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!
Blessings,
KT
EDIT:
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 lattice...sew precise.

    I'll call you later!
    Happy New Year!
