Design Wall Monday

I thought I would never get to my blog today...I think I'm getting a cold...I feel like I'm moving in slow motion. I feel amazingly better now that I'm in my sewing room (I really should be tackling chores).

I'm halfway through sewing rows together on my Purple Mountains Majesty quilt.


Then it will be time to start the borders. I'm going with my own design...worked out on EQ7.


In the mail today I got the last of the fabric I need to start the alternating blocks of the 2011 BOM from Pieceful Kwilter. I ordered the opal from Batik Plus...they carry older lines of Hoffman prints. I love ordering from them...they send a gift...a fat quarter. Love the one they sent me.


I wanted to share a mock-up print of the block I made with EQ7 (on the right). It really helps to see the block in actual size with the fabrics I am using.


I hope I find time to see what everyone else is posting about their Design Walls at Judy's. Her latest quilt is so pretty!

I've ordered from batiks plus before, and really liked their service, including the free fat quarter. And your Mountain Majesties quilt is looking gorgeous. How are you coming on your Dresdens?
