Design Wall Monday 10/22/12

We've been asked to make larger neonatal quilts for the larger isolettes. The size is kind of odd 33 1/2 x 46.  So I went through some books and found one that was close to it - 36 x 48 - in Nancy Martin's Potting Shed Patchwork book.  Then I had to resize it and simplify it.  I changed the corner blocks from 9 patches to squares and the inner flower block into another square. By manipulating the size of the pieces, I was able to get the 33 1/2 x 46.  Here's a photo of the blocks laid out on my design wall:
Once I've sewn the pieces together, I'll add a 3" border to get the right dimensions.  This will be my NEWFo if I haven't finished it by the end of the month. 

What's on your design wall?  Go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times and Lyn's BOMs Away to see what eye candy others have for us.  I always enjoy that.  Now back to cleaning for my 2 sets of company coming in November.  Oh, and if you like paper piecing and animals, you still have time to go to my last Applique Thursday post and comment or link or both to win A Quilter's Ark - a great book!


  1. You've done well finding a measurement that fits and fabric that goes with the need for your donation.

  2. To cute! The kitty's just make this so much fun.

  3. Love that cat fabric! When I finish my master's I do believe I will hit some of my stash and make quilts for our hospital's isolettes. Thanks for the inspiration. This one you're doing up is so cheery. :)

  4. Looks great. You know I love cats.
