Design Wall Monday April 16, 2012


After getting the green crumbs sewed together into a flimsy I had a design wall open and waiting.  With way too many leaders and enders project in the works, choosing a stack of blocks ready to go was an easy task.  In the two inch block box I had a stack that had been sewn into Irish Chains.  I think there are enough in there for a quilt if I just make the alternate squares.  No movement on the bow-tie blocks.  I ran out of the cheddar fabric and need to find something for setting triangles. 

This was the top for the green crumbs though I forgot to get a picture after the borders were attached. 
I had a green and yellow print big enough for the back, but it was pastel.  Instead I pulled anything off of the shelf that was bright green or yellow.  It didn't take too long to get those puzzled together to make a back.  It is on the frame now waiting for me to have time to get to it.  Fortunately fabric is patient and won't go bad before I find the time to sew again.

Your design wall looks really good - love them both. One day I will make my cheddar bow ties - I already have the fabric and thankfully, like you said it won't go bad waiting for me!

I'm also making a scrappy irish chain as a leader/ender! I haven't stopped to see how many I have done - guess I'd better check huh? :*) Yours just sparkles. I just love scrappy quilts!!!

The green and yellow quilt turned out well and the back is fun. Now I am in love with the Irish Chain quilt top - I want one!!

The joy of being organized - three projects almost finished! Way to go! I really like the green crumb quilt. Even though I know I could do the blocks in one color I never stop to think of it that way - it looks great.
