Design Wall Monday 09-05-16

I finished the fourth sunflower block yesterday.

090516 (1024x470)

The first block is all embroidery, the second is 1/3 embroidery & 2/3 bias tape, the third is 1/3 stain glass & 2/3 bias tape and the fourth is all stain glass.  The blocks turned out just the way that I had envisioned – so happy when that happens!

My initial idea was to place the blocks with an Attic Windows layout.  I auditioned green and brown fabric, but once I saw them on the wall I knew that wouldn’t work.

Right now Plan B is to frame each block with a thin black border then add sashing.  The border will be a bit tricky since I only have one yard – why didn’t I buy more?  Oh well, I will just have to come up with an interesting design detail to make it all work.

Happy Labor Day,

    Looks interesting. Size?

      I am not sure what size it will be. The blocks will be trimmed to 11 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ – maybe 20″ long and 60″ wide? I am just making it up as I go along.
