off the design wall



I've been busy getting some block sets into tops. We are moving at the end of june and i thought i"m more likely to loose parts if they are not sewn together so i've "topped" 8 sets of blocks. First is a set of swap blocks that turned into a baby quilt-that picture is pretty washed out, the background is kona black. Then a Valentines swap, that one is going to be a table cloth. The 3 tops from a set of leaf blocks. A baby quilt, a table runner and a bitty wall hanging all came out of that set. Then a set of vegetable blocks that i made. This one still needs borders. Its about 73 inches square, but i'm kinda thinking it could go up to 95 or so square and go on my bed. Any suggestions for borders? I've got a multi print with all the veggies on it but i dont think i want a 12 in plain border. How bout Brown(2in?) then more of the green(2in?4 in?) then the veggie print(8 in?) Then the last pic is a mutilation of Bonnie Hunter's "Strip Twist". I've got 2 of those but i'm sure one pic is enough.

Ok..now I have to go to Bonnie's site and get that Strip Twist pattern. That is really cool! I love your veggie quilt too.

Wow, if moving is what it takes to get blocks made into tops, maybe we should all be moving. ;-) Love your vegetable quilt as well as the strip quilt. And you can't go wrong with leaves, can you?
