Design Wall Monday, January 3, 2011
Today I have on my design wall the first few blocks of Bonnie Hunter's current mystery Roll Roll, Cotton Boll (there's a link on the button at the right). Block 1 is on the right; Block 2 is on the left. Block 1 is a combination of many of the clues and Block 2 is ONLY Clue 3. There is still a section from Clue 6 where a home hasn't been revealed...wonder if it is part of the borders? Only one more clue to be released this Friday! I've got a lot on my table to sew to be ready. Oh did I mention my quilt's name? I'm calling it Kotton.
Today I will be discussing with my quilting sisters just what fabrics to try first in my Lily Block (UFO #6) of Kourageous. There will be four flower fabrics, two leaf/stem fabrics and one of the two backgrounds to use in the block. The primary flower fabric will be from the "jungle"; that is one of the animal skin prints. The other three fabrics will be from the "solids". I'm really liking the first fabric on the left and the more electric greens. Opinions and suggestions always welcome.
Hope you have something fun going on in your sewing room. Other Design Walls can be found through Patchwork Times (there's a link on the button at the right).
