Design Wall Monday - May 28

This nice long weekend included some quilting time! I pieced the top for this lap quilt - Urban Cabin by Atkinson Designs. It was really quick and fun to put together - this is a pattern I'll use again for charity quilts. The large rectangle can be strip pieced, or you can use a striped fabric and skip that step. This still needs some borders and then it can be quilted.

I also had time to finish up my Doc quilt for the Schnibbles Parade.  I added a row, to make this a lap-size quilt.  That meant that the borders needed to be adjusted to fit, so I had to get a little creative with that.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out - the fabric is Lovely by Sandy Gervais.

A couple wool projects got finishing touches this weekend, too...

The other quilt I'm working on is last summer's Block of the Week from Primitive Gatherings.  This top needs to be done before June 6, when the 2012 BOW starts!  The borders are taking forever!  I've been working on them for months, but I think I'm getting close to done.  I'll post these when they're finished.
