Design Wall Monday #21
And I played with the dirt coloured fabrics indoors! I worked on the brown version of our guild mystery. To see the colourful version of the quilt I finished earlier in the month - click here. I have had these blocks sewn since December, but they are so boring compared to my colourful blocks that I have to force myself to work on them. The deadline for showing the quilts/tops at guild meeting is in 3 weeks so I am motivated to at least finish the top. I just know that this is a quilt that will not get finished otherwise...I am not a brown person, nor do I enjoy sewing 2 colour quilts (remember the civil war blocks?).
I cut out all the pieces for the remaining 4 blocks and should be able to sew these up today. Then I just have the sashing and border to figure out.

I am hearing you about Civil War quilt colors. I had to add punches of color to my quilt so I didn't get, yawn, bored with it. I love the blocks in your stars they are wonderful.
Wow Kathy -- look how organized you are. Are those directions and cut fabric in those page holders? I agree with you about working in browns.. but the quilt does look nice. Someone will like this quilt even if it isn't our favorite!
I think the blocks are beautiful. I love both two color quilts and brown so it is right up my alley :)
Dirt colored-- LOL! I love the photo at the top of your blog. Took me a minute to figure out what it was! Delightful!
I'm totally impressed you worked so much outside and still got a lot done on the quilting front. My quilting has definitely taken a backseat to gardening.
Your blocks look terrific to me. I happen to like brown - it is such a nice warm colour - makes me think of hot chocolate!
Two thirds of the way done with the blocks.......
Won't it feel soooo goood to have it finished?
A deadline is a great way to make a dent in an aging project, Kathy! Glad you are finding motivation in that. You are organized and that should make it a bit easier. I love brown but have never made an all brown project. I agree, limited palettes are harder to work on!
The blocks look great, hope you can find the motiivation to finish them.
I'm loving your two-color blocks! :)
