Design Wall Monday

I know you are about to faint… 4 posts from me in the same week! Perhaps I am over my blogging block! Either that or else things are moving very quickly in my life right now… that’s the truth!

This is my first time to join in the “Design Wall Monday” hosted by Judy L. If you want to see some really neat things, go HERE and click on the links. They will take you on a tour of design walls of other quilters… very interesting!

And, if you are visiting here for the first time because you are following my link on Judy’s post, WELCOME, and come back again soon!

What is on my design wall?

I finally got bitten by the “One-Block Wonder” bug, and I must say, this is a very fun and easy project! The fabric I chose (before I got the book) was not the best for this technique, but it is a good practice. I was so surprised at how quickly these sew together. Now to get the rows sewn… that probably will be a little slower.

I still have some rearranging to do to make things flow a little better. I also have to decide if I am going to make it larger. This is 38 blocks. I have enough fabric to do another 2 stacks, which will give me another 76 blocks. The thing is, the repeat on this fabric is so small that the new blocks will all look just like these, so I’m thinking I may just call it quits and make this a wall hanging. I can always use the remaining fabric for lining.

This was so much fun I have already picked out another fabric to make the next one from… Today while digging through my stash I uncovered 5 yards of beautiful fabric (obviously bought on sale, because I never buy that much unless it is a good sale) that will make a beautiful One Patch Wonder. So that will be on my design wall soon!

Thanks for looking… Come back again!

  2. LOVE IT!! I haven't cave to the OBW yet. So many of my friends have done them--Diane....I've helped choose which design, I've helped with the layout, I've even quilted one but I don't have my own. Not sure if I will but I do love others. Can't wait to see more.
    Welcome back, I've missed you.

  3. I got bit by the OBW bug after seeing Diane's projects, and had a lot of fun doing it. Yours is looking great.

  4. I was at a sew in a few months back and helped place another's OBW blocks. Wow I found it quite the challenge. I like how you've brought all the white together to make a sphere in the bottom left corner. Reminds me a little of a dandelion seed ready to be wished away.
