Design Wall Monday



Clarissa is on the design wall this morning.
This is block #15.
I try to make each block a little bit different and I like how a few well placed hourglass blocks give this one a diagonal emphasis.






Here are all the blocks together on the design wall. I wanted to see what they would look like all smushed together with no sashing space.
I miss the sashing space!
I think my goal is to make 5 more blocks.
Total # of pieces = 2,160

I love this quilt, it's so pretty! 2,160 pieces! Yikes! I just finished a quilt with 1,590 and thought that was crazy! It's looking really good, sashing or no.

That'll be a LOT of tiny triangle Pieces. I love the Blues and browns!
Last week, I biggie sized the 150 Canadian Women #65 Block you showed. Mine wasn't as scrappy as yours. The link doesn't work on that Post, FYI. Thanks for sharing.

I agree that the sashing will help define the quilt, but the blocks are wonderful, whatever the setting!

I've got to make one of these quilts. I even considered sitting down this afternoon and playing with some hourglass blocks. Then I looked at my empty sewing table and remembered my sewing machine is in the repair shop - sigh~

Very inventive within your limited colorway, Kathy! You're enjoying all this tiny piecing, obviously.
