Design Wall Monday 7/5

img_4632On my design wall today is the center medallion for Judy’s Celebration of Freedom quilt. Judy very generously shared her instructions with us and it just caught my eye.

This is a stunning quilt and I just had to make it. One evening last week, I recreated the quilt in Electric Quilt so I could get measurements and yardage requirements. This was really fun since I don’t use EQ very often. Judy gave us the block names so it was a simple matter of just placing them into the layout and then adding borders that I liked.

Then, I spent all day yesterday on the paper-piecing of the medallion, which is not my favorite thing to do, but it was kind of fun. The good news is that all the fabrics I need for this quit are from my stash.

Not sure what I will do today. Probably cut the squares to make all the quarter-square triangles needed. But I really have a stack of tops and backs that need to be sandwiched. Depends on what mood stikes me. I am on holiday today after all.

Head on over to Judy’s blog to see what’s on everyone’s wall today. And if you are in the mood for a giveaway, visit Karen’s blog for her Sunday giveaway, a day late…
