Design Wall Monday

Very little stitching happened over the weekend aside from some work on my Brinton  Hall hexies. I also realized that I was missing 6 green hexies! I was able to scrounge enough matching scraps to remedy that. I got two rings finished but no appliqué done.

I still have the QOV on the frame and I am still trying to decide how to quilt it. I am thinking of going with one of these pantos: 



 I think I like the last one best. It gives the notion of flags waving in the wind. Today is my day off from the library so it has to be decided soon and quilted today. 

One thing I did do this weekend was to go from this: 

To this: 


Gosh, it sure is hard to open those nice neat charm packs! But I needed to get an idea of how many lights vs. darks I had. I came up with an idea for a 4 patch quit that would make for a lot less waste than the tumblers.

You have to imagine that as scrappy. This would make a great project for leaders/enders. I could make all my 4 patches and leave most of the designing until the end.

I have lots on my to do list today so I best get moving!

    I like the top and the bottom one, both. Either would give nice movement to a quilt. Love seeing your plan for the charm packs!

    I like your pantos — they are open and fast to do but do a great job of keeping the quilt together. Looking forward to seeing it done.

    Jenny Doan often remarks that opening a jelly roll is the hardest part of a project. It’s always good to have a plan and yours looks like a good way to use the Downton Abbey fabric.

    I love the second panto, but it is not wavy at all! Your fabrics and design are great. Love to see your quilt finished.

    I like that 4 patch quilt in those fabulous Downton fabrics … and can imagine some gorgeous quilting in those solid blocks.
