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!?!

Set on point those blocks will make a very big quilt. It will be outstanding.

CaraQuilts said...

I think they are just gorgeous!! Set anyway they will be beautiful.

Judy said...

FAB U LOUS!!! Just fabulous!!!
Any way they are set they are going to be fabulous. Did I tell you I thought they were fabulous. ;)

Darlene said...

OMG, Kathy, they are fabulous. I've watch your progress with all 30 blocks - YUMMMMMM

No matter how you set them it's going to be a beautiful quilt.

Mary said...

WOW they look gorgeous together. Set on Point, I echo Charlene...that would be a BIG quilt! I'll be watching your progress, not just on DWM.

Chris said...

On point would be a huge quilt but soooo lovely.

Dresden Quilter said...

They are amazing. I really have enjoyed watching you put them all together.

Tracy said...

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?

Yvette said...

WOW!!! I have been waiting for these and it has been well worth it. They are spectacular!!!

Karen said...

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

scraphappy said...

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.

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!

Chocolate covered cherries, yum!

On point, horizontal, any way would be gorgeous!

nice job, girl.

Great job with the 30 blocks. What's even more amazing is that you blogged about each one. It was fun reading about each one as you made them. I'm patiently waiting to see how you set them; on point will make a smashing quilt.

Angie said...

Love it!

Jeanne said...

Beautiful blocks, Kathy! You have a nice selection of lights and darks. It will be a gorgeous quilt.

Diane said...

OMgosh they are fabulous! set on point, sashed, whatever they are to die for!
You must be thrilled!

AnnieO said...

Really really great looking, each one of them. Setting on point would be so dramatic and pretty. Wonderful work you did on these, Kathy. I hope this will be a quilt for YOU to keep and love!

Julie in WA said...

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!

orchidlover said...

They are amazing and yes they would look stunning set on point

Love and hugs GIna xxxx

Sweet P said...

Those blocks are gorgeous!

sophie said...

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

Gari said...

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.

The Quilting Pirate said...

WOW...just all I can say is WOW! This is going to be a large quilt indeed and soo beautiful!!
