Design Wall Monday- March 11,2013

"Square Peg in a Round Hole"
This is what the Michelle's D9P from the Y2K 3" Squares Swap looked like when Lynn "found" it last Fall when she was looking for her Jars to do some canning.   Very Scrappy, the only constant was the Orange center square.  We show it with a dime on it so you can see how tiny it is. About an inch finished!
This quilt began when we were still quilting in the basement around 2005.  Michelle told her mom that she got this one and last September it was put a little higher on the UFO list.  It needed borders and to be quilted.  That is just what happened this past week.  Michelle came to visit and selected the fabrics she liked for borders and on Tuesday, those borders were attached.  Not quite what her Mom would have chosen, but Thread and Bolts has a couple less skinny bolts of fabric in the shop now.  Mary C chose a bright Yellow Backing fabric and loaded on the frame.  When Michelle came to visit on Wednesday she said Yellow was her favorite color and it was perfect.  Lynn quilted Square Doodles on this quilt. There is nothing better than making a quilt for family! How do you like the name of this quilt?

  1. Wow, very colorful with the orange squares. That took a lot of nine patches! The name is perfect.
