Design Wall Monday, January 7, 2013
So much going on...where to start? First I've got Kwitcherbitchin. I've got a mess on my sewing table for certain. I've been taking the 12 x 12 blocks down off the design wall much of the day. Instead of putting a solid piece border on my quilt I will be doing piano keys. I'm pretty certain that the green dot will be the inner border and positive that I'll be using dark strings for the piano keys. I've pulled the "keys" out and they are in the basket waiting for me.
Don't you think the green dot will be better than the green/black print? As much as I like it...I think it is a bit too busy. The green will probably highlight the dark strings more to my liking. I'm not 100% decided yet; more on this later during the week.
Next up is Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street. I've decided to add a purple inner border and again changing it up a bit to include a pieced border. I'm going to duplicate the gray and white/black 4-patches along with the green setting triangles. I'm still playing around with how the corners will come together. Perhaps I'll put another block from Step 7 in the corner. I don't know if you picked up my quilts name from a previous post or not; Janet helped out on this one Kushy Kourt.
I've got a bunch of 4-patches to make...
There's sewing tonight! See what others are doing today at Patchwork Times. Have a wonderful week.
