Design Wall Monday, August 15, 2011
Happy Monday! Don't have anything on my design wall, door, or floor to share today...just a lot of PINK! I'm cutting for Bonnie Hunter's design Jamestown Landing. I suppose one can never have enough blue quilts, but my pink/red/burgundy stash is way out of control...time to use it. This one will also help the population control in my neutral stash using various strips of beige/white/ivory/
cream and anything else with just a touch of pink that might be hiding. It takes 2 7/8" pink and neutral squares (420 each color) that will be made into HSTs and strips of pink and neutral varying in size from 3/4" to 2" wide. The length of the neutrals up to 9". The pink also take varying sizes 1" to 2 1/2" wide to be cut down to 5". I'll be busy with the cutting for a little while...the three stacks on the right are what's to be done yet...yep I'll be busy for a little while.
This is Komfort Kove just back from Kerry's Quilting. It's a Quiltmaker pattern (July/August 2010) designed by Theresa Eisinger called Pinwheel Cove. I've got to get the binding on and the label. Think I'll choose a teal for the binding...there must be a 1/2 yard piece in my stash that will work.
