This update could be part of my ongoing series – What’s on the Design Wall, but it is more like “Guess Who is Hogging the Design Wall?!?!”
The answer is – Terry the Quilting Husband!
I have not posted an update in a long time on what Terry has been working on. He took a little break from quilting projects to work on house projects.
Last time I posted on his project, it was back in July in the 07/26/16 post What’s on the Design Wall. In this post, Terry was working on a “stacked coins” type quilt.
If you are wondering what became of that quilt..well..it is “on hold” right now. It was not working design wise and Terry discovered some technical errors in his sewing that made the quilt “wavy” when it was assembled. Something went awry in the piece of the denim setting strips.
So we decided that I would take it apart (and down from the design wall) and work on reimagining it at a future date. Terry was fine with that and knew the quilt was just not working. Even as a new quilter, he realizes that sometimes you have to just put something aside for later, and maybe take it apart and start over.
But he did not give up on quilting and has a new piece up on the design wall now (hogging the large design wall in our hallway!).
It’s a Flannel “Half-Square Triangle” Party!
I think Terry really enjoys making “half-square” triangles. I think he finds it mediative.
Terry selected the fabric for this quilt from a collection of Woolies flannel fat quarters we purchased during a road trip.
He promises to work on sewing the quilt together Thanksgiving week so I can have the design wall back!
