Design Wall Monday 12-01-14

113014  (818x1024) The pattern is Beachside Bungalow from Scrap-Basket Beauties by Kim Brackett, but changed so that each ring is one fabric.  I wanted the interlocking circles to be prominent.  The strips along the bottom show the colors for those circles.

It is slow piecing to make sure that I sew all the correct pieces together, but I like how it looks.  There may be enough background material to cut the setting triangles, but I have no idea what I will use for the outer border.  It looks like there may be a trip to the quilt store in my future – oh darn!

Today I will start searching my stash to find the fabric for Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt Grand Illusion.

Check out all the quilting inspiration at Judy’s Design Wall Monday.

      Thank you. I have achieved the effect that I wanted with the interlocking rings and am pleased with the result.

    The rings remind me of the Olympic Rings. The quilt will be worth the time spent piecing the blocks.

    It’s fun to see everyone starting Grand Illusion.

      I hadn’t thought of the Olympic Rings, but you are right. The piecing is going faster in the second half of the quilt now that I have a system to keep the pieces organized. Thank you for stopping by.

      It is organized on the design wall, take down two pieces, sew them, return to design wall and take two more pieces. Slow and steady has kept the seam ripper at bay – mostly. Thank you for stopping by.

      Fabric and color choices can really change a quilt, can’t they? I like the emphasis on the rings even though it requires more concentration.
