Design Wall Monday 3
It is the Third Design Wall Monday over at Patchwork Times this year Here. I have numbered my design wall Mondays to see if I can make about 40 this year. Even if I only have one little block to show you a hope to make my posts.
I got to work on my red hearts on Sunday. I made a post on Saturday about my Red scraps I have been working on part of the Rainbow Challenge 2012. Well I did OK in getting something more done. I got more red hearts and pink hearts completed and up on the design wall. I even sewed two rows together.
My four patch hearts started with 2 1/2" cut units (hearts finish to 4"). I have decided to use 2" cut sashing. I am working very hard to keep to using my smaller scraps first. I had to go looking for more red. I then found so much pink I just had to add it in. For the neutrals I had some 2 1/2" units and then had to cut a few more. I then had to go looking for small fat quarters or small yardage of older neutral fabric. There is no way I want to buy anything for this quilt. Just part of the challenge for myself.
My larger design wall still has Orca Bay Mystery on it and unchanged from last week. I guess I have slowed down on Orca Bay for the time being.
If you make a comment I know I am not just talking to myself. So Thanks
