Design Wall Wednesday 6.17.2015

Wednesday, June 17, 2015 in QUILTING by 2 Dogs Studio

Since the last Design Wall Wednesday post, I have finished my ‘Americana’ quilt top and started another project.

Solids I have worked with these squares for awhile and came up with several layouts but none of them made me happy. SO – the blocks will go into a box until I find some inspiration.

Tic Tac Toe I am crossing my fingers that I get a chance to sew the borders on this weekend.

Scrappy Summer 2015 fabrics The photo shows some of the fabrics for my Scrappy Summer 2015. I loved what I did last year…okay maybe love isn’t the correct word for all of the cutting, starching and pressing I did on the 66 fat quarters I used. My idea was to work with one fabric collection and make several smaller quilts. Check out ‘My Quilts’ page to find the five quilts I made and here is a link to the first post.

 
When I started pondering doing a ‘Scrappy Summer 2015’ I looked thru my stash trying to decide what group of fabrics I wanted to use. I came across my Kaffee Fassett and Kaffee-like fabric collections. You would categorize them into two groups – stripes/plaids and big florals. The plaids and stripes really didn’t play well with the florals so those went back on the shelf. I was surprised how many fabrics I had since I am normally not a big print fan. I find them hard to work with because you aren’t quite sure what you get when you cut up them up. For my first design idea, I made myself a couple of rules. 1) no fussy cutting the squares and 2) just let go and not worry about the big prints (easier said then done).
