Design Wall Monday

Ringo Lake is back on the design wall today and some progress has been made. 16 blocks are now sewn together. My version of this Quiltville mystery doesn't have any sashing. The sashing blocks are going to become the borders. I really like the square in a square block that appears in the corners when there is no sashing separating the blocks.

Lots of block parts are made and ready to assemble into more blocks.

Making blocks is my favourite thing  but sewing rows together is not. So I am joining them in sets of 4. The top photo shows 4 groups of 4 blocks sewn together. 

It takes a lot of pins to match all those seams.



And just look at my adorable new pincushion that my friend Diane gave me. She got it at the Quilter's Hall of Fame! Using this lovely pin cushion makes using all these pins much more fun!

  1. Your On Ringo Lake colors are beautiful... so soothing. I used the sashing as borders, too, but had a problem and need to spend some time with my seam ripper. :(

  2. I like your quilt without the sashing between the blocks better than the original quilt. Lovely quilt!

  6. Looking good, Kathy! I'm a row sewer, myself. I find I get more confused trying to put together big blocks than just sticking with rows. Isn't it funny how everyone's brain works a little differently?
