Design Wall Monday

I have made progress on my QPOM scrappy rail fence blocks and here they are on the design wall today. There are 34 of the 63 blocks needed, so the blocks are more than half finished. 
I don't like that purple block blob on the bottom row, so I'll dissect and reconstruct that one. I think it needs more dark purple and more black.
I must admit to feeling very self righteous as I am sewing these blocks, because they are all made from the scrap bin. Very old fabrics are being given new life and finally getting into a quilt top.

  8. I agree that purple/blue one has to be changed a bit! I am not sure self righteous is the word to use....maybe thrifty is! That means it is a free quilt...right???? Happy Monday sewing!

  10. I love that the center squares are all different colors, and that some have more than one square. Makes it so much more interesting. Love the way this is turning out.

  17. This is looking great! I agree with you on the purple blob block. I think it needs some more contrast within the block.

  20. Great use of the scrap bin on this one. No better way to celebrate using up the oldies than to add a little bit of new to the collection. Don't want to run out of fabric after all.

  22. I love your scrappy rail fence quilt. I think the colors look good, including the purple one. Hope it helps to empty your scrap bin, but if you are like me, they never seem to go down very fast.

  23. very nice I do like the purple but it does draw the eye away from the other blocks

  24. What a great block to use up scraps. Those are "free" quilts, so it shouldn't be added to your "new" list as it uses up old stuff.
