Design Wall Monday - New Project!


On my design wall today is a new project... woohoo!


These are triangles that were the Shop Hop project from Goose on the Loose. I just started working on this quilt and was finding the design process a little overwhelming, especially since the whole quilt will not fit on my design wall. 




So I made two decisions to give me some direction to get started...
1) I decided to work with only one package of triangles at a time instead of tackling the whole quilt design and 
2) I decided to try to make tumbling blocks appear in the star centers. 
So far so good. I am just starting to do some sewing of the triangles and it's not terrible, but also not a lot of fun yet!

  1. Wow, that is a lot of triangles! One part at a time sounds like a great plan. There is always some part of the quilt process that feels like work, but hopefully the joy will come when you start to see the design emerge.

  2. Love the tumbling block effect! Good idea to work with this in small parts rather than the whole.

  10. I really love the Tumbling Block in the center of the stars! I also wish I had a larger design wall. I think it is going to be a beautiful quilt!

  12. I love that new star. Never seen it before. Could it be an original design. Maybe you should think of a name for it.

  13. Cool idea. Love how you are getting the Tumbling Blocks look without set in seams! : )

  14. You have succeeded fabulously with the tumbling block in the centers. Taking this project slow and easy will make it more fun, less work. I'm going to enjoy seeing this one evolve.
