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