Design Wall Monday

Yes....if you tuned in last Monday you did see the exact same quilt.
I've been hemming and hawing all week about how to

finish this quilt and I have finally decided.
I am going to add

a 3" border in the purple fabric and then after it is quilted I

will scallop the edges.
Not sure how many scallops, but the corners

for sure will be rounded. I will figure out if the rest of the quilt

will be scalloped when I get to that part.

This quilt will be entered into our local quilt show along with

the other 3 ladies who participated in this Round Robin.

They already have thiers quilted and to the binding stage,
but they got the "finger" pointed at them months ago
and were told that their
(or else!)

Since I missed the first "finger point"
and am running a little behind
I got "the finger point" on Friday night!
So I'm getting busy!

My very first embroidery design!

Quite a few months ago I purchased a software

package that would enable me to design embroideries

to use on my Designer 1 embroidery machine.

I have been wanting to design quilt labels, but first

I needed to learn the ins and outs of the software

and then figure out how to get this transfered to a floppy

disc so it could go into my embroidery machine to be

stitched out.

Well today I finally did it! and the picture above

is the very first one I stitched out!
I've still got alot to learn, but I am pretty happy
with what I accomplished today!


  1. Love the Round Robin quilt. You have a wonderful group of quilters that worked on this project. Do you have photos of the other quilts?

  2. That is a lovely round robin quilt! Sometimes they don't turn out so nice :)
