Design Wall Monday...

I got a little bit of piecing time in, my goal was to have my Halloween quilt top finished. That way it can be on my UFO quilting list and get done in time for Halloween 2012..... right?  Oh and thanks to all who told me that the Pumpkin Fabric I used for the borders Glows in the dark... it totally does!!!

I pieced a few blocks for my Jacobs Ladder QAL ( over at http://imperamagna.blogspot.com/)
a few more blue one, and the red ones... I didn't know if I would like the red with cheddar... but I do!! Maybe my color palette is expanding!

 Then - I quilted some Quilts of Valor.... my pantry is Empty   So I thought I better kick it in gear - kind of like in College when you pulled an all nighter.... that is me!!!

This one was pieced by Kathy of Longmont.  She and her buddy are prolific quilters. This was a fun quilt - I love the fabrics she used!



This is the backing ... Yum!!!

The next Quilt of Valor I got quilted was made by Mary M of Greeley. She thought red thread would look great on it, and I agree!! Altho - I admit - I was a little concerned... but she knew what she was talking about!

A few close ups - I used a musical Panto - I can't remember the name of it - but it was by Deb Giessler.




This is the backing - wild!!


I got a few more quilted, but don't have the pics yet - so come back tomorrow - I will have those as well.

All super nice. Your halloween one is very cute and love the quilt that looks like it has shadows of the blocks of fabric.

I'm not a cheddar fan but I do like it with the plaids... I may be converted yet!

You've been very busy quilting... love all those new quilts!

I love the cheddar. Found a small bit myself for some crumb blocks in reds and blues and it was just what I needed. Your blocks look great!

Glow in the dark jack-o-laterns is just cool (and very fun). Very pretty quilts, all of them.

I just found your blog and love all the quilts you are making/binding. Great work!!!!
On Nov.5 there is a quilt (the last one pictured) by Kathy/Lafayette and Connie from Loveland. What is the name of the pattern? Do either of these people have a blog?
I will look for your answer on a comment section.
Thanks, Emily/Texas

Interesting how the 'cheddar' in your jacobs ladder takes center stage no matter what you're putting in the background. Thanks for sharing!

What wonderful projects you've done! Excellent!

Cheddar is a neutral, right? :) These blocks look great. Love all your quilting on these wonderful donated quilts--how fun to work on such a variety.

Nice quilting on the QOV.
I'm also doing a cheddar JL with Impera magna's QAL. YIKES! Mine's bright.
