Design Wall Monday--Jan 2, 2012

On my Design surface today is a new project that has been awaiting its turn in the queue since the summer.  I love the smell of a new quilt waiting to be born....
Bricks and Stepping Stones is a Bonnie Hunter design (quiltville.com).  Hers is totally scrappy and mine is controlled scrappy.  This is a quilt for my last remaining sibling still quiltless.  He likes coffee so I chose a few themed fabrics and lots of my favorite small geometrics and some textured solids.  I decided to make it easier on myself by using only one black and one white.  It is hard to find a good, dark black, isn't it?  See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.

What fun! I love how you differentiate between totally and controlled scrappy. LOL! Have fun with this -- it will be fun to watch your project "unfold"! :)

It's always exciting to start a new project. Yours looks like fun. I love Bonnie's instructions. I have a bunch printed out like the one you have there. Happy New Year, Annie.

Yes...good black fabrics are hard to find. This will be a wonderful quilt...what's that I smell?? Coffee brewing? Or a quilt being born??!

LOVE the colours in those fabrics. I really dislike working in black because it picks up every piece of fluff within a 10 mile radius of my house....

Love Bonnie Hunter's stuff - I've printed out this one too but haven't gotten to it yet. Your fabric choices are great - this will be a wonderful quilt!

Annie, that pattern is one I've loved and keeping remembering I'd like to make. **sigh** there are lots I'd like to make, lol. I love the fabrics you've selected :)

Love the colors that you've picked for this one. I agree, it is really hard to find a good dark black. I have one and I wish I'd bought more of it!

I have made this pattern from Bonnie's website twice. It goes together so easily and is so striking! I'm sure yours will turn out great, too!
