In The Zone.....

I am on the home stretch....


All four corners of the quilt will be flanked by 3 NYB quadrants....
Then the borders will have the large spikes...

oh - how I would love a design wall rather than a design floor!

I am loving this black/white dot I picked up last week....Habitat....there is just something about it I am really liking...


I thought I would share with you the plates we hung on the wall in our family room...they are all {but one} from Anthropologie....the bottom middle one is an old small oval platter....from my husband's family....


Have a great Monday!

A feast for the eyes! The NYB is certainly going to be beautiful! I really like the aqua dot, but that is one of my favourite colours, of course. Such pretty plates too!

Nicky said...

Ooooooh! Love that NYB Mary but I want to see it all now! Just too impatient for words. Finish it, finish it please :D

Also love that bee on a plate - I think I'm right in saying that Napoleon Bonaparte used the bee as his symbol! Wonder if the plate harks back to that?

Carla said...

Wow Mary! Those NYBs are beautiful. And I love the plates- and Anthropologie too. Ahhh, they would get all my money if I would spend any of it on clothes instead of fabric. :)

Mary said...

You have a gorgeous NYB! Beautiful work!!! And I love your plate wall. I'm about to do the same in my home with Spode Christmas plates I've been collecting each year. I just have to measure and count them so I can get the hangers.

I'm too SOO anxious to see the NYB! I will check out the black dots.

You don’t need an expensive design wall. You can just use a large piece of cotton batting and some tacks. It works great and you can pull it down when you need the wall to look pretty again.
