what's on the design wall

After a horrendous trip to the dentist this morning I took solice in a bit of sewing.
I have made up the 4 blocks for our BOM....we are playing around just a little with the provided fabrics, but in all honesty, anything goes!!!   I do think the Kaffe fabrics all fit in nicely & blend with each other. And throwing in a few other fabrics seems to work just as well too, a little bit of Denise Schmidt here, a little bit of Jennifer Paganelli there, along with some Anna Maria Horner too!!!!
So - here we have a very different sort of sampler quilt slowly happening!  From the fabric choices, to the layout, and of course the actual blocks.   As Kathy @ MO says, there is certainly going to be lots of variety in this multi technique quilt!!!
I did find a few things essential - stick to 1/4 inch seams, pin all intersecting pieces, and once I had made the 1st block, chain piecing certainly was the way to go!!!  In the big scheme of things these blocks will be quite separate from each other, on point, & in four corners of the quilt later on down the track.
But for now.......this month's BOM .....done!!!!


  1. Ooh, I really like these blocks! Did you have to think hard about which fabrics to put together in one block?

  2. Well I just followed their lead & tried to work quickly without thinking too-o-o-o much!!! L


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts. Happy sewing!
