What's on my design wall? The backing for the strip quilt. Here's a picture of the front:

Here's the back. . . I really think this back could be a quilt all by itself. I LOVE it! It is not finished. I will add borders wide enough to be big enough for the back out of the fabric that is between the square panels and the leaf panels. WTH is she talking about??? This is what I'm talking about ;)
|Love, Love, Love, how this is looking :)
|See the difference in the width. . . I knew I should NOT have made that cut :( It's over a half inch off. The cut is slanted starting from the scrolly fabric below the leaf panel to the scrolly fabric above the leaf fabric. . .
Just keeping it real folks. This one has plenty of issues to discuss... If I were going to do it over again, I would definitely use foundation for the strips for the top. There's a lot of bias going on in that top and that is what I think caused my wavy border. Which makes me question if taking the borders off and resewing them is going to make any difference. . . Again, if you have thoughts or tips with this, please share :)
One more thing, Wednesday is my day to be a part of the 2014 New Blogger's Blog Hop being hosted by Beth over at Plum and June. Get ready to check out all of the great new blogs out there! The group has been working hard to improve the appearance of the blogs and sharing all kinds of cool tips and tricks. You'll notice several (ok, maybe a complete revamp!) changes to my blog. All thanks to the techy things I have learned from the wonderful dialog going on behind the scenes. A HUGE thank you to all of the great bloggers that are involved! Get ready for a hopping Wednesday! :)
Linking up with Design Wall Mondays and Anything Goes Mondays. Check out what everyone else is doing!
Until Wednesday, keep on quilting!
