Design Wall Monday 1/9/12

First pieced block for the Just Take 2 Quilt.  You can learn about it at the red and white button on my sidebar.  Have 4 more to do and 2 appliqued blocks.  I've decided to make mine scrappy with as much of the background the same as I can get from the piece I found in my stash.  I'll use the colors in the sparse background print to pull fabrics for the piecing.  On the whole, I want to use only 2 fabrics per block.  The quilt will be offered in four parts, so I'm not sure if I want to make four small quilts or the 78" by 90(?) that it will be.  Guess it depends on if I keep up with the blocks or not.  I would have loved to have made it red and white, but I don't have the 9 yards of white it takes nor the 6 of red to make it all the same.  And since I want to reduce my stash --scrappy it is.

Go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times and see what others have on their design wall.  I really like how participating in this keeps me moving forward in my quilting.  How did you do?

Looks great! I love those colors you are using.
If I decide to do it, I would have to go scrappy as well. I rarely have a lot of yardage around.

Love your block!
