A Grateful Heart – Day 24

Hello all.  Well here it is… the second look at the design wall.

Design Wall - Per Pattern

This shows all the blocks as per the pattern.  You will note the small, ugly block with the stripes on the bottom row.  I will probably be re-doing that.  In my attempt to use bolder colors, I seem to have taken a step too far!  I really thought stripes were a good idea at the time, but now that I see the block completed, not so much.

After I put all the blocks up, I started playing around with placement based on color and ended up with this picture:

Design Wall - Redesigned

There are some things I like about moving some of these blocks and some things that don’t work as well.  It was a lot of fun moving them around, though!  What I’ve decided to do is just to finish the remaining blocks (I only have 3 left plus a few of the filler blocks.), and let Sarah have some fun moving them around herself when she comes home on Sunday.  I think she might really enjoy designing her own quilt!

Well, I hope you are enjoying the sneak preview.  Tomorrow is the schoolhouse block.  Until then,
