Design Wall Monday, 1/24

Well, this is going to look more like design floor. I got some quilting done this weekend!

Saturday, I got the poinsettia table runner loaded and quilted. I have enough of the red stripe to be used as the binding, too.

Ivory/cream colored thread on top and red Bottom Line in the bobbin quilted with loops.

I got a quilt loaded after I finished the table runner. The quilt is #6 in the UFO Challenge through Judy L.'s blog and was pulled for January. I quilted this one with a Lava thread in the top and a pink Bottom Line in the bobbin. The quilt is Sibling Revelry that Regina made for me last year.

Oh, this is an awful picture, but the pattern of the quilting shows up well. The pattern is Party Hearts from Golden Threads that was in a Sweet & Simple pack that I got.

And here is the backing that she sent me to use. It's great!!

And I was lucky enough to have a quilting buddy while I was working! Maisy made herself a little bed out of the extra dog blankets that I leave on the floor in the basement.

Although I think all she wanted was the snack that I was eating between rows!

The poinsettia table runner is absolutely lovely! You definitely did have a great quilting weekend. Beginning Quilting can be challenging at first but with help from friends, I'm sure it's a whole lot of fun! By the way, your dog Maisy is so cute!
