Design Wall Monday

My design wall has not changed much for a few weeks, so I haven't shown it to you.  Instead I'm getting started on a new quilt for a relative, and have picked her favorite colors. Can you guess what they are?

While I was at a quilt show in historical Hannibal, MO this week (you know the city where Tom Sawyer painted the picket fence), well would you believe there was a vendor with 3 yard cuts of 108" wide backs --and this one just jumped into my hands.  Don't you think it is perfect for the back of this quilt.  Now I won't have to worry about piecing a back and maybe can get this finished before her graduation party.

By next week's design wall I will have some of these blocks on my design wall for sure.  Who knows, maybe even the whole top!  Ha ha. I know you are laughing at that remark, but it "could" happen.  In the meantime, stop by Judy's to see what others have been up to this past week.
