What's on the Design Wall Monday

Enter my giveaway here.

Yes! I have a new project on the design wall -- but first, I forgot one of the birthday prezzies sent to me from Nurse Jessi!

While I was taking photos of my  UgLy Bag from itsnursejessi, I forgot about the coffee mug coaster she also sent me. Because it was on my desk, under my coffee mug, where I use it every day!

Can you see that it's a bumble bee? and yes, that's one of the Australian Starbucks mugs sent by My Little Sailor while he was in Brisbane this summer. Jessi, every time I put down my coffee mug, I think of you!

Now, onto the design wall.  I have all the blocks made for the March Jelly Roll Party at Ruth's Stitchery. The pattern is "Main Street," by Sassafras Lane Designs. The jelly roll is Xanadu Batiks by Moda. I must confess, the piecing on this one is not as precise as I normally like to do. I was in a hurry, so some (OK, many) of my flying geese have a bit of their "wings" nipped off. I'm hoping when it is quilted and washed, the cotton batting will crinkle up enough to hide that!

I should be able to sew the rows together and add the borders today. Then it will go off to Wolf Creek Quilting for quilting.

Edited to add linking up to Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.


And also Show and Tell Tuesday at i have to say.

Have you commented on yesterday's post to win some Tula Pink "Saltwater" fat quarters and her book?

  1. This looks like stained glass - awesome quilt!

  2. Cue little mug rug - the quilt is fantastic - love the blacks & bright colours

  3. The mug rug looks great, Marti. I love the black with the bright colours in the quilt. Fab-u-lous! :o)

  4. That quilt is fabulous! Love bright colors with black.

  5. I do love the way black contrasts colours so well, so much better than white! Great work!

  6. What a bright and busy design! The thumbnail on DWM caught my eye.

  7. I agree with 'A Nudge' comments - it does look like stain glass. I also like working with black and bright colors. Nice job.
