Design Wall Monday, April 2, 2012

Today starts out with sewing rows together on my third block of Jo's Country Junction's Quilt Square Quilt Along.  I've got the piecing done and like the addition of the blue, teal and red.  I've also brought in more of the green that was in the second block.  Next to decide is what borders I should use.  I'm thinking to stay with browns.  Any ideas on this?  There are six other blocks to make in this quilt along.  I will be putting all these blocks together into a sampler when its done.  These blocks are designed by Lori Smith in her Quilt Squares #1 pattern. 

I'm participating in Judy's 2012 UFO Challenge with Patchwork Times.  #10 was selected for April.  For me it happens to be Indigo, one of her FREE designs that you can get on her website.  I haven't spent time yet figuring out what fabrics I'll use.  Hopefully I'll have enough of what I need already and be able to use up more of my stash :)!

Finally I spent much of the day continuing work on HSTs for Autumn Rush, Myra Mayh's design.  I've been spinning the seams too!  I still have a stack of pink HSTs to sew.  The grays and turquoise HSTs are finished.  Next it will be ironing and squaring up with my trusty Bloc-Loc square up ruler.

No progress on Klunky Korners since yesterday.  It is all still on my design wall held up by blue painters tape...  Find time to see other quilters' projects at Patchwork Times.  Have a wonderful first week of April.

That quilt square is another beauty! (Makes me want to dig out my Lori Smith patterns.) I think sticking with your browns for the border will give some unity to the blocks that will be nice when they all come together.
That is another nice pattern from Judy. I need to look into her free patterns--I have a couple of her books, but I haven't ventured into the free patterns she offers.
I'm interested to see Autumn Rush take shape as more blocks get made.

Yes Sandi, I have definitely been hit by batiks!! I have on order from Batik Textiles and Moda both!!

Love all your work, especially love the star blocks.

Don't see much time to sew in the near term but hopefully in a couple of months.
