i was inspired by a blog on making a wall quilt for my new craft room.
deciding on what kind of quilt to paint on my wall was a bit frustrating. there are SO many beautiful quilts. even if decided on a block, the possibilities are endless.
so it got me thinking on what type of quilts i like.
samplers! (i do enjoy them at Costco haha)
so here's my check list on the wall quilt
-taking measurements of the wall, divide and conqure! haha, i mean, figureing out how many blocks will go on it
-asking family and friends to pick a block they like
-arranging the blocks
-stenciling on the wall
-then, paint party!
*lightbulb* oh! and then i can make it for reals!! brilliant!

i won a table runner kit from the quilt guild earlier this year and finally got around to making it...well, the top at least.
now all we need is a table.
and now that we've already spent several nights in our new house *happy dance for being homeowners* i figured i should finish up the 1930's quilt.
and in our new house, there's room to lay the 8x7 rows of 11" block in the livingroom. teehee :)
the last couple of days, i've been to excited to just sit and knit, so i finished the quilt top by adding the 3 borders. the quilt was suppose to be a 6x7 block but it would only fit the top of our bed.
prairie points are added instead of binding. haha, we'll see if i get to that point after all the quilting!
