What's On My Design Wall? - 7/27
A couple of weeks ago I pulled out my birthday blocks with the intention of making star blocks. Then technology reigned havoc, and there was no quilting going on. Then I started cleaning up and hung the table runner on the wall, as much to get it out of the way as to work on the applique. (There's that "A" word).
Finally this past week I had to start piecing or go crazy, so I've been working on my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks. These are the last three I've finished. To jump start my piecing, as well as my SBS, I've joined a Blue and Brown swap on the SBS list.
Due to the number of blocks in the quilt, this swap is different than others I've joined in the past. We make a set of 5 blocks to swap and can make up to 5 sets of blocks, each set having different focus fabric. I picked 10 blocks I'd be happy to make and started 'testing' them in the 30's reproduction fabric for my quilt. I got my list last night and Ladies' Aid Album (bottom block) is one of my swap blocks, and it this weeks BOW.
