Changes to the Design Wall

I took down the green/blue quilt (OK -- it fell down) and put up the stuff from the 2011 BOM group.  I'm working on a tutorial for the lemoyne star blocks because I'll be teaching them next month.  The other blocks are from the book, but they haven't been demoed by anyone yet.  I just made them because they looked like fun.

And here is a last picture of the green/blue quilt for a while as it awaits further cogitation about the next set of borders.  It has grown to about 80 inches and is tacked up on the right side where it extends beyond the design wall.  That's my only studio window up at the top right.  I thought the window well was clean, but there are more spiderwebs growing in there since the last uncharacteristic flurry of cleanliness.  Sheesh.

To see what other people have going on their design walls, check out Judy's blog here.

Karen -- I am so impressed with your quilts. Your green blue quilt is coming along beautifully. I quit making various blocks cause I got tired of boring settings. You sure blasted through boring with this one! And, yep, think time is always helpful. B also a native southern californian but not living there.

Fabulous blocks everywhere you look!

Great BOM blocks. I love the bright colours with the black background. I'm seeing something like an Ohio star set into the setting triangle spaces around the blue/green quilt.

While hopping this morning to see Design Walls off of Judy's blog, and I read 'Lemoyne' star...I just had to share with you my use of one in a new design just finished. http://kissedquilts.blogspot.com/ it is the 'flutterbright-what a delight' blog entry. I'll be teaching this class sometime this spring. I paper pieced the 4 corners of the center medallion.

Love the black and brights. It is one of my favorite combinations.

Nice work. What will you do with the BOM blocks? Will they make it into a quilt too?

Jo said...

Your bright colors look wonderful on the black.
