Design Wall 05-13-13

Have you seen this book?

051313    (1024x907)It has 8 challenges where the authors (Sharyn Craig and Pamela Mostek) suggest a color and a block then show the quilts that were made.  The first challenge was the rail fence block and a specific purple fabric.  I substituted the green fabric shown above, then started looking at rail fence blocks.

It took me over three weeks to decide on a layout and block – there are so many that looked interesting and fun to sew.

The winner is –

051313A   (1024x809)This will be a 4 block x 5 block layout.  Each block is 9″ square finished, so this will end up approximately 36″ x 45″.

I wanted the green fabric to be in the middle of the quilt, so that meant starting with the orange blocks.  Right now the color changes look too abrupt to me, but I won’t make any changes until all the blocks have been made.

Check out what everyone else is working on at Patchwork Times.

  1. I like it – I don’t think it’s too abrupt. Well, they are, but it looks great cause you have some yellow in the orange and the yellow goes so nicely into the green. Very pretty

      Thank you for your comments. The only decision I have made is to finish all the blocks before making another decision.
