Design Wall

I have the borders on Carol's quilt from last Monday. Now, I have to get a few customer quilts finished before I can quilt it.

I started working on a quilt for the new grandbaby. I bought a really cute kit from Fresh Picked Fabrics when we first found out about the new baby. Can I find the pattern now that I'm going to work on it? No. I can find the fabric, but not the pattern.

So, I boot up EQ7 and see what I can come up with. I think my design is way too involved. I'm pretty sure that when Gina Halladay designed the quilt it was much simpler.

I don't care for the way it's turning out. It's too much of a jumble, but I've committed myself to this design. There are some cute cars and buildings to applique on top of the blocks. I'm hoping that they can save this.

Visit Patchwork Times to link up with other design walls. There will be some great inspiration over there.


  1. I love the fabrics and think the design is fine, but I don't have the one you can't find to compare it to ;)
    I'm looking at the picture again and I really like it.

  2. I like it, I think the colors are very soothing!

  3. What I like about your pattern is that it is busy without being messy. And perfect for a little boy, something he can grow up with.
