Design Wall Monday

I love having a big front room - there is enough space to lay out a few quilts and totally dominate the room!!! I keep reminding my family that it *is all about me*... so far its working!!
So this first one is a string quilt. I did not make the blocks. They came from Pene B in OR. She made these as part of our Heartstrings group, and this will be a Quilt of Valor.

This is my other quilt on the floor. Good thing my family likes me! They just walk around these like they don't even exist. I appreciate that. And they don't ever step on the blocks!

Your pineapple blossom sure is looking good. It still pops. I see the green as the major design and the scraps as the background. I LIKE it. Maybe I need to do another one of these!

Love your quilts and the layout for the pineapple blossom is great!! I think you have two winners there. Our families are so kind to work around our projects aren't they!

Both quilts are just awesome!

Love the purple quilt and of course the string quilt also. Sometime I need to get time to make more of those blocks.

Melinda said...

Two great quilts. My cats would love to visit your house to play with your blocks.

Connie said...

Both quilts are beautiful, I really love the Pineapple Blossom blocks.

No children or Cats at my house. I like the Pinapple Blossom quilt but I would put a tiny sashing between them. I use the floor to take pictures all the time. My DH even mopped it for me this week so I could use it for DWM pictures.

Two great quilts in the making!

I could never leave a quilt on the floor...DH used to call himself Godzilla everytime he stepped on the kids toys!

Funny! I have a quilt laying on the floor right now also. My family, too, just walk around it.

Alycia, I love your pineapple quilt. Please be sure and show how you finish it off -- border, no border, any sashing, etc. I have a quilt I started using this block, but already have the rows put together different. I like your setting better. May have to make another one in a different color! :) Dar in MO

Beautiful blocks! I look forward to seeing you finish these quilts, and I'm glad no one is walking on them! lol My great big black lab always walks so carefully around my floor layouts -- so funny! Unfortunately, my cats are not so considerate. :o)
