Design Wall Quilt Basting

 There hasn't been a lot of sewing done here this week, but I have done some quilt basting using 505 Basting Spray on my design wall.  This quilt is called Nine Patch and Hourglass from the book Quick and Easy Scrap Quilts by Leisure Arts. 

 

This fall tree is from several years ago.  The idea for this quilt came from an old  watercolor quilt book.

 

This is a two color applique' wall hanging from Pacific Rim Quilt Company called Sunflower Fields.  These quilts are really a lot of fun to applique'.



I drafted the pattern for this quilt from the HGTV show Sarah's House.  This is taken from the antique quilt that hung on the wall of her guest room at her summer house. 



I made this table runner to show different ways to use churn dash blocks. 



Be sure to visit Judy at www.patchworktimes.com to see what is on others design walls.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

Your cup runneth over with interesting projects. No idle hands in your home. I see that I'm not the only one to see an idea on TV and then run with it. I especially enjoy the challenge of figuring out the pattern.
I had to look closely to see the hourglass blocks. They're so subtle. Cool!

I love the trees and flowers. It's beautiful.
Blgodon Bargello quilts are in the description? I need it!

I have had that Ninepatch and Hourglass bookmarked for many years. Yours is lovely.

Hi, LuAnn. I love your 9 patch but couldn't figure out where the "hourglass" came in until I looked more closely. How darling....

I'm going to have to try the design wall basting now that I no longer have a Gammill at my beck and call. I have a few tops that will do just fine with straight line quilting if I can just get them basted (post holidays and post Orca Bay with Bonnie Hunter). How big are your 9p in this incredible quilt?

All your projects are so lovely and different, but I especially love the watercolor tree. You DO get things done!

You have some beautiful quilt tops there! Will you be hand or machine-quilting them? I really love both the 9-Patches.

Dear LuAnn,
it's a wonderful 9-Patch-Quilt. It seems you want to have springtime. The applications are great.
Thanks for your email, I'll answer soon.
Have a nice day and take care

WOW! This is quite an amazing array of pretty things! I love that 9 patch with the appliqued border and the tree especially,although all the projects are really lovely.

Eden said...

love the nine patch at the top! I am thinking of doing that pattern in scraps for a teacher at school that is retiring at the end of the year. I think the applique border on yours really sets it off!

So many wonderful quilts--they have inspired me. I love them all, but a have a special place in my heart for Churn Dash blocks! What a great table runner!

Ellen said...

What a lovely showing of your projects. Now that they are all basted it should be a snap to get them all quilted!

Too funny! Loved your first quilt so I did a quick google search for the book. Was very excited when I saw it for $2.95 on Amazon, just to realize that I own the book!! Made my day. Time to pull out my scraps and make it. Love the applique border!

Sue Daurio said...

I always love nine patch quilts and those with applique are even more fun. Great things going on!

I wish I had thought of the design wall basting idea yesterday. I struggled with back pain spray basting a quilt on the floor. My husband helped me but still I was struggling. I remember reading about the wall basting in the past.

Jeanne said...

Your design is working overtime! They are all great projects and so close to being done.

Thanks for the great quilt show! I love the 9Patch w/applique - it's just lovely. Spray basting and standing up sure beat crawling around on the floor. I love 'wall basting'... let gravity help us, ya?!
Hugs,
