Design Wall Monday #32

I have a big reveal for today's Design Wall Monday. Drum roll please...
Here are the 30 blocks I have been working on since January and posting almost every Saturday. If you want to see more about these blocks on my Saturday Sampler,  you can click here to read the 30 posts.
The blocks are too large for my design wall and it was tricky to get them to stay there. This is not at all the final layout, just slapping the blocks up to see what I have. Before I can get serious about making any layout decisions, I have a lot of paper to remove from the back of the paper pieced blocks.
Now tilt your head to the side and see if you don't think these blocks would be great set en pointe!?!

  9. Holy cow! Ooh! Aahhh! Gorgeous, dahling! Each time you post a new block I am impressed, but this is just amazing. You rock!

    These are 12½" blocks, no? On point with sashing or alt blocks - would you end up with a quilt to cover the whole county? ;-) Putting blocks O.P. always makes me think that you get a much larger quilt than in straight set. Am I just makin' stuff up?

  11. Love your blocks. And, I agree with others. They would look great on point.

  12. Congratulations. Just one block a week, and look where it got you! Blocks that pretty need some space to shine, they definitely need some sashing or alternating blocks to allow each block to show off a bit. I don't know how big you'd like the quilt to be, but sashing and and on point setting could get big in a hurry. Hope you have just the right place to show it off.

  13. I just LOVE your Chocolate Covered Strawberries! Calorie free, too! I think they would look great on point, but this would make a very big quilt. I will keep watching your blog to see what you decide to do with them. Congratulations on finishing them!

  24. It is great to see all your blocks finished! I have been visiting every Saturday to see what you made, and now I look forwards to seeing how you set the blocks and finish off the quilt. The blocks are so beautiful, with a good balance of fabrics. GREAT JOB!

  26. Absolutely FABULOUS! I am already looking forward to seeing the quilt you make from these.

  27. On point would be good but anyway they will look great. And with such variety, you don't have to do a lot to come up with a good plan. I am curious as to what fabric color you will be using for sashing and borders. Samplers are sometimes tricky.
