Design Wall Monday for June 18, 2012

On the design wall today, same project as last week but with a little progress. I’ve made a few more crosses, and added the next ‘round’ in some. Most of my time seemed to be spent cutting more hexagons.  A few hours were spent in the sewing room  folding fabrics that I pulled for this project and sorting them into piles of Used-may need to cut some more pieces, To Be Used, and Won’t Work for this Project. I can actually see my cutting board again!

I’m finding that there are a couple of crosses that I like quite well, there are a couple that I will take apart and restitch because the design doesn’t match/align well enough to suit me, and there are a few that I probably will not use at all. Clicking on the photo will enlarge for a closer look.

There are a lot of quilters sharing their work today over at Patchwork Times, take a look, you’ll be inspired!

Very pretty, I really like the blocks.

Are you going to make the full block, or just stop at this point? You know I'm doing this next!

That is going to be a BEAUTIFUL quilt, Gail. Hope you had a wonderful Father's Day. Sorry I interrupted it by calling you with my behind! :)

What a completely different take on using hexies. I really like what you are doing. You are fussy cutting, aren't you?

You're getting some great effects with fussy cutting/printing! It will be a beautiful quilt!
