Design Wall Monday--June 18, 2012

On my design floor today are the three blocks for the June UFO pick, which I'm glad to say is well on its way to getting completed this month, yay!

I really like how the O block in the center feels curvy even though there are only straight seams.  The blocks will finish at 20 inches so I'm considering just putting on a pink binding and not doing any borders, since I want to use this as a tablerunner and 20 inches is kinda wide already.  Or maybe a narrow pink border and a cream binding?  Need help here!  See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times

Oh, so pretty! Love all three blocks!

I love them and I probably would put a thin little sashing/border on. However, that said they look very pretty together. I can't wait to see what you decide to do!!

Sometimes my decision to use sashing or not is based on if I think the binding would obscure too many of my points without a sashing. : )
I really like this block design--unique and classy!

Oh, you're so close to the finish. That is always exciting. I think I might just go straight to the binding. The blocks look so nice without sashing that I don't think they need it on the outer edge either.

As you don't need it any bigger, and your blocks don't run together, with the dramatic curvy center block separating the other two, I don't think you need sashing.
Just a binding, and it looks like you're done. These are real WOW blocks.

I think just a pink binding would be perfect!

It is lovely..... Is it a printed pattern or did you invent it yourself?

Candace said...

Your blocks really pop, Annie! I think a pink binding is all you need for a fantastic table runner!
Cheers!

What great colors and a wonderful table runner. I think the pink binding will finish that off beautifully!! That O block realy is nice. Love the whole circle thing going on. With a beautiful vase of pretty pink flowers, just heaven. Pure heaven :)

Very cool! I love when you can get a curved look with straight lines.

What awesome blocks!!

Sarah said...

I would just go for the binding. I was going to say a flange would be pretty but it would obscure your points so never mind.

Kate said...

Very pretty. I really like the "O" block!

I don't think those pretty blocks need a border. Besides a cream border is sure to show dirt faster than pink.
