Design Wall Monday

I am going to try to remember to add this post to the Design Wall Monday post at Patchwork Times in the am. I am posting this on Sunday.
Here is our cat Sadie, one of my Quilt Inspectors. She approves of the Kool Kaleidoscope Baby quilt-I posted about it last week.

Now here are some photos of the blocks I have been working on since last spring for the Garden Party quilt from Quiltin Tizzy. There is one more post to go! Setting directions I'll bet! This has been a fun quilt, and I am still working on the last 6 blocks as I am hand appliqueing them. I spent the last few days prepping the last blocks and I think I will be bringing them along on our vacation in September....I'm pretty sure I won't be all done with them by then!

And here is what is actually ON my design wall! This is a mystery quilt from McCalls Quilting Magazine. It only had 3 parts to it, so it was fairly quick. There were only 4different fabrics in the original quilts. That is so TOO FEW FABRICS for me, but it was fun to do something I don't normally do. I am a "the more the merrier" and scrappy gal! Even then, I ended up using 3 creamy yellows and 2 bright pinks...SOOO, I still did it MY WAY! LOL!

Be sure to stop by Judy's Patchwork Times to see more design walls on Monday!

God bless

Hi Mary, I have saved all the blocks for the Garden quilt but not started it. Yours looks great. Tried to email you from my blog but would not work. Thanks for your nice comment about Cherry Trees.

I love that mystery quilt. I think that it is hard to only use 3-4 fabrics too. I really think the blocks are adorable and it is going to be a very pretty quilt.
