Design Wall Monday #32

On the design wall today are my first 16 blocks for the 36 patch quilt along
The colour is "off" in this photo because I took it late last night, but you get the idea. I am using up 2" white scraps and OLD floral prints from my stash and feeling very proud of myself!  I am sewing these blocks as a treat in between sewing together the long rows of my hexagon quilt
Want to see a fun and already finished 36 patch quilt? Hop over to Life's a Quilt and see the "Summer Berries" quilt...I just love it!
Then you can hop over to Patchwork Times' Design Wall Monday for lots more inspiration!

LOVE IT! What size are the squares???

Judy D in WA said...

Another fabulous quilt in progress! I love the idea of making a new, simple block as a break from another project. Very clever!!

Connie said...

This is coming along so well! Great colors and you have to be tickled to use up some of your old florals!

Bonnie said...

It's coming along nicely. I've used so much of my white scraps and pieces up I had to get more. And, ouch, I hate paying $8 to 10 for white on whites.

It's great! You are using such pretty florals.

Ellen said...

It looks so very feminine - lovely!

Gari said...

Your blocks really look nice. I did the same thing (16 patch blocks) to get rid of some 30s fabric. Didn't work so I am now doing 30s tumblers and that isn't going to finish off that fabric either. HELP!

I love this block--whatever the colors. I did one a few years ago in black and florals. So fun and fast!
Yours looks so springy and Summer Berries does look like you could stir it up into a pie. Makes me want to start another one. Must resist. Got to stick to my diet plan and finish something before I start something!

That is gorgeous!! What a great way to use those florals -so pretty!

Mary said...

Way to use up those 2" strips! I have shoe box totes and bags to keep all my stuff organized when it isn't on the wall- in answer to your Q on my DWM.

Jeanne said...

Your blocks are wonderful. Great idea to use your florals for these.

Cathy said...

I love it! It is wonderful! Definitely going on my want-to-do list. I think I like it with the white in each block, acting as a unifier. It gives it the Postage Stamp quilt look.

Jan said...

Great idea with the florals. I've got to add this simple, but wonderful pattern to my list!

Brita said...

Way to go -- use up those old fabrics!! But the blocks in your header have me drooling on my keyboard! What's the story?!

Chris said...

Using scraps and a beautiful quilt. Win/win in my book.

Nice project. Sure is a big difference than the fabrics of Summer Berries. Sandi

Amy said...

Looking good. Good way to use up the scraps.

Theresa said...

Great way to use up scraps. I think I'll put this on my to do list for some day down the road!! LOL!!

Kate said...

This is so cheerful looking! I love how the colors bounce off the white.

I am loving all the 36-patch quilts that are being made. I want to make one....another quilt on my "make someday" list!

Kate said...

Very pretty blocks. Such a good way to use up stash.
