Design Wall Monday

Time has flown by.  I haven't posted design wall Monday for a bit as I really can't show some of my projects!  I have two small charity quilts on my design wall.  My first blog post for Quiltmaker goes live Friday and I also have my second quilt going live on April 3rd.  Be sure to follow Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures Blog!  You will get to see two quilts I have been working on this year.  Here is a hint on the second one, part of the border and backing!
scrunched up backing, border and binding for Scrap Squad quilt #2
Design Wall - Leftover scraps from Scrap Squad quilt #1.  This will be a charity quilt when it's assembled.

Design Wall - This has been on the design wall for weeks.  I keep compacting the pieces.

 I made these two child quilts for Quilts for Kids.  I requested two quilt kits, the only thing I had to provide was assembly, quilting, and batting.  Even the backing is included in the kit.  I happened to have the same gray Moda Marble the kit included that I was able to use for
binding on one quilt and I had enough backing left on the first quilt to use it as binding.  Below is a quilt top I made from a Connecting Threads kit and I will get it quilted for a graduation gift for a girl that was a member of my 4-H group for years.

quilt for Lindsay - worked on at a retreat and didn't have a chance to really lay it out so I just sewed rows and then tried to arrange them.  I don't recommend that!

I gifted this queen size quilt to my late son's former roommates Cole, and Danielle.
