Design Wall Monday

I spent some time this weekend sewing blocks for The Twist, which is a scrap dance mystery by Carole who blogs at
From my Carolina Home.  We have been slowly working on this mystery since January and I really like having a mystery project to pull out and sew a few blocks here and there.

I decided to cut up a cute panel fabric to use as the centre blocks for step #6 and these are just as cute as a button. Miss Bunny looks like she is getting tired of the COVID lockdown! I'd like to get a permanent marker and see if I can give her a happier looking face. 

I wasn't sure if I would like yellow as a background fabric with all these pastels, and although I don't love it, it will work well enough for this baby quilt. It's a lot of yellow! 
I am delighted with all the scraps I am clearing out of the stash in this project. I'm ready to move on to step 7 this week.

That's really cute, Kathy! I never buy panels, and only have a very few sweet prints with characters or animals. Maybe if I ever get a girl grandchild that might spur some fabric buying!

She does look a little disgruntled! Yellow always seems to take over a quilt but I think it looks great here. You can tone it done with other blocks or borders!

I feel like Miss Bunny looks! Great idea to use a panel for the block centers :)

Just stinkin' cute, Kathy!
I'm am sure you could make Miss Bunny smile.
