Yay! Yay! Double Yay! I have a design wall and I have something on it!
Bears in the Farmhouse! This is the second of these quilts and I had wanted them to be pretty much exactly alike. I have high hopes of some day having a farmhouse — something that looks like an old farmhouse just like my grandma had, but it’s actually a new farmhouse, with a 6 burner gas stove and an air conditioner that works! 🙂 And I want the headboards on two twin beds to be old whitewashed wooden gates and I want the walls to be yellow with lots of white trim. And I wants Bears in the Farmhouse to be the quilts on those two beds.
When I opened the box for this UFO, it had only the blocks. I was so lucky to be able to find the red check for the border and the red for the binding – the same reds I used in the first quilt. I’ve cut the sashing strips and squares, I’ve pieced together the straight borders and made the binding (see them stacked neatly on the ironing shelf?) and all I have left to do is make the half square triangles for the pieced border and sew everything together.
Did you think I’d ever have a design wall again? I was beginning to wonder! Now . . please show us what’s on your design wall!
