Design Wall Monday: QOV



I have 35 blocks ready for today’s MLK Day Sew In (#mlkdsi on Twitter). Please join us! It’s nice to have company sewing. Company for whom you don’t have to dress up or clean up!

I’m auditioning this border fabric, which I really want to use. However, it’s looking awfully busy, and the sides have to be pieced with the blue because I don’t have enough of the mountains. I will stare at it as I put the field of blocks together this morning. Don’t be surprised if this has different borders next time you see it.

Hope you’re able to sew today.

  1. I see what you mean by busy. Looking forward to seeing the next look.

  2. Having a design wall really helps to get a better perspective. You’ll get there!! Take care.

  3. Sometimes no border is the best solution. Have you tried just auditioning a binding fabric?

  4. I love your blocks and I did a ton on my MLK holiday. I always over plan but got a lot done. I like the blue border.
