Design Wall Monday--March 4, 2013

There's something new, something ongoing, and a win on my design surface today.

Something new is playing with a leftover St. Patrick's Day block I made a few years ago (I think this was from Quilter's Cache).  I'm pondering turning it into a banner like the ones I showed in my previous post.  If I do that, I need to build it out to approximately 12 x 21.  It's a puzzle to play with :)

Something ongoing is the Greenpiece BOM project on my Getting it Done list.  I've prepped two more wool applique blocks.

The pear needs only its leaf stitched down.  I've started with the simpler applique blocks but am thinking I should mix in a few harder ones soon. 

Something I won is this collection of great background fat quarters.  Lori of Humble Quilts had a 4th blogaversary giveaway and mine was one of the lucky names picked!  Lori and I started blogging the same month so we are practically twins, right?  :)  Backgrounds are hard for me to pick out so I am most grateful for this grouping.  The acorn one is unique and eye-catching, isn't it?

Wait a second what is that beautiful bird did I miss something? Love your applique blocks so far they look hard enough to me!

I really like your St. Patrick block. And I really love the fabric you won. Those acorns are great.

Awwww..I love that little pear - so whimsical!

I have gotten into wool applique lately. Isn't it fun? Your little pear is too cute.

I remember that Shamrock block. Seems like I was going to try and make one for this year. That didn't happen. Thanks for reminding me. I think the banner sounds like a great idea.
I think you are doing a great job on the wool applique.
And what a lovely win from Lori--your almost twin. : )

I love working with wool. I agree that you should mix in some hard blocks. I made Winter Wonderland which is embroidered and I made the mistake of doing the small blocks first - never again. The last large block took approximately forever.

Nice scrappy shamrock block and I like the wool applique too. Have fun with the pretties you won from Lori!

Kate said...

The wool applique blocks are beautiful, I especially like the bird. Congrats on your win.

My eye immediately went to the acorn fabric among those background pieces, those are nice stash builders; congrats on your win. I love your pieced shamrock and your wool applique is warm and wonderful... I need to get going on some of that myself; why am I hoarding wool and not using it? ;)
