Design Wall Monday, November 22, 2010

Here's what's on my design wall today as we start our week.

2009 Kruisin Kwilt Project
This is the first three of 12 blocks that will be this quilt project.  All from my stash, yippee!  There are a total of 12 star themed blocks designs for the top.  There will be six blocks using the yard stick novelty fabric with this white with blue and green boomerang design background and six blocks using a chocolate brown with a light blue background.  You know how stash quilts work--improvise with what you've got!  I'll have enough of the yard stick novelty fabric to add a twist and turn to the chocolate brown/light blue blocks and enough of the chocolate brown to add a twist and turn to the yard stick blocks--well I'm hoping to have enough.  If not there will be more improvising.

I'm through Clue #1 with Kotton.  It was decided that both Kerry and I will make the full quilt project instead of splitting one.  We love the way the fabrics are going together and it will help reduce our stash to make them bigger.  Waiting for Clue #2's release on Friday.  Clue #1 went together fast.  Clue #2 may not be quite as fast, but then maybe Bonnie will give us a break since we did so much work in the kitchen for our Thanksgiving Holiday meal.

Wow, you have really been busy. Blocks on your design wall are great. You will have another nice quilt. You are really a Bonnie Hunter follower. She will keep you busy until the mystery is solved.

I have never done a mystery quilt but I bet you and your friend will really have a blast with it.

Pretty combo! Love the yardstick fabric and hope you have enough of it.

I pulled fabrics for Bonnie's mystery but resisted jumping in with the sewing until the second clue, as I need more pinks and won't shop until after the holiday.
