Design Wall Monday


Early this morning, I actually pulled up the covers over myself - yeah, the hot spell has broken!  I am so relieved.  I don't know how long it will last, but I'm enjoying every minute of coolness for now - it's only 79 degrees in the house right now!

 I decided to do a little straightening in the sewing area.  So now on my design wall is this pile of scraps.  It's time to deal with some of them.

Three hours later (after a couple of cool down/water stops) I'd produced these:


 four small units that measure only 9" by 10" when put together.  Designing fabric is much harder than one thinks! Maybe I'll give the rest of those scraps away - this is taking too much time away from applique.  Stay tuned. I should have decided by Friday.

What's on your design wall?  I'm linking to Judy's wall at Patchwork Times and Lyn's BOMs Away.  See you there.

I have only 'designed' fabric a time or two, but it was really fun. I love your colors!

Hehe :) Scrap play doesn't float everyone's boat. It's something that I'm sure I would like, but have tried only once and need some time to get the knack of.

Great layout - I am liking the touch of orange. We are still very humid here in Vegas - should be better in a couple weeks:-)

LOL, those scraps look awesome in that block. But I know what you mean. We save all those scraps and it takes so long to use them!! 79 is not very cool in these parts. I hope it cools off to a normal temp very soon for you.
Great block. That looks like fun. I'm sooo glad you are cool or at least cooler.

LOL! I imagine making your own scrappy fabric is similar to making crumb blocks. The crumb blocks did not work for me. I just fiddle too much and that eats away tons of time.
