Design Wall Monday July23
I started this quilt some time last year and then put it away in two boxes. The design wall was empty so I got it out again. I really like building blocks but kind of dislike sewing the blocks into rows and making it large and unruly to handle. So in the box it went. I think is was last sept when I got all the blocks built. This is just the first four rows. I have five more rows in the other box. I got this quilt out because I would like a new quilt for our new bed and this one would be big enough.
I was very good to mark all the blocks with a piece of paper to show what block it was. I mark rows and columns with numbers and alphabets. It looks like it works well for me. I know I took many of the blocks to a guild UFO sewing day, so I needed to transport them. I used 12" papers and stacked the block parts.
The other five rows in the box. I have these plastic boxes I got at Michael's crafts that were sold for scrap book papers and pages. I love them for quilt blocks. They fit a 12 1/2" block so very nicely. This quilt has 72 blocks so I needed two boxes for it. If you want to see more about this quilt please check This out. I guess I need to get it done now.
