It's the Wall with Blocks

My design wall for this stormy Monday in July is full of projects.  On the left are my 2011 BOM blocks -- minus the ones I took to the group last Thursday -- they're pictured below with the everybody else's blocks.  

At the top is the Surface Design Round Robin piece that I'm thinking about.

On the right is an attempt at dyeing a one-color gradation.

And in the middle is my piece for "1000 Words" -- look closely to see the progress on that.

These are the NY Beauties from Thursday's meeting.  Mine aren't sewn together because I'm going to use them in the corners of the quilt.  I really love the layout of the one in the upper right corner -- she didn't want all that brown in the center, so she flipped them around.  I love this one!

In the lower left corner is a block from someone new to the group -- she's catching up.

And these are the fan blocks.  Of course, mine is the eye-popping bright one in the upper left corner.  I fussy cut the suns in the base of the fans and the center blade of the fan is a cat fussy cut from the same fabric.

Sorry about the fuzzy photo -- I wish I had a better camera.  Oh sure, blame it on the camera....

This is a sneak preview of another thing I'm working on.  I'll have more about this in the coming weeks.

I love a mystery - look forward to seeing how you progress with the applique piece. Your NYB are awesome - heck all of the photos on this post are fab.
