Design Wall Monday--Jan 16, 2012
On my design surface this Martin Luther King, Jr Day are the same two projects from last week, both of which are coming along well. Bricks and Stepping Stones parts are all complete and a few of the blocks assembled. I enjoyed all the piecing and pressing as I worked in batches.
112 bricks with attached 4-patch stones were sewn. This is a Bonnie Hunter (Quiltsville.com) free pattern.
So far, I'm liking the colors very much. The dark brown fabric second from the top left reads too dark and messes up the contrast with the black and white so I'm not going to use it. I only made the one tester brick so am not short of blocks by losing it. Spoke to the intended recipient today, my younger brother Ted, and told him I was working on his quilt. So now that news is out and I'm definitely committed!
The Pink Lemonade quiltalong finish has been posted and while I have picked out the fabric for the four corner blocks (not shown), I am not feeling the love for this yellow calico with these CW prints and will have to look for something else at my local stores. Poor me! See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
