My new design wall - look Mum - no pins! ;-)

I had read a tip in blogland somewhere ;-) that a cheap felt/flannel backed vinyl tablecloth can serve as a design wall.   So, on my next visit to Spotlight, I went searching.  I found a large rectangle tablecloth for $7.99 and hey presto!  I have a design wall.  I don't need to use pins now to keep my blocks in place ;-)

So, the first blocks I put on my new wall, was all of the autumn toned blocks I have received from various swap partners.  It is so hard to believe that I only started quilting in April 2010 and participated in my first swap in May 2010 - I feel like I have been doing this for ages ;-)

I am thinking the two central blocks (paper pieced & applique) will be made into cushions for the lounge - they deserve to be on display all of the time and they will fit in with the decor ;-)

next are the Christmas Blocks I have received


here are a collection of purple blocks

next are a collection of 'others' ;-)


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my 2010 swap partners
I have really enjoyed 'meeting' you all, and hope it continues through 2011 ;-)
