Design Wall Monday Jan 30 2017

Design Wall Monday is here again! It may not look like it, but I got a lot done on the Butterfly Blossoms Quilt this week. Especially considering I usually only have an hour or two a day to work on it after I put Henry to bed for the night.

The center of the top is complete! Although now that I’m seeing this picture, I can see I forgot to trim the tail on one of the sashes, lol. I sewed up all of the blocks, cut the sashing and cornerstones and sewed them on. I love the cornerstones. The example quilt was much more purpley than mine is turning out to be, which I was a little disappointed with, but the cornerstones help bring out more of the purples. Once I add the border I think it will look purple enough to me. The directions I’m following are from a video and it wasn’t too clear how wide the borders should be cut, so once I figure that out I will be able to cut those and finish the quilt top.

The top is supposed to finish 56″x66″, a little bigger than I’d like to quilt on my little machine but I’ll get it done somehow!!

I’m linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times.

  1. This is super cute. I love the block you are making. The purple cornerstones do bring your eye to the purple. Whatever you add around it can also emphasize the purple.

    • I am using the same fabric for the border as I used for the cornerstones so yes, I think it will definitely emphasize the purple! Thanks for stopping by.
