Good Monday Morning! It's been a long time since my last Design Wall Monday. Being back in the Studio is so nice. The last couple of weeks have been a roller coaster ride, and not a fun ride. So let me fill you in really quick. Dad went for a yearly heart check up, found out he needed a surgery to open up an artery in his neck. That went fine and he was home the next day. Three days later mom has a heart attack and was hospitalized for 4 days. Three days after that I became sick with a fever of 103.9 for two days. Well we're all doing better and things are back on track. All this commotion kept me out of the Studio for two weeks. Let me tell you, I NEED this stitching time! It felt good to finally start working on the Moon Flower Magic. The background fabric in this picture looks black but I assure it's Navy Blue.
Below is the quilt I had promised to make. Well I had to make some changes in order to keep the units in this quilt the same dimensions as in the other quilt patterns in the Back Porch Blooms series.
The new quilt below shows a thinner stem and leaves that are the same dimensions as in the Back Porch Blooms Block. I'll also be adding an inside border to mine and a scrappy binding. Of course the borders can be left off if you don't like adding borders.
If all goes well I plan to have this pattern ready for printing by next Tuesday. This will also be the date for the next linky party with a giveaway. The linky party is for Back Porch Blooms projects only. They don't need to be finished projects. Any progress you've made is fine. There's still plenty of time to join in the fun. I'll be hosting two more linky parties, one in September and one in October to finish up the quilt along. If you'd like to join in and need some inspiration I've posted several free patterns on my blog in the tutorials tab at the top of the blog or you can click on the Back Porch Blooms image in the sidebar to taken to all post about this series. Projects of your own design using the Back Porch Blooms Block are also welcome in the linky party.
Hope to see you next Tuesday!
