Design Wall Monday

It's the last week of April and my UFO of the month is still on the design wall in pieces. These are Carolina Chain blocks from Quiltmaker magazine. Looking at a quilt layout on a computer screen is always a good idea before sewing it together... I just noticed there is one block that is sideways. It's easy to fix at this stage!
I am making the leftover blocks into a border. I put them on point and am framing them with blue because it was the only batik dot fabric that I had enough of to do the job! It's very close to being a finished top and that's my goal for this week.

  1. I love the pieced border using the leftover blocks. The Blue calms the bright colors down a bit!
