Design Wall Monday and Quiltmaker

My design wall hasn't changed one bit.  It's been a crazy April so far with spring break and my daughter and two grandkids here for over a week.  I definitely couldn't sew when I had those two adorable kids here.  Nicole is 11 months and Jared is 3 1/2.  My other daughter and husband were here for a few days also, and add in a family burial and dinner and Easter...  Yes, busy!

However I did machine quilt a large quilt, starting in March and finishing this past weekend.  I have shown it on my blog before but now it's to the binding stage!  I have pre-entered it in the Palouse Patchers quilt show in Moscow this coming weekend so it needs to be finished!
Finger Lakes Log Cabin from a pattern by Judy Martin
The big news is my two blog posts for Quiltmaker Scrap Squad.  I can now show them and the quilts I made!  The first I call Gemstones and go to the post to see the original pattern I was asked to do on Quiltmaker Quilt Pleasures blog.

The next quilt I have now named Charming Chopsticks based on comments I received on this blog post!  Check out the link to Quiltmaker Quilt Pleasures blog!
I have my third assignment and I'm looking forward to getting started on the next quilt.  I have yet to make a dent in my scraps as a member of the Scrap Squad!

Linking to Patchwork Times.  Check it out for other Design Wall Mondays!

Wow, that log cabin quilt is amazing! You do such great work, Julie.

Amazing quilts. Your stash of scraps is large and I know the feeling of not making a dent. I think the scraps multiply when we aren't looking. I'll have to google the quilt show times and try to come see. It's so close and I Love a good quit show.

I enjoy their show every year and will be looking for your quilt next weekend. The scrap squad projects are really beautiful, can I say I like them better than the original? Looking forward to the 3rd one!

Julie, you are amazing! I love everything you do.
How much fun did you have with those kiddos!!!

Wow Julie! Your eye putting fabrics together for scrap quilts is amazing. I love this design and the palette. The palette you used for the hero's homecoming/dogwoods was equally impressive. You're a perfect for the scrap squad.
