Design Wall Monday 07-31-17

Look at this – it is almost time for a new quilting to-do-list.

And here is the last item on the list – one blue Wild Child block with 39 more to make.

My plan is to sew the blue HST together while I make a final decision on the neutral background blocks.  The choice is scrappy neutral or one fabric neutral.

The next and final borders on Pocket Full of Posies has been added.

Next up is adding a vine and flowers to the top and bottom borders.  There will be one flower in the center of each vine with two smaller flowers at each end.  It looks totally different than the original pattern, but I am happy with it.

This weekend I felt the need for piecing, so some progress was made on the Honey Bee quilt.

All of the 9 patches have been made and just over half of the patches have been framed.  The petals will take some time to be appliqued in place, but I like the look of every other block giving the Honey Bee blocks room to breathe.  My thoughts at the moment are no borders and binding with a colorful stripe.  We will see what happens when I need to make a final decision.

      Thank you. This is a block that has been on my to-do list for several years. I think that it is going to make a great baby quilt.

  2. Love anything with 9 patches! Had a lot of fun paging through your posts.

      Nine patches are a favorite of mine as well. They are easy to make while being very versatile. Thank you for stopping by.
