Design Wall Monday

Here are two little quiltlets that I pieced last fall. Over the past couple of days, I have quilted them on my DSM and sewed the bindings on - two projects finished, and two off my list of UFO's! I learned a few things with these, I prefer a cotton batting on these little quilts over a polyester, the wonky stars needs more contrast, and I learned how to do a ladder stitch to sew down the binding. Both of these quiltlets came about from the generosity of others. Marcie at Patchalot More offered the Christmas Tree pattern a couple of years ago, and I used The Happy Zombie's Jingle Jolly pattern as a starting point for the wonky star quiltlet. Be sure to stop by Judy L.'s for more blogland inspiration on Design Wall Monday.


  1. I love the wonky star quiltlet. I've been working with the smallest crumbs and strips lately in a crumb-along and my bits would make a lot of those. What a great project!

  2. Congratulations on tackling your UFO's! I need to follow your example.

  3. I really like wonky stars and your little quiltlet is very nice. I like the trees aslo.
