What's on the design wall today?
On the previous post, I just put up some blocks I had so show my design wall. No plan to use the design. Here's a pic of just the yellow theme but no plans for it to be the one either. I don't have a lot of orphaned blocks from any one quilt and I seem to make all different themed and colored quilts. Many of my orphan blocks were made to try some idea. Now I do put whatever blocks and fabric left from a quilt into one plastic bag so could make more but I loved the idea of making all or most of a quilt from blocks already made. I made Autum Walk last winter based on one orphan block. Maybe that will be my way. Just now my #1 project is my space quilt. Here are two more. American ships sure have long names. I seem to be getting more uniform and less whonky with the names. I must be sure to let my child out when making them. I also decided to try couching the pale names with a matching color. See the "E" in the bottom pic. I like it. Enough to make the letters stand out but not so much so distract. These letters are very addicting and fun to make, even if they do take time.
