Design Wall Monday, January 12, 2015

 I don't have enough Design Wall to put all of Kool Krystals up!  The pieces to finish the bottom are on the right.  All units are sewn together; now it's time to assemble the top.  At first I thought I didn't like the look of the sashing.  After making more units and putting them on the wall, my mind was changed.  
The design by Bonnie Hunter (Scrap Crystals) calls for an outer solid border.  Still not sure I will add it to my project.  Once I have it all assembled I will audition using the blue in the sashing for the binding and forego the outer border.


I took a little time on Sunday to pull red-orange batiks and neutrals for a workshop I'll be taking at Road to California in a couple of weeks.  The workshop will be led by Donna Lynn Thomas called Batik Feathers.  The supply list calls for cream (instead of neutrals), dark and medium batiks.  I may try to find something cream between now and then.  I've used these neutrals for several other projects and to be honest I'm getting a little border with them.

Tonight hopefully the Oregon Ducks will pull off a win.  Friends are coming over for the game and dinner.  Tuesday night there is Sunshine Quilt Guild.  I won't be getting back to the sewing room until Wednesday...  See what is going on in other sewing rooms around the globe through the links at Patchwork Times.

Enjoy your week.

Did you finish up the sashing overnight? I swear I was just commenting on a post where you were working on that. : )
Batik feathers sound intriguing.

The Kool Krystals is looking great, and I really like the sashing you chose. And I love the fabric for the class. I can't wait to see what it looks like!
