What's on the Design Wall

“Tula in a Box” Quilt Top Finished

This weekend I moved forward on one of my stalled quilting projects: I finished my Tula in a Box quilt. If you check out this category of posts you will see the story behind this quilt and stages of progress in a series of previous posts – Tula Time!.

This weekend I went from this on the large design wall in the hallway:

To this:



This quilt top measures approximately 82 inch x 82 inches (208 cm x 208 cm) and is comprised of 36 – 12 inch x 12 inch (finished) blocks.

I love the brightly colored fabrics in this quilt, especially the fabulous prints of 6 animals (frog, owl, fancy bird, squirrel, raccoon, and bee) in 3 different color ways, such as this one of the owl:


Originally I thought about piecing the leftover fat quarters and scraps into the backing for the quilt, but I’ve decided to save those for another project.

Instead I am going to search for a backing when I visit a couple quilting friends in Washington state in February (any excuse to go shopping with quilting friends!)

  1. Stunning!! I love how defined and vibrant the blocks are…especially the critters!! It’s like looking at a beautifully finished page in one of those intricate coloring books. Definitely eye candy!!

  3. Just the brightness you can use in your life right now. I remember the post not too long ago with TTQH helping you get it up on the design wall. I think that will make nestling under extra special,
