Design Wall Monday

It is Design Wall Monday check out the others over at Patchwork Times. I was planning to do about 40 DW Mondays this year but I think I am falling behind and can not make 40 weeks now. I think it is because I post on Saturday about my Rainbow Scrap Challenge and often do not get anything new done by Monday. Well On Saturday night I was going to sew more on my 3D blocks for the neutral scraps, but the big iron surface was messy. I decided not to start by cleaning. I wanted to work on blocks and not on rows or a whole quilt top. So out came the Hawaii fabric. I got five more blocks done. The five on the right are the new blocks.

I just love some of these mini prints that still have the Hawaii theme to them.  I am starting to think about how I will put my blocks together. Not sure. I am not a big fan of sashing but that might be what is needed. I thought white sashing but then I used some white already in two of the first blocks. Maybe I will replace that white with another colour and then the white could be used for sashing. What do you think?

Lots going on this week. The Edmonton Guild meeting is on Wednesday night and then on the weekend is a two day class with Pamela Allen. I was the one how asked that we bring her in to teach. I have lots of machine quilting to do this week too. I keep forgetting to ask my customers if I can post photos of their quilts so I can not show you. I think it is very important to ask them first before I post photos.

We got through the big sleep over party. Most of the kids did not look too tried when it was time to go home. I think they got about 6 hour sleep.


  1. The Hawaii blocks are fun! Love those mini prints- cute cute cute!

  2. Fun fabrics and such pretty colours!

  3. This one is going to be bright and colorful no matter what sashing you use - I like the white peeking through right now, but it would also look great with that green or a turquoise solid too.
