Design Wall Monday 2/7/11

New block up on my wall. This is from Quiltmaker and is the Project Linus block for this year. I made one and that will be it for me. Paper piecing is a bit of challenge. And I'm going to do more of it, but not of this little sailboat. My frustration was getting the sky to look like sky - my fault for picking a directional print. I'm going to use it as a medallion in another charity quilt. And I'm adding some crumb blocks around it - LOL, not the the usual baby quilt, but I'll use a novelty flannel on the back.  In skimming quilt history books, I've seen a lot of crib quilts with eagles, Baltimore album blocks, pomegranites, etc on them.  This baby is getting a more unusual one, too.

What do you think?  Will mama use it as a wall hanging?  I'm wondering.

Very cute blocks. I'm sure any mama would love it.

Maybe it will become a wall hanging - but no matter what: it will be appreciated!
Have been looking at the Project Linus block, but may reconsider due to the paper piecing...

I really like this sailboat! The sails are great. I think this is a great block for a baby.

Good job on the paper pieced block! I've not been a fan of paper piecing so far but there are sure a lot of beautiful PP designs out there. I think the sky looks great.

The paper pieced block is cute!

I like your idea. I think nontraditional kids quilts are really nice and last with the child longer.
