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).

I tried to send a reply, but your e-mail bounced for 72 hours. Are you sure it's ymail.com instead of gmail.com? Was going to send you some buttons... lol

Great new project and congratulations on keeping up with the RRCB mystery. This was a fun mystery as it remained a mystern until now. LOL

Looking good! the strings block is two clues though, the one that told us how to make the original, and the clue we just had that tells us how to split and reassemble it.
