Design Wall Monday

Here's what is on the quilting agenda for this week...

One panel of Grandma's drapes has been cut into loads of 2 inch squares, and put together into this Watercolor Heart. 

There are at least two squares in one of the middle rows that should probably be switched out with brown squares.  Yuck - more ripping out.  But at least I've gotten to the point in my life where I have enough patience to realize that it's worth it to do it right, and not just call it 'good enough' and continue on.

For a first attempt using this method, the result isn't too bad.  It still needs 2 borders, the first probably dark brown- not sure about the second.  The back, binding and hanging sleeve will be cut from one of the other drapery panels.

Most of the predominantly dark brown squares have been used up, but there are lots with pink and the light green & yellow.  My next try will be a lighter heart, or maybe a wreath.

  1. Your turned an old drape into a work of art! It's very pretty. Looking forward to seeing it with the borders.
