Design Wall Monday - October 24, 2011

At the retreat last week Julia refreshed my memory on how to make these blocks (had only one complete at the time) so I completed the other 8 last week. Takes a lot of time with having to make up all the strip sets. Here they all are ready to trim and sew together.


I liked the look and the ruler I used for these but figured I wouldn't want to do anymore of them for awhile untill I found a stripe Christmas fabric in my stash and quickly made up these blocks for a table runner


I liked the look so much last night I made up another set of blocks, trimmed them up and complete two table runner tops.

Lastly and not design wall or sewing related at all but this is Homecoming week at my daughter's high school and today is wacky tacky day. I think she definitely looks way wacky!!!


Mandy's last high school homecoming week, hope she enjoys it all!!!

Loved both the orginal and the Christmas print versions. What ruler did you use?

The kaleidocopes are great--I especially like the cool blue/violet colorway. And Mandy's outfit is both whacky and tacky--what fun!

I really like how your strip pieced quilt is turning out. What a great idea to use the striped fabric. I have a few christmas prints similar to that. After the wedding is over I think I'll try some of those.

These look so cool -- I like the effect in the runner. Was it from a pattern? And I'd like to know which ruler you used, too! Your daughter is darling -- looks like she's prepped for fun! :)

How cook to be able to find a great stripe fabric to make those blocks. But the blue/teal ones really look nice, too. And, yes, she looks whacky!

What fun blocks. Love the colors. Your daughter looks like she's having fun already.

Both sets of blocks are very pretty, but I like the Christmas table runner best.

Hum, you inspire me to pull out my ruler. Your blocks and table runners look great. Daughter is a beauty even if she is doing wacky dress!
