Design Wall Monday--Dec 27, 2010

We had a lovely Christmas, but more about that in a separate post.  Yesterday I played with fabric and even hit the quilt shop with my sister and SIL.  I'm working again on the Kitchen Sink quilt from the book Scrap Basket Surprises. 

Originally I was just going to use my blue and red scraps but since it just about kills me not to put green in a quilt, I cut up some of those scraps too.

Mock up of some of the little paddle wheels.

At the quilt shop I picked up a couple of yards of this dot, which will become the setting triangles for the Kitchen Sink quilt.  I also picked up some more background fabrics as my stash is getting very low on those.  No idea what the borders will be made of yet, but I plan to use flannel for the backing.  Don't have that yet either!  See more WIPs on Design Walls on Judy's blog.  Happy Monday to me, I don't have to work at Job #2 all week!  I'm planning to take my sister and a friend up to Jalama Beach tomorrow.  However, if the roads are bad we may just go to Solvang instead.  Either way, we're getting out of town!day.

That stack of reds in the first picture just looks thrilling. Im really interested to see how this scrappy quilt turns out. The greens really set it all off beautifully.

Im almost embarrassed to ask but when did your background change? It looks wonderful!

I recognize that kitchen sink! (I STILL need to bind mine, shame on me!) I hope you enjoy the process, Annie. I went ahead and double stitched the little cut off triangle to reclaim the waste, and now have a little hst project going, too.
