Design Wall Monday

This is the third Christmas quilt I am working ever so slowly on. It started with a churn dash block swap in 1999/2000. You sent off the center square to fellow quilters, they made the block in their choice of colors and returned it to you, and you did the same for them. The 20 blocks sat for quite a while waiting for some inspiration. At some point, say 2008 maybe? I earmarked a Christmas quilt in a magazine that was designed by Robin Pandolph. In fall of 2009, I was looking through my magazine clippings for ideas for a different project and made a connection between the two! It seems like it should have come to me alot faster than that. Anyway, I added dark green,gold, and cream from my stash to enlarge each block to 15" finished. Now I am going to sash them with a dark green and gold stripe, add more dark green as the final border, and add it to the flimsy pile. I really like how it is coming together. Go see Judy L. at to see more design wall inspirations.
