Design Wall Monday

 I wanted to make another quilt for Happy Chemo as part of the Hands2Help 2016 event. I looked through my UFO list thinking I could kill two birds with one stone.  I pulled out these blocks from a guild swap last year. 

These colors look happy to me! The blocks should finish at 12 inches. I put them up on the design wall. 

 
As with most sets of swap blocks, there are variations in size which add to the challenge.  At this point, I think I will set them block to block and add a small border. Hopefully, I can get it in the frame by the end of today.

I haven’t forgotten those triangles from last week! 

  
They are now all pieced and pressed and it is time to play with them once I get the design wall cleaned off!

    Isn’t it fun to win blocks? I recently won two sets from my guild but neither had a great amount of blocks. I’ll be adding to them eventually! Hope you got them into a top by the end of the day!
