Design Wall Monday 12/07/15


Another block down!  I did this one late yesterday -- I had the pieces already cut out.  I'm not crazy about how the points lined up - or rather didn't line up - but you can't see it's off from afar.  I'm leaving it as is.

I thought I'd show another shot of my Farm Girl Vintage quilt as it is right now on my design wall. Just a few more blocks to go.  I really should focus on the strawberry block so there isn't a hole in the middle of the quilt!  I have these up on the wall in the order in which they appear in the book.  I'll move them around for the final placement.  At this rate I'm not sure if I'll get them all done by the end of the year, but that is still my goal.  There is a lot of piecing in the border, so I'm sure that part won't be finished.  I'll be happy if the blocks are done, sashing sewn and the quilt top without borders is complete.  We'll see.  I have some other things that take priority, but I'll give it a shot.  I'm considering purchasing some of Lori's additional patterns to fill out the set instead of putting the same star in each corner.  She's got some cute ones that are hard to resist!

Wow, I'm really liking your quilt. I don't usually go for colors that bright. I tend to use them in winter so maybe I will be shopping for some. Thanks for the inspiration.
