Design Wall Monday #46 - Paperweights

Wow...did that week go by faster than usual?! I can't believe it already time for the Monday Design Wall posting. When I was working on a ruthless clean up in my sewing room, I found these blocks, in various stages of construction. They kept calling to me until I gave in and started sewing them. I was annoyed by this distraction because I was supposed to be cleaning up, and because I have so much Christmas sewing to do!
But I enjoyed the sewing so much I got all the blocks sewn into a quilt top! This is a pattern called Labyrinth by Blue Underground Studios, which I started at quilt retreat in February. I wasn't feeling the love for it then, but I love it now! I need to buy some border fabric, and wonder if I can still buy the Paperweights fabric line anymore?
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see some more design wall posts.

That's a really fun pattern. Even though you weren't cleaning, your time was obviously well spent.

Isn't it interesting how sometimes a project just takes command and tells you it will be finished NOW!
Very fun pattern!

Mary said...

Amazing what we quilters find to distract us from cleaning. I think it's fun to have a finish even if it wasn't in the plan for the day.

Great pattern and lovely bright colours :)

Cleaning up always seems to unearth "must do immediately" in my sewing area too! These look great, love the fabric choice and colors.

If you type 'paperweights fabric' into Google you will see it is available in several online shops.

Heather said...

Pretty blocks.

Gail said...

Amazing! I'm sure I would mess up placement, I seem to have moments of being directionally challenged. Nicely done.

I like the bright colors and design of this quilt. So glad you had the desire to pick the project back up. Sometimes we just need a break to see the project in a new light.

Sometimes distractions are a good thing! Your quilt top looks great.

Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do. It's unusual and awesome.
