Oh my! Monday again already?! This Design Wall Monday thing is good for keeping me on task. Time just gets away from me.
I guess I had a tolerable excuse this week since I was helping to hang my quilt guild's quilt show. Then we had our opening reception Saturday night. The show will be up until March 2, so check it out if you are in the Stone Mountain GA area. We are in Art Station. Here is a link you can look at for more information: http://www.artstation.org/ There are also 2 other art exhibits in the same building, plus other galleries close by, not to mention fun places to eat. There is also a theater. There will be 2 different plays happening during the course of our show. We are going to speak at their February 18th lunch time program, and I plan to have guild members there doing demonstrations in tandem with the plays.
But nevertheless...I did get some sewing done. I finished the quilt top I had on my design wall last week. It is very unusual for me to get a entire quilt top done in a week; but here it is:
It no doubt helped that it was a lap quilt.
Then, I pressed all of the stack-n-whack blocks I have using for leaders and enders for the last year. I tried them up on the design wall.
I do like the individual blocks; but they just don't look like anything all together like this. So, I tried separating them. Also, I took this photo at night, and it looks a bit yellow.
I like this much better with light, negative space around them. I was thinking of maybe 2 different light batiks, or small prints alternating, with maybe some sashing-maybe not. I also thought about auditioning some dark red or dark khaki with it-but I don't know. I do think it helps to have something light around the blocks.
I do like the movement in these blocks. I am sure I will think of something to do with them, eventually.
It looks like I have got some playing to do. Fortunately, I have a quilt retreat to look forward to in a couple of weeks.
My giveaway last week was won by annieo. She chose to receive my Indian Summer pattern, so I will be getting that out to her today. Thanks to everyone who tried.
