Design Wall Monday - June 13, 2011

These are the different blocks and projects on my design wall this week.

Bernina Software Sampler - June 2011

This is the project for Bernina Software Sampler for June 2011.  The project is making an embroidered fabric bowl.  This is the first time I have made an embroidery project by printing on the fabric and then embroidering on the fabric.  The printed fabric is fused to a stabilizer like Fast 2 Fuse and embroidered in the hoop with a digitized design.

Stray Thread Quilt Guild
These blocks are for the Stray Threads Quilt Guild. I think this block is the Star of Bethlehem. Using this lock I was able to make two 12" star blocks for the Block Lotto.  

Chloe Quilt - Flying Geese
OK, I know I won't get back to the Chloe Quilt - Flying Geese this week.   I have 2 flying geese blocks made so far.  I need to make 63 more flying geese blocks!  Guess what, I don't like the light blue fabric that is goose part of the block.   I would rather use another green in this fabric line.  I think the problem I have with these fabrics is that there is not enough contrast, they are all medium value.  I might change the colors before I start piecing and if I do I'll cut for the Eleanor Burns method of Flying Geese - much easier than piecing on the bias.

Go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times and see what is on every one's the design walls this week.
