Design Wall Monday #36

On the design wall this morning are my blocks from the Cathedral Stars class I took with Bonnie Hunter last week. You can see Bonnie's quilt in the first photo on this blogpost.
I forgot when I started to put the blocks on the design wall that they will be set on-pointe in this quilt, so just tilt your head to the left a little bit and you'll be able to see how they will look in the quilt. And I just realized that I will need a lot of fabric to make the setting triangles around the outside, and since this quilt is totally from stash, I have no idea what fabric those triangles are going to be made from! Probably should have thought about that from the start! Oh well...too late now :)
There's a lot of 4 patch blocks in this quilt, which are boring to sew, so I'm going to set this one aside as a leaders/enders project until I have sewn all the required 4 patches.

  8. I'm so envious that you got to take Bonnie's class. Your quilt is wonderful and I can't wait to see it on point. I have a huge stack of scrappy 4 patches. I wonder how it would look done all in scrappy style?! Bonnie seems to pull it off but mine usually turn out looking like a miss mash. LOL.

  13. Nice! Tilting the head works when the Photo is sideways too. Leader/Enders will be fun to play with all your scraps. Do you use a Paper bag to pull them out randomly?

  14. OOOH! It's WONDERFUL!!!! I have on my October list to sort and cut the fabrics I am going to use for my Bonnie Hunter Leaders/Enders quilt. I want to go get some cheap buckets at the 99cent store to put them in.

  16. I'm sure that setting it on point will make it wonderful, but honestly? It ain't broke! The quilt top is amazing already - you've really done well with the color/value placement!

  18. Have to agree with so many others, quilt is great straight or with a tilt! Curious to see what you decide to use for setting triangles.

    I've been using Bonnie's leaders/enders technique for one of my scrap quilts and it's amazing how fast the blocks come together!

  21. I like what you've done with CS. My quilt buddy is nearly done with hers. It is one that I want to make too. I just finished My Blue Heaven...a green version. We will be taking a class with Bonnie in January Star Struck. I want to make nearly all of her patterns. Look for her third book coming out in the Spring.

  24. Great work on the Cathedral Stars top. You are moving along rather quickly. When I was sewing mine, I thought the piecing would never end. However, it is well worth the final product. Your quilt is beautiful.

  25. Both of those quilts are lovely. I am always amazed at Bonnie Hunter quilts. They are so much fun to make but look so complicated.

  26. I liked seeing your blocks set this way and then when you mentioned on-point setting, wow ... what a difference. Love it.
