Design Wall Monday--March 14, 2011

I spent some lovely hours piecing this weekend, working on the Brown Bag Quilt Contest project.  I'm making Sunday Picnic from Heather Mulder Petersen's book, Livin Large. 

Leader-Enders finally came about when I sewed the sashing pieces to the center squares.  I really must continue doing leader-enders!

The blues are what my swap partner sent so I want them to stand out.  Four more blocks complete the center, but I wanted to see a preliminary layout before I decided what those four blocks should be. 

Since two of the blue prints have very light backgrounds and there are two black and white print blocks, I decided to balance those out by making an additional two each of the brighter blue and green print blocks. So far, so good!  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times blog.
