Design Wall Monday

Today is the link up for the Good Fortune mystery over at Quiltville. I haven't worked on my mystery since the beginning of January. I have a lot of sewing still to do since I want to make mine larger, and I plan to work on it at my winter quilt retreat, so it's packed away until then. I look forward to seeing all the link ups today.

I have been busy working on making the sampler blocks for the 2018 July Shop Hop quilt. I just got a "bee in my bonnet" about finishing this quilt and sewed all the alternate blocks this weekend. The colours for this project were neutrals, and it was a wee bit boring, so I added in some teal colours. Here is the schoolhouse block, where I have substituted 3 scraps of teal fabrics.


This is what the design wall looks like with the sampler blocks and the alternate blocks sewn. There are 5 more blocks to finish, 2 of which are hand appliqu├ęd butterflies which will take a bit of time to complete. 

Hop over to Small Quilts to see more design wall postings.

  1. I really like the addition of the teal. It is not overwhelming but does add some interest to the neutrals.

  3. My Good Fortune is also put away while I work with my quilting mojo. It's not too far away for when I want to piece again. Love the sampler. I'm having a blast revisiting some of my older projects.
