Playing with scraps ~

With summer coming to an end, and me heading back to work, and our days - hotter than hot, I haven't been in the mood to do much sewing. I did manage to make a Christmas quilt that still needs a backing, a lap quilt that still needs a backing and a little wall hanging that still needs finishing. The fun news is that ...The San Diego Quilt Show will be here in a few weeks, maybe that's what I need to get me going again! Just a peek of the wall hanging ~~

Design Wall ~

After reading Marianne's blog  (thequiltingedge )  about making a design wall - I decided to give it a try.
Although I did mine a bit different. I used one long insulation board 3/4 x 4' x 8' and cut it to 5' x 6' and  instead of using batting I used felt, because that is what I already had. My problem is that- where I use the duct tape to tape the insulation board together, The tape, shows through the felt, you can see it at the bottom of the picture.
Other then that- I really like it!
Thank you Marianne!
 Ya all should give it a try - pretty easy!
