Design Wall Monday June 11, 2012

 Smith Mountain Majesty is overfilling my design wall today.  There are still a few more blocks to put together, but I can definitely see how it is coming together.  This one is another pattern from Bonnie Hunter's Scraps and Shirtails II book.  I love the way the alternate blocks surround the stars.  To see what other people have up on their design walls, head over to Judy's blog.  Such a fun way to start out the week.
Sydney wanted to snuggle on the couch last night, I wonder when they get too big to pass out cold on somebody?  Not too soon I hope.

I love the way the blocks form medallions around the stars.

LOVE both pictures!!!! Cuddling still exists here too; sadly Cassie is bigger than I am now, so Mom-lap-time has long been gone with her.

So....I predict that SMM will reach a sewn quilt center today? :D

Ooh, I love this quilt and the colors you chose. This will be a stunning quilt.

The cuddle picture is so cute too. Kids grow up too soon. My boys used to cuddle too and now I have the grandkids to cuddle...It's so sweet to see this.

Bonnie is the best scrap quilter pattern maker -- yours is great. Love your colors. Your princess is so sweet cuddle up with daddy. Such a good shot for a future memory quilt for her when she's in college!

Melinda said...

Great looking quilt. The two blocks go so well together. I love all her patterns.

Have I mentioned I am jealous? LOL. If I can figure out what to do with this month's UFO I might get to working on SMM because its number will come up soon!

Love your blues and browns together! Great quilt, and I too love Bonnie's designs.

Beautiful color combo, the quilt is is going to be gorgeous.

The 13 year old still trys to snuggle sometimes, but as she's now 5'4" and all muscle, she gets really heavy pretty quickly.
