Design Wall Monday-July 12

Good Monday AM!!!
I finished my Asterisks quilt top yesterday and started another called Valiant Eagle. This one is from Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting-June/July 2010 issue-the latest issue. I just love the eagle in the center! It has a stripe border above and below the eagle and then a border of stars around all that. I only got the center part done last night. I think this one is going to Alycia in Colorado for her QOV project, although I sure would like to look into getting one started here in Spokane. We have Fairchild AFB just down the road from us.

Here is my finished Asterisks quilt top. It was fun to make. I could put two or four blocks together as time allowed during my work week. Yesterday, I put the top all together. I still might make some for block lotto, we'll see. I made 42 of the blocks, so was ready to be done with them after this weekend!

This is a short and sweet post! Nothing new on the work front-besides it being an extra crazy week! Some of the patients who are confused as a rule seems even more confused this past week. I'm not sure why. Summer weather?

God bless!

We have a Quilts of Love show every year where quilts donated to charites are given out after the show. There was one that was 4 eagles in red on cheddar. It was gorgeous. Just gorgeous!
Of course it was a QOV quilt.

Mary, the asterisk quilt turned out wonderfully. You have just the right combination of plain and printed fabric that really make the quilt lively. Thank you for sharing!
