DWM 9/15/14: Kaleidoscope Quilting in Progress

Not exactly my design wall today - more like my sewing table...

I'm working on quilting my entry into my guild's 30th anniversary challenge project. The theme is "30-Something" and the reveal is in October. Here's part of the top but this is only a portion of it, I don't want to show too much.
Kaleidoscope Quilting in Progress

The blocks are 6" square. I'm doing straight-line quilting using the walking foot, and it will end up with stitching like a kaleidoscope block. So far all the SID work is done, and I've made some of the vertical passes. When all the vertical passes are done, I'll rotate the quilt and stitch in the other direction. The kaleidoscope quilting will come out looking like this:

The other projects I'm working on can't be shown on the blog, so my posts are going to be pretty few and far between for awhile. I do hope to get some good photos of my Mega Medallion quilt to post later this week.

Linking up today with Judy at Patchwork Times; check out all the design wall inspiration over there.

Around the World Blog Hop
Last week I participated in the Around the World Blog Hop, and I nominated Casey York to post this week. Casey is a friend from the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild, where we're in a bee together. She's super talented and her style is unique, modern silhouette applique with embroidery. Casey has a book coming out soon, articles and patterns to come, and she's lecturing at Quilt Con.  You can see her blog hop post here.


  1. I like the pattern that the quilting is going to make! I can't believe September is already halfway through, so October and your reveal won't be too far away!

  2. I love the look of the kaleidoscope quilting. It dresses up a simple block.
