Design Wall Monday--May 9, 2011

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day.  We held our annual brunch here and enjoyed mini muffin omelets, bacon, fresh berries, homemade chocolate chip scones, pumpkin bread, and waffles, plus a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting that was to die for.  Lots of mimosas and OJ flowed as well. 

This roomful of men were watching the Lakers lose.  But they were well fed!  That's my dad, brother, three nephews and future son in law.  At the table are two of my sisters in law, not watching the game :).

On my design floor is this month's pick for the UFO Challenge, #9.  I am determined to get this one finished so need to get a move on! 
 Nicole of Sister's Choice Quilts made 68 of these blocks from this pattern and I was the lucky winner of them when she had a giveaway a year and a half ago. 

Pattern is Fall Frolic by Evelyn Sloppy.  I love the diagonal lines of the design, and red and green is my favorite color combo so I will enjoy playing with these pretty blocks.

It will be a challenge to lay it all out and get the distribution of the blocks even.  Nicole made a few extra blocks 7x9 layout.  It will make a nice sized throw at 56 x 72.  I'm raring to get them sewn!

How fun to receive completed blocks and all you have to do is play with the layout :)
