Yay!

At last! I have a design wall!!! I have wanted one for ages and decided to get on and do it. Its actually only a piece of wadding pinned to the wall, but it works!

This is going to be Em's quilt which i actually started cutting out last october! It was lovely to see it as a whole - i'm not sure the blocks are going to stay in this sequence but have left it so that both Em and i can be sure we like it. There is going to be sashing inbetween the blocks- in bright pink!


So now i just need to get on and cut out the sashing, sort out what backing Em wants and order some wadding!

Pretty pretty colours - and how swish to have your very own design wall!

Oh I just love those colours Maria ... so young and fresh .... and PINK - mmmmm :o)!!!! Isn't it just so much easier with a design wall??!! I've got one but I have to hang it in the hallway so there's not a lot of room to step back and admire the layout he he he.
Hugs,
Joy :o)

What a great idea. You know, when that comes down, you're going to be left with a big blank bit of wall that you immediately want to fill with something else! x

How lovely to see it all pinned up... beats the living room floor! Lovely colours in the quilt!

Your wall looks great. And your quilt looks fantastic too.

How do you put the wading on the wall????? Is it with a frame????

what a lovely idea - it looks so pretty up there - like Kitty says you'll need a constant succession of projects now as the plain wall will never do!
