Design Wall Monday

Happy Monday! I am heading down to Ikea today with Daughter #1 and Little Man. I am pretty sure I will find trouble to get into! But this is what is on my design wall at the moment. 

Yep, city sampler blocks. And after playing around with this, I have decided I really like the way this is shaping up as a layout. I played around a bit in EQ7 to decide if I wanted to make any more blocks or not. 

  

 I think I prefer the white space at the top. This will give me lots of room to play with the quilting.  

 I kind of like the sashing and corner stones but need to think about it for a few days. 

I also started a new project this weekend but I will share that with you tomorrow. Linking up with Patchwork a Times for DWMonday.

    I love these blocks. Good call on moving the white to the top of the blocks. Can’t wait to see the finished project.

    I agree with the white at the top, too. And there is something about the sashing and cornerstones that I like … I think it adds a little more focus to your pieced blocks. Either way, I’m sure that your quilting will make this into something truly special.

  3. I’m liking the white at the top too – actually looks like a city landscape with the towers of blocks standing against the sky!

    I agree on white to top; however, if it were mine, I’d skip the sashing and cornerstones. I like the look of uneven columns clustered together. You will have fun quilting the white space!

    White on top you can quilt things growing up. On the bottom growing down. Look forward to seeing what you do.
