Design Wall Monday #17 -Sweet Treats

I started Judy's Sweet Treats Quilt Along as a special treat for myself...a May For Me project. It is very relaxing sewing, that can be worked on in small bits of time. I have the 30 blocks started and am cutting out the pieces for the next round which will not have any white fabrics because I think they will be the sashings (I reserve the right to change my mind at any time LOL). I am liking the addition of the red dots and orange dots, and plan to add in more of those. 
Do you think it needs some yellow!?!
To see what other quilters have on their design wall today, hop over to Judy's Patchwork Times.
I enjoyed lots of family time  for Mother's Day...hope you enjoyed your day! I even had some "Me" time in the sewing room!
Later in the week I'll be posting baby news (no...not mine!), a shop hop report, UFO progress, a gardening update, and a fabric giveaway...come on back!

Love the sweet treats, I'm going to have to start one of those. Looks like a great leader and ender project and I'm looking for one of those. Oh the suspense, I'll definitely be back later this week :)

I am really liking the white in your sweet treats and looking forward to seeing the next step. What a fun quilt this will be.

Sally Hamilton said...

Dots Dots Dots - love them - and a big yes to yellow!

Gari said...

This quilt just gets better and better. I would add yellow and any other color as this is really a happy quilt.

Vicki said...

Such a great quilt and I don't think you can ever have enough yellow in a quilt! Or dots...or purple...or orange....or well you get my idea. :)

I vote for yellow, too. It just makes things sparkle!

Indeed you need to add YELLOW. Frankly as I read your post I thought the sashing might be good in YELLOW since it seemed that you had a good amount of WHITE in the project so far. Is it a YELLOW Month? The Rainbow challenge looks like fun. Last years YELLOW project is very nice. Have fun with it during the quilting...what plans for emblishments do you have...oh don't say...I want to see it when you finish. Sandi

May for Me!! I love it!

Kate said...

Love the dots, very bright and fun. Yellow would work in well with what you already have.

Heather said...

I was so busy looking at all the bright colours that I didn't even notice the dots. Amm looking forward to how this proceeds. Thanks for sharing.

Dotty fun! I think yellow would look good mixed in with these brights. Glad you had a good Mother's Day!

Cathy said...

I think yellow would be great!
