Design Wall Monday – September 27, 2010

Here is what is on my design wall today.

These are the Saturday Sampler blocks from Tiny Stitches for the program that ends in December.  I didn’t make the blocks but am putting it together for the shop to use as a sample.  I did make the two red sawtooth stars being used for setting squares.  I need to make four more of them to fill out the center of the quilt. 

I am not sure the blocks are in the right place yet – I am just starting to move them around so that the busy backgrounds and the plainer backgrounds are spread somewhat evenly throughout the quilt.  There will be a darker red used for the setting triangles, a striped inner border and a paisley border.  Should be a nice quilt when finished.

By the way – I neglected to mention that I got the inspiration for the fortune cookies from Moda Bake Shop.  I did things a little different but definitely need to give credit to this post.  Thank you Moda and Megan from Brassy Apple.

  1. I love the fortune cookies. And there is that two color red quilt again. Love it!

  2. Cute, and it has a nice holiday feel to it. How fun are the fortune cookies!

  3. How fortunate for those that participated in this block program! I'm sure it will look great when you've finished it.

  4. Your decision to put a darker red in the setting triangles worked out great. I'll be anxious to see how the stripe you've got planned works.

  5. Lovely quilt! Nice design wall too - the grid will really help lay the blocks on perfectly. I keep having to adjust the blocks I put on my plain design wall to get them in decently horizontal rows. :)


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
