Design Wall Monday – June 21, 2010

Ahhh . . something on my design wall!  I’ll talk more about these blocks tomorrow but for now, here they are:

Aren’t they bright and cheerful?  I’m not sure what to do with them.  There are 20 of them.  I was going to set them with sashing, 4 x 5, but then I thought about adding a 1-1/2″ frame around them and setting them 3 x 4.  If I made 4 more, I’d have enough for 2 donation size quilts . . something like this:

I like it!

What’s on your design wall?

    I thought I had enough projects going – I love these bright stars!! I would make 4 more to make 2 donation quilts. Plan B, I would keep them for myself! Have a great Monday:)

    Judy, Why don’t you set them on point with one of those fun print fabrics as the setting squares? I remember you showed some fabric a while back that was in your stash that would work great.

    Oh those are wonderful Judy! I dont’ know how big they are, but that would make a fabulous toddler quilt.. or maybe two?

    I have a “repeat” Design wall this week after attending my WASIQ Retreat with my ‘online friends’. I included a couple pictures of us before we all left. I had a productive week-end and worked on all but one of my projects I took with me to play with.
    I have a ‘secret’ challenge project that is due in JULY at our Local Guild that was fun to play with on my no-stitch Sunday.

    I enjoy Design Wall Mondays. Now I always think about what I’ll post for DWM and it helps me focus…….most of the time 🙂 I love the stars!

    Still nothing on my wall, but lots of fabric waiting to be washed. Every stash needs a few new neighbours from time to time!

    The bright colors are so pretty. I think these would be great for charity quilts because they are so cheerful. Vey nice, Judy.
