Design Wall (Floor) Monday February 28, 2011


I've still got the old flower basket quilt on my floor. It's basted and I've started tying it in places. It is quilted with such a thick thread that I decided to use embroidery floss to tie it. I found a color that matches, but it looks a little too new so I aged with a little tea.

Also on the floor is the beginning of a Depression Block Quilt. I've been cutting triangles every time I have a small bit of fabric and I've finally got them all cut. 544 dark triangles in various colors, and 544 light triangles in various colors. I've got 84 triangles put together into squares. Only 1004 to go.

The Depression Block is anything but depressing! Love all the scrappy goodness. Congrats on getting the old basket blocks to tying stage.

I believe the quilt will be beautiful. I wish I could/would quilt. I could use some of my stash instead of the little applique that I do.

Now that is a lot of triangle to cut and piece! Beautiful colors.

Love this block! I'm just finishing a 16 patch scrap quilt and always like to have a scrappy one going. Maybe this will be my next one! Thanks for the inspiration! Toni
