Design Wall Monday 12/21/09

Didn’t get a lot of sewing time this week.  Finished all the four patches and if you remember from last week, there was one really dark blue one that was much darker than everything else so I replaced it.  Started adding some of the black and white triangles to complete the secondary design.  Photo was taken with cell phone so . . sorry if it’s kinda blurry.


Anyone else still finding time to quilt this close to Christmas?  If so, please share what’s on your design wall!

    second week that I can’t show what’s on the wall. My DD and SIL call it secrets for Christmas. But there isn’t really anything on there. Just a Christmas Panel. You could just make the pinwheel blocks and alternate them with the 4 patches too. Cute idea as always.

    Interesting how you are piecing the blocks. I would have made the black and white as one block from HSTs and set on point with the four patch. I’ll have to try your method.

    I’ve posted a link to my ‘inspiration’ wall … photos around it show my sewing room in its glorious disarray.

    I needed to pull my desk out so I could extend my leaf to support my son’s quilt (87 x 87) as I quilted it on my home machine. So, everything got moved/piled/shoved …. ah, what a glorious mess.
