In a somewhat unprecedented move, I’ve actually already started fooling around with one of the projects I found in my great clean out yesterday. This is one of the Punctuation charm packs, laid out to very approximately mimic the Building Blocks pattern that I’ve selected.
I don’t know if I will use that pattern exactly, as the charm pack had a TON of thin stripes in each color way and they look repetitive when laid out right next to one another. The extra blocks that are stacked outside of the boxes I am thinking of sewing up into hour glass blocks and using as cornerstones for an outer border. We shall see. It might be a bit before I get a chance to actually sew this up; my space is still in a bit of a whirlwind from my “tidying” the other day.
This image is the final — a bit more balance and flow in the colors around the quilt. Isn’t it funny how just one block can look out of place, but when you go to correct it, you end up having to move quite a few blocks just to get that one spot right!?
I am linking up today with Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday — I’m kind of excited — it’s my first time actually having a real design wall! :)
