Design Wall Monday


This is on my design wall today but will be coming down for this evening's quilt guild meeting. Our program is about the guild's Laurel Janes group, members of which have been working on making DJ quilts for almost 3 years. The program is free and all visitors are welcome. To read more about it, click here.

With last week's finish of the 13th triangle in the bottom row, I was able to sew the top and bottom rows onto the center. Slowly, but surely, I'm now working on the side triangles...

WOW! I love the DJ in the brights, I find the CW fabrics to be a bit depressing, but the brights...WOW!

What a magnificent array of colors! You've really made this one look totally original.

This makes me want to start over...I only have 40 done, wouldn't be too bad...I love the variety in all of them...so many ideas...

Vicki said...

Just gorgeous and totally your own quilt. I quilted my friends Dear Jane and I love that quilt so much. I am tempted to start one myself!!

Mary said...

The thumbnail sure caught my eye this morning. Great progress on your DJ. The black background on the triangles is striking. I have the book but not the inclination to devote multiple years to a project I know will take a while!

This is an amazing blast of color and detail and work and effort. It's wonderful, Anya. Give yourself a huge hug from all of us who have been watching your progress.
Bravo!

Beautiful and so inspiring! I love your choice in fabrics. Last week two of my friend and I decided to start on our DJ and will be using Kaffe Fasset fabrics!

Beth said...

OH! I have purchased the DJ book and have planned it in the back of my brain for about a year...in brights! Seeing your progress may just spur me on! This is SO pretty..and I had never thought of using the black, but it makes those colors SING! Love it, love it love it! well done...

Your DJ is stunning with those gorgeous colors. DJ is in my quilting bucket list...and I'll be saving your picture for my inspiration file!
