Design Wall Monday-2/7

Hi All! I have almost finished my Meet Me at the Manor series quilt from Quiltmaker. I have the whole top together, but I think I want to add a yellow print outer border. I don't like ending a quilt with all those small pieces on the outside. But anyway, after all that piecing, the final result is pretty! I am happy with my color choices!

My current (well, one of them!) is the Kiss in the Corner by Bonnie Hunter. The pattern cn be found on her blog-Quiltville. This one is turning out cute. I had a whole bunch of HST's left over from another project-all done in batiks. The constant fabric is not a batik, but is very batiky looking from far away. I am up to sewing on the 1.5" squares in the sashing strip corners. There is a ton of sewing with this quilt-it is all done in 2" and 1.5" pieces! This is really typical of Bonnie H quilts! Also typical is how much fun they are to put together! I am happy to use up some of these 1.5" squares. I have lots of them!

This is the sweet little print I am using for the corner stones and setting triangles. I was starting to think this was becoming too monochromatic, but in the photo, you begin to see the pattern emerging.

That's some of my current projects. See what others are working on at Patchwork Times!

God Bless!
