Design Wall Monday 5/2/2022

The pink theme seems to be continuing on my design wall for yet another week. I pieced a backing yesterday to go with the Uneven 9Patch baby quilt top that I shared in last week's post.

I like to use flannel as the backing for baby quilts, and I didn't have enough of any single fabric, so I combined several different pink flannels for this scrappy back. It measures about 44" x 51".

The next step is to cut some batting, then get this little quilt layered and ready for quilting.

My quilting time has been very limited lately due to recent travels. These have included a trip last week to Paducah for the AQS show. It was so much fun to be back in Paducah with the city overrun by quilters everywhere, and the quilts at the show were amazing as usual. I haven't yet had time to go through my photos and prepare a blogpost of my favorites, but I hope to do so soon.

You can see the winners of the top prizes at the AQS website HERE. This was one of my favorites from the show. It is called "Orange Crushed It" by Andrea Brokenshire of Round Rock, TX.  It won "Best Wall Quilt, Stationary Machine Workmanship."

There are also more views of this quilt at The Quilt Show website, including very close shots of the incredible applique work and the confetti background. You will be amazed--take a look HERE.

Check out what other quilters are working on this week at Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts and Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt.

Happy quilting!

  1. So great that you got to Paducah! I enjoy the puzzle-making of pieced backings, trying to make the assortment of chosen fabrics fit.

  2. PINK is entirely appropriate for the back of that quilt, Julie! I'm sure you will move on to some GREEN sewing soon enough.
