Design Wall Monday 06-27-16

As a reward for getting the Lincoln blocks completed, I started a new quilt project last Thursday.  It is Bonnie Hunter’s pattern Garden Party that was in the May/June 15 issue of Quiltmaker magazine – with a few changes.  I like rectangle quilts, so the first thing that I did was add one row and remove one column of blocks.  Also I wanted to make a rainbow quilt, so I spent some time with graph paper & crayons to make myself a map.

These blocks are fun to sew and I am enjoying how bright & colorful it is looking.

    Your blocks are beautiful. I love the red/orange/yellow range of fabrics you’re using.

      Thank you. My plan is to have the inner color become the outer color in the next round. So the first block is yellow inside – orange outside and the next round is orange inside – red outside, then red inside – purple outside. The next round will be purple inside – blue outside followed by blue inside – green outside. The top will finish up with one row top and bottom of green inside – yellow outside. I am having so much fun piecing this quilt.
