. And then there is a collection of fall themed fabrics, for one of the quilts out of Judy's book Weekend Quilts, that I want to do. ANd then there is Swoon I've seen all kinds of different versions of it, and it is loudly calling my name. I have some novelty fabrics that I've been looking to do something with, a lot of them leftover from making Matt and Becca's Wedding quilt.  Here's a pic of some of them, paired up with some
coordinates. The more I look at them, the more I think this might be it. There are others that are a bit more girly and pastels, as well, but I'm not sure if they will work with what I've got so far. To see other design walls, hop on over to Judy's patchwork times where there is lots and lots to see, and cause temptation to quilters wanting ideas and inspiration for new projects, even when not needing ideas and inspiration for new projects. (giggle)


  1. You are so cute! That "Swoon" fabric is some pretty heady stuff. Might make a nice baby girl quilt! Love your fattening fabrics, too! LOL! :)

  2. So many choices, so little time. Have fun with which ever you pick.

  3. Cathy, your wall looks great. I have seen that Roll Roll... quilt a few times now and I am intrigued by the alternate blocks (the string ones). It is SUCH an interesting way to achieve some pretty and subtle variations in coloring. So nice! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Oh keep rolling on your cotton ball. Before you know it, Bonnie will have a new mystery. I just love them. This year will be my third mystery.

  5. You are making wonderful progress on your RRCB quilt. There are so many wonderful patterns and designs for quilts that I find it a little overwhelming at times. I want to make so many of them!


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.
