On the Design Wall

It is hard to believe that it has been a whole year since I did any work on this quilt. So much for good intentions. Life has been very busy this past year with family, studies, travel and quilting.

These are the 25 blocks that I have made so far. Three are not complete. This leaves me with exactly 200 more to go. I could plan to do 10 per month or 1 per week or 1 per day. But I have decided to start with one. I am using bright colours and each fabric will be used 2-3 times. With my luck, I would end up with the same colour and same design side by each as one of my granddaughters says.

I have gotten somewhat obsessed with hand as well as machine applique the past 3 years and started no less than 10 big quilts with several others on the wait list. I have completely completed 2 of these quilts and trying to complete a few more. You can read about that on my other blog Quilting at the Farm.

So my plan here is to make 1 block then  make another. If all goes well, I will eventually make 198 more and finish this. It is the brightest thing I am working on right now and find it refreshing.



  1. I like your plan. Do one and then the next one. Brilliant. I think it might work. Better then making goals that don't allow for life to get in the way.

    1. Thanks and thanks for stopping by. I make goals all the time and lists. Lots of lists.

  2. Fabulous colours and fabrics! Making one and then another is a great plan - its a nice way to progress, just to make blocks as the fancy takes you!

  3. Oh my goodness! Your colours are simply gorgous... so happy and bright! Please post more blocks as you finish them. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!
