Design Wall Monday
Also on my 'to do' list this week is to finish quilting and put binding on the table runner put together last Thursday from some Orphan blocks which came from Shirley, who was my dear friend's mother. The pattern is Doe and Darts, and Shirley had made these three blocks. Some of the pieces are hand pieced, and other parts are machine pieced. She was probably auditioning colors in different places before making a bed sized quilt of this pattern. I replaced the center square in one block so that two blocks matched, and put the third block in the center. I had a bit of darker teal in my stash and cut the binding from that to give the quilt a frame. It doesn't match anything in my home, but it is fun to see a project finished.
I really enjoy seeing what other quilters are working on by linking up with Judy's Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
