Design Wall Monday 2/12/18

There's good news and bad news about my On Ringo Lake quilt project:
Good news #1:  All the parts for the quilt have been made!
Good news #2:  Assembly of the parts has begun!
Bad news: Lots of thick seams making assembly/pressing very difficult. I have taken down all of the blocks and sashing from the design wall, pressing some of my seams open to make joining them together a little easier (I hope.)

This is the center of my quilt, with a few stray cornerstone squares still on the wall.

On Ringo Lake, pattern by Bonnie Hunter

I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!

  1. pretty colors but lots of pieces I can see why you are pressing some seams open this looks like one I would from the start.

  2. This is stunning, Julie! I'm sorry it's giving you fits. But I really love the way you were able to use so many different black/white/gray prints and still get really good contrast so the patchwork design pops. That is not easy to do!

  3. Those colors are making a very striking design. Good luck with your sewing!

  4. Definitely the curse of Bonnie's beautiful designs! Thanks for the heads up since I'm still making up the blocks (halfway through!). I've found that it's just best to let the seams and intersections flop the way they want to go which usually winds up where it's flattest. What you've done so far is looking very good though!!

  5. This is going to be really pretty! Keep at it! Pressing seams open sounds like a good idea. I'm still making my blocks.

  6. Bonnie's quilts often have lots of seams getting together but I sure like her designs. Your ORL looks fabulous. Your colors really "speak" to me. Great job.

  7. Your ORL is looking fabulous! I haven't started assembling ORL yet, but even with the seams pressed open, I've been struggling with getting Magnolia Mystery seams to play nice.

  8. I'm working on On Ringo Lake too so thanks for the info. Yours is beautiful
