My Design Wall

Today I am going to share my design wall with you.

I am lucky enough to have space for a design wall that is 8' wide and goes from floor to ceiling.

When we installed it, my husband wondered at it's size. Now he admits that I've made great use of it!

Here is the view today...

Too many sewalongs....I know, I know!!!!

There is the latest block in the Harry Potter QAL, Hagrid, hosted by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts...

Here are all the blocks, so far...

I wasn't sure of my fabric choices for Dumbledore, but I've grown to love him...even though he looks like he has a booger hanging out of his nose...

There is the Hand-pieced SAL....still keeping up...

In the above picture, you can also see three blocks for the Dear Jane sewalong that begins this month. I have to admit, I'm still nervous about this one....but the blocks are so sweet!

There is also the 52blocks52 weeks, that the Canadian Quilters' Association is hosting this year...

There is a block (the orange and green diamond block) that won't make the cut. I used a vintage fabric that I like and it turns out being too dull for the cheery 30's reproduction prints in the other blocks. 

I considered letting this project go....but it's only one 6" block per week so I'll keep at it.

Here is the area where some of my I Am Enough quilt is hanging out...

My One Monthly Goal for February had been to get three more components completed for the I Am Enough. That did not happen....I just got the Around the World section done.

My goal for March....I think it will be to get two more sections done for I Am Enough. Wish me luck!....I'm going to need it!

In the above picture, you can also see my February row of my Temperature Quilt entwined amongst the other "stuff". I'm not sure if I can get much sewing done today, but I will finish off the February part of the Temperature Quilt. I don't work on it daily, I find it easy enough to do it every five days or so since the blocks are simple. 

I think that about sums up all I want to say about the state of my design wall today...even though I've left a few items out. 

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal, and also with Elm Street Quilts for the Hand Pieced QAL.

Have a great weekend!


  1. A lot of WIP! I love the bird appliqué, and the row with chevron too! Great design wall! Good luck with I'm Enough ;)

  2. How fun to get a peek at your works-in-progress! I love everything, but I'm always attracted to circles and curves, so I like the three small blocks with those elements, and to applique and birds, so I love your black-background applique block. What a great design wall!

  3. Thank you for the peek into your sanctuary! Love it!

  4. What a terrific wall! Love your projects so much - I saw those HP blocks right off the bat, and what a beautiful braid strip!

  5. Love seeing all those blocks there especially the ones from the hand Pieced QAL! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly goal and good luck with your project!

  6. A big design wall is a lovely and useful thing to have in your sewing room! I enjoyed getting a peek at all of your sew along blocks!
