Design Wall Monday--see more design walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
There has been a lot of time with needle and thread the last few days. I did a lot of cutting before getting to some sewing. Trying to empty baggies and bins of projects is a neverending challenge in my sewing room. I started with a baggie of leftover black and white pieces from the baby quilt I made for middle grandson Hunter, who is now 6 years old! I wanted to use them as leader-enders.
The first pink solid I pulled from stash had to be augmented by a darker shade, and just for fun I threw in the print for the last two blocks.
The block is from the quilt Adam's Rib by Fons and Porter.
The first Memory Lane block laid out. I love this clever design!
And first block finished under Mini's watchful eye. These are big blocks, 16 inches finished, so will make a big quilt fast. I had fun picking and choosing fabrics for each from the 20 fat quarters required; I used the Oh My Darling fat quarter collection I bought some years back from Connecting Threads.
Playing with color and print is my favorite pastime. Each block has 5 fabrics in different arrangements so I am doing my best to mix color, scale and prints.
The quilt is in this book which was published in 2006--I picked it up several years ago at a guild sale. Lots more piecing for me to do, my favorite part of quilting :)
