Design Wall Monday--Cross Reference

On my design floor is the project of the moment, a couch quilt for son Nick, Cross Reference (APQ mag April 2017).  As predicted, the simple B blocks sewed up quick yesterday and I laid out all the blocks I've made so far. 

The rust prints are reading a bit red in this photo but I like their counterpoint to the blues.  I'm happy with the Prussian blue Kona solid I chose for the B blocks.  Another five blue print A blocks are needed for my setting.  There are three borders and all the setting triangles to cut and sew yet.  I'm hoping to have this top done by the end of the week.  Nick's response to the photo was that his girlfriend can't wait to use it on the couch!

See more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts.  Have a Happy 4th!

You have made great progress.
Rust and blue are always a winning combination, in my book.

The colorway and the design are great! (I can see this as a librarian quilt ("cross reference"). Hmmmm....)
