Design Wall Monday 11-30-15

Thanksgiving weekend was quiet, but I made some progress on Bluegrass Frogs.

113015   (966x1024)The pattern called for black as the frame for the focus fabric, but I used a variety of bright colors.  Also the sashing called for a random assortment of colors, but instead I wanted a black & white checkerboard.  However once I started sewing the sashing I realized that there would be places where two black or two white squares touched.  My solution was to use a bright color in those positions.  I like how bright & cheerful it makes the whole quilt appear.

I also found some time to work on the wool applique for Star of Yesterday.

113015A  (1024x683)

All the vines and flowers are appliqued on the top, so all that is left are the leaves.  The plan is to have this top finished by the end of December.  This is another pattern to which I made several color changes.  What fun it is to make a quilt your own!

    Oh what fun! Your quilt is going to be wonderful. I, too, love the checkerboard sashing and great idea about using the bright squares where the same colors would meet.
