Design Wall Monday - UFO progress

On the design wall is a few "Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll" blocks, which is my UFO to finish this month. And by "finish", I mean a finished quilt TOP!
I have a good start on cutting the sashings and am trying to decide on the cornerstones. I have green on the wall now, but might go with brown. I also decided from this photo that I don't like the half blocks on the outside edges, so I am making progress on the layout choices and will soon be ready to start sewing the rows.
To see more design walls, hop over to Patchwork Times.

  2. Did you consider using solid blocks instead of string blocks? I want to make other Bonnie string quilts but will probably use solid pieces of fabric in place of string blocks.

  3. Beautiful blocks! How about strings for the setting triangles?

  4. It's looking great Kathy! I love your soft pinks and browns. Are you doing the pieced border? Mine is still just a TOP but I consider it finished - for now anyway :*)

  7. I think the blocks look pretty together without the strings. The green cornerstones look good to me, but I'm sure you will find what works for you.

  15. Gee, my 'Roll, Roll Cotton Boll' is still sitting in a bucket in the basement. I haven't even started cutting the fabrics yet. Oh well.
