Design Wall Monday--June 4, 2012

On my design table today is the UFO Challenge pick of the month, #12. That correlates on my list to yet another 9 patch quilt from that wonderful swap of Julie's. This time it's the pink and brown patches that are getting their turn.


Three blocks will make a nice table runner from this pattern, which is X's and O's from the June 2011 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine.   All the blocks are made from the same template for the triangle-rectangle, just different colorways.  A tri-rec ruler would come in handy just now, wouldn't it?  I'll make two X's and one O for my project, and at least two borders.  I haven't quite worked that all out yet.

These browns were purchased at the International Quilt Festival in Cinci, but I don't know if they are going to work.  I didn't have the pattern with me and after getting home and seeing the quilt again, these may have too much of a strong print.  Quilt-ITIS will ensue (I'll Try It & See).  More design walls are on Judy's Patchwork Times, go take a look at all the great things people are making!

Very cool looking blocks, Annie. That will be a great table runner. I love pink and brown and have a container full of them that I have collected over the last few years. Now I need to make something with them!

I love the colours and patterns on all these fabrics. It's going to be a stunner when it's done.

As much as I love brights I keep falling in love with pinks and chocolates all over again every time I see them.

Love the colors. It's going to be a very nice table runner. Pink and brown are one of those color combos that's on my bucket list.
