I'm working on my design wall today trying to layout the gift quilt I mentioned earlier. Remember these fabrics? I have them pressed and ready to strip piece the alternate block. I love using my portable clothes dryer to arrange my strips when making lots of sets. It keeps them organized and wrinkle free. It's especially pretty when you are doing a log cabin-type quilt with lots of colors for each block.
I got a bunch of the strips sewn and blocks cut and up on my wall. I'm not real happy with the way it looks, though. I love that floral with the pink cosmos flowers, but it looks almost too dark with the other colors. I may have to re-think this choice. Darn, and I wanted this to be a quick and easy project. Back to the drawing table.
While I'm redrawing take a look at other design walls over at Judy's.
