Design Wall Monday 04/25/16


I've done it!  I finally finished all of the blocks for the Farm Girl Vintage sampler quilt.  I kept putting off making the last block.  I think because I was trying to figure out what  color to make the sheep.  I just made the cat block in grey fabric, and I didn't want to have too much grey in the quilt.  I tried to decide which color would round out the quilt, and I finally decided on pink (even though I just made a pink pig block).  I'm happy with how it turned out and I don't know why I was so worried about it.  I just need to embroider the eyes and legs.  I'll probably do all of the embroidery next (before I sew the blocks together).  I'll get it all out of the way at one time.  Then I'll cut up my scraps for the sashing cornerstones.  I have plenty of those and will still have scraps leftover.  After that, I have a LOT of flying geese units to make for the inner border.

I meant to get a picture of the design wall this morning with all blocks, but I ran out of the house without getting the picture.  Big meeting first thing this morning, so my mind was elsewhere.

Next up, back to the Crossroads blocks so I don't get too far behind on those.

Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what everyone is working on today. Also linking up with Quilt Story and Let's Bee Social later this week.

Such a lovely sheep. And pink is just the right colour.

I love your pink sheep. It makes me smile just looking at it. I made mind with a gray body and pink face. Maybe they're related! Rina

Your sheep is lovely! I really like the colors you've chosen for your Farm Girl Vintage blocks: bright yet still vintage. One of these days I'll get around to doing a Farm Girl quilt myself. So many ideas! So little time! :-)
