Design Wall Monday - 01/24/11

I need to do something about these dark pictures!  You can tell that my lamp is in the left-hand side.  This is my design "table" as of right now.  The little pink four-patch from last week grew into a block. This will be for the Block Lottery program in the class I teach (starting tonight).  The block at the top is part of a demo for the same class.  It will eventually become a basket block. I'll post pictures of the finished class projects soon.  The other fabric shown is one of my favorites.  I got it a few years ago and didn't know what to do with it - I just knew I liked it.  It is rows of people at work cubicles.  Tonight I'm going to use it to make a fabric basket for one of my husband's co-workers using this tried and true tutorial from Pink Penguin.  I've made several of these over the past few years and they are always a hit.  Instead of piecing together squares for the top portion, I will put a solid strip of the novelty fabric.  I think it will be really cute and will take less time than sewing together all of those squares!
