Design Wall Monday #4

My January UFO is off the design wall, the backing is sewn, and the batting is cut. Next step is pin basting...only 4 more days in the month to finish this thing and I'm going to pull out all the stops to get it done!
So the design wall was free...what to put up there? 
I gathered up all the 6" scrappy crumb blocks that I've been sewing for two years with the Rainbow Scrappers, and put them up on the design wall for a blast of mid-winter energy boost. 
I LOVE it!
I think the pink blocks need to be between the red and the purple ones, and there need to be more pink blocks. I think I need to make more blue ones too. But it's coming along just great! 
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design wall postings today.
And come on back tomorrow to see my Dare to Dresden post. Here's a little teaser photo...I'm adding some beads tonight and can't wait to show you my mini Dresden!

Very tropical looking! A perfect pick-me-up for this cold, snowy morning.

I love the colours and agree the pink should move...
It is very snowy here and I have shoveled already so I have the whole day to myself...hmmm what to do first!

What a fun and colourful rainbow quilt. I agree I think the pink would look better in between the red and purple:)

Kate said...

Love those blocks in that setting! It's so bright and fun.

Bonnie said...

I love that quilt. And, yes, more blue and more pink blocks. I think the layout is great too. I'm sure you'll really enjoy cuddling with this or someone will really like it if you give it away.

Of course, you would do your Dresden MINI! Can't wait to see it.

Yes, Move that Pink! I was told long ago not to mix pink and red...Hurts my eyes, I always told my kids when they came out dressed with odd combinations of striped pants and wild paisley shirts. I Love Dresdens, See you tomorrow...

Your rainbow scrappy quilt is so bold, what's not to love. What a great idea to use up scraps also. Sounds like it has energized you also.

Love the crumb blocks. I see a little of "Sunday Mornin Quilts" influence.
