Design Wall Monday

The red, yellow, black&white Dresden fan/plate quilt is still on my design wall. I am still hand sewing the blades to the background.
But on my computer is the design for a saint's quilt. It will be made of 16 inch blocks 18 of them. 14 will be star blocks with the scores of the 14 games in the centers and 4 will make up a center medallion star to showcase that they are the world champions of American football. I did it in EQ7 but still don't know how to add text or my fabrics. I am still learning! I will make the center medallion first ...it will be 32 inches square. This way I can work on 2 quilts at the same time...hand sewing while the Babylock embroiders the words. We shall see if I am successful.
Well, lator gators. I am off to start making 16 1/2 inch flying geese. Have a blessed week.

  1. I'm thinking about getting the EQ7. How long did it take you to get to where you are now with it? Hope you figure out soon how to add your colors. Shirley in Oklahoma

  2. I would be lost without EQ7. I design more quilts than I can possibly make even if I live to 120. Love the quilts. I think you were working on the dresden plate on the shop hop bus trip.

  3. Shirley, it did not take long and I do have color on the computer. I just didn't take time to scan fabrics into place. I just used what they had available. Also the picture has no color because my printer is running out of ink. Yes, Sharie, I was working on it on the bus trip.

  4. LOL. I read you were making a saint's quilt and wondered what that was. I thought, oh, she must be really religious......and here I am born and raised in New Orleans and never once thought it!

  5. As a huge football fan, I love to see what people do to honor their favorite teams. Probably won't be making anything for my poor Cleveland Browns anytime soon - I'd celebrate a winning season! But that does make me think - aren't there 16 games in the regular season, or did you just choose to skip two of the scores?
