Design Wall Monday

Here’s a peek at what is on my design wall today. 


I had originally planned to put all the red blocks in the upper left hand corner to give the impression of a flag. But I would need a lot more blue blocks and a lot less red. With this layout, I was able to use every block and not have any leftover.

I started with a bundle of 8 fat quarters and added the background fabric. You may remember that I had just enough left to cut out these HSTs. 


I am using these for leaders/enders now.  Here’s hoping I can get this top together today!

Linking up with Patchwork Times for DWM A Quilting Reader’s Garden for WIP Be Gone, and Cooking Up Quilts for MCM, and I Have to Say for Show and Tell Tuesday.
