Design Wall Monday & "Snowbound Quilt"

One of my design walls has the "Tree Time" blocks on it still. I haven't worked on them at all.

One the other design wall is one poor little lonely "Poinsettia Block".

I put it there when I was working yesterday to remind me that I really need to work on this wall hanging.

In the meantime, I resumed quilting on the "Snowbound" quilt yesterday. I finished stitching around the blocks and then started quilting on the blocks. I decided to do a edge to edge loop and stars meandering. I know most people don't quilt over the applique but I decided to see what it would look like. I can't make up my mind if I want to continue or rip it all out and start again.

I believe it looks fine on these Irish Chain blocks but . . .

I'm wondering if it looks too busy or takes away from the applique on the snowman blocks.  I really dread taking it out but I don't want to mess up the quilt.

Be sure to stop by Judy L's to see what everyone else is working on .


  1. with the way you did it - it looks fine to me :)

  2. Vivian you're really working on some fun and pretty things! I really like your lone poinsettia block! :)

  3. Looks great to me, Vivian. I've been eyeing that Poinsettia quilt, too. I think 4 blocks would make a cute wallhanging for each of my daughters.

  4. I like it.

    I have to tell you; I could sit and look at your photo at the top of your blog and just sigh with pleasure!

  5. I think it looks wonderful Vivian, so bright and cheery!

  6. I think quilting over the applique looks great. Sometimes when you don't quilt over the applique the larger motif will puff out too much and gives it a look that may not be what you want. Don't tear it out, it is fab just the way it is!

  7. Love your tree blocks. I collected the patterns in hope that I would someday make the quilt. I'm so glad your someday is closer than mine. LOL
