Design Wall Monday--March 2, 2015

On my design floor is a project that's been in the works for several months, but hasn't seen much progress until recently.  This is a baby quilt from the Scout pattern by CluckCluckSew that my daughter asked me to make for a friend of hers.  We chose all the fabrics together at Superbuzzy.

A couple of weeks ago I had managed to get the sections all sewn, sliced on the diagonal and sorted into four rows, and last week got 3 of the 4 the rows sewn for one side of the design.  I laid them out yesterday morning and got all the remaining rows assembled.

Here they are laid out with the spacer strips before trimming to length...

 ...and with the black spacer strip joining the two mirror halves of the rows (I haven't cut the white spacer strips to length yet).  Although it differs from the pattern, DD Elaine requested the center to be floating, so I will add white strips to the top and bottom.  Then we will pick out backing and binding. 


The colors are a little off here--what is looking brownish is actually a deep olive green, and the yellow sections are actually a Cotton and Steel chartreuse with silver print.  Lots of great modern prints in this one.

A fun design. Do the bias edges give you any trouble as you sew the long sides together? Just reminds me of the pioneer braid pattern and I know that was an issue for me on that one.

Interesting design and colors, not a typical baby quilt. I really like it...looks like you would really have to pay attention to the placement of the strips on both sides of the arrow. Gotta go look again (every time I do I like it more!)

Very striking design and fabric choices. This looks like a fun project.

Beautifully done. Lovely colors and an interesting pattern. Definitely a one of a kind baby quilt.

Fun and I always love when someone puts their own personal style into a project.
