Design Wall Monday #30

I think this must be my latest design wall post yet! I almost forgot about it!
I have been preparing a quilt for machine quilting so haven't done a lot of piecing lately, but I did make some progress on this wallhanging, which I posted about in May. I cut up the panel and framed the 5 flower blocks. I screwed up on fussy cutting one of the blocks...can you tell which one?!? It doesn't look too bad on the photo, but I was having a little fit about it at first!
It was really challenging for me to figure out which fabric was supposed to frame each block. Can you tell which of these fabrics is the "white small floral", the "blue small floral" and the "pink small floral"???
What I ended up doing was magnifying the pattern on the front of the pattern and figuring out which fabric went where by looking at the picture.
I tried to fussy cut the blocks really carefully so that I could preserve some of the motifs such as the bees and the hummingbird to put in the quilt somewhere.
Next I have to finish sewing the pinwheels and start putting the quilt top together.
I'm off to check out the other design walls posted at Judy's blog...wow, I'm #48 this week!!

I bought that Panel last Month when we drove to Mt Vernon on the Shop Hop. I am happy to see how you are using the panels.

looks great-what a lot of work involved w/the fussy cutting-and I thought panels were suppose to be for easy stuff!

This is so cute. I love fussy cut panels and you have them set so nicely. They look great.

I think we all point out our own mistakes too soon. If you hadn't asked for the fussy cut mishap I would have just assumed it was supposed to be that way. These will be cute with pinwheels. Happy Monday.

I can't tell the cutting mistake :) What a fun happy project to be working on!

That is looking gorgeous already. Can't wait to see it finished.

You had me laughing trying to figure out which frame fabric the designer was describing. I'm still trying to figure out which one is the "white small floral" and I'm staying stuck there for that one; forget trying to decide between the other two descriptions. You did figure out what to do and that's what quilters are great at. It will be beautiful when your done so don't forget to share a final photo with us.
