On the Design Wall

This UFO is currently up on my design wall.  I am determined to finish it!  I am loving the warm water feel of the colors.  I am dreaming of a tropical paradise!  I only need 5 more blocks, hopefully I can have those done by the end of this week.  I will need to have some V.I.P.'s sign the blocks before I piece the top.  After a border, I am hoping to have a generous twin.  I think that I will probably go with a plain white backing, only piecing in a few scraps.  White thread to quilt, working only on the white of the top with a walking foot.  I think that it will quilt up quickly.  I hope.

Here are the in progress blocks that I am piecing.  I hope I have enough, the fabric is no longer available, of course.

Hope you all are keeping warm and cozy.  It is freezing here!
Funny how things work, Rachel at p.s.i quilt did a siggy tutorial today!  It is super easy, and super fun to make these blocks.  It requires 16 siggy blocks to make a 12" square finished block!  Happy quilting!


  1. Thought we'd moved to the Arctic! Weather Bug won't even register the temp!

    I love the quilt top! And the colors and the precise.

    I'll call you later!
    Happy New Year!

  2. I love how graphic it pretty! Do you have a pattern?

  3. Wow, the white is very striking. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  4. Beautiful colors!!!

  5. You are one of the reasons I joined Rachel's siggy swap. I love how your blocks turned out.


I love to hear your thoughts, and I try to respond. Thanks for sharing your time and encouragement!
