What's On My Design Wall

I've always wanted to say that.   However,  I did not design this wall hanging.  It is called Blowin' in the Wind designed by Chris Malone, and is in the August 2012 issue of Quilter's World.


I added one extra row.  Most of the fabric is Stonehenge or other Northcott fabric, except for three of the leaves, which are some other company's batik.

In case you are not aware, Northcott has a site called Fabric Circle which you can join.  Each quarter they have a drawing for a fat quarter pack for those who have posted a picture of something they have made using Northcott fabric.  http://www.northcottfabriccircle.com

I have never sewn with Stonehenge batik, but have to say it is lovely to sew with.  I love it.

One more thing.

GO RED SOX!!
 
God Bless You.

Now isn't that pretty! And very seasonal - I went for a walk in the park in the Autumn sunshine earlier just to kick up leaves!

looking good.... I love the look of leaves and the sound of them crunching underfoot.
I did not know about the site I will have tocheck it out as they make some great fabric
in stitches

That's certainly a very "autumn" looking quilt and lovely as well. I don't always like the feel of batiks, but they look lovely once made up.
Well done and take care.

Lovely piece on your wall. I'm too old for leaf pile jumping, but I do love walking thru them.

That's really great. I too love the scrunchy noise of walking on dry leaves, but I'm not at all keen on walking on wet, slippy, slimey ones!
