DESIGN WALL 'SELFIE'

After finishing a few quilts and getting them posted and delivered, I had room on my wall to play around with more blocks.

Arrows from the Mid Century Modern group are zinging their way to my house. So fun to see them all together



 There are several projects going on here. Sometimes I just stand and stare.

The other day Vickey asked if anyone would mind making her broken herringbone blocks for this month as she was a little maxed out. I really enjoyed making mine, so I offered to do it. First this purple one...



... and then I did a red one. I pondered what colour to add as my accent and then I remembered the red and aqua combo.  Yes please!


 I want to keep this one!!


 I can enjoy them for a couple more days, then they are in the mail.
Have a great week.

linking up with anything goes Mondays

Your design wall is just fabulous. I love having a little peek into your sewing room. Wish I could spend time there with you, sewing together. Wouldn't THAT be fun!!

Your herringbone blocks are beautiful. I love that the red one has just a touch of aqua.

When I first saw "selfie" in your title, I thought you were talking about yourself on the wall taking a selfie lol. This blog considers taking selfies a "selfitis."

All your fabric and your work is stunning!

Sarah said...

I often stare at the chaos on my design wall! It's a myriad of hexie projects (ie slow to finish) so I wonder how I will ever finish it all. Great group of arrows from your bee - can't wait to see more of them.

OPQuilt said...

Best line ever in a quilting blog: "Sometimes I just stand and stare." Loved this! I sometimes just sit and stare at my IG thread--taking a brain break on the iPhone.

The herringbone blocks turned out wonderfully, and it's fun to see your design wall full of terrific possibilities (including our arrows!). New ideas and fun ideas!

Too much inspiration all at once for me. Arrows, feathers, circular log cabins ... I love them all.

Anne said...
