Design Wall Monday

Great progress is being made on my version of the Grassy Creek mystery. I have all the block components prepared and am sewing the rows together. The top half of the quilt is sewn together, and this is the bottom half of the quilt on the design wall. 

I do not plan to add the grey strip pieced outside border (although I do think it makes a great frame for the quilt design) as the quilt is already the size it needs it to be.

It is so thrilling when the blocks join together well, especially at the angle joins like this section. Not all of my seams are well done, but when it falls into place, I do a happy dance!

Here is a photo of sewing the rows together. You can see the pink easy breezy leader-ender block to the right of the needle ready to get some stitches at the end of this long row join.

The pattern will disappear on Feb. 12th so if you are sewing along, make sure you have all the information you need before that day.

Grassy Creek is BIG -- I write from experience! I like the gray fabric you're using.

You're doing a great job on Grassy Creek! Congrats on all the little pieces lining up...Bonnie's patterns scare me just a little with all the small piecing parts....

Grassy Creek is looking good! I am working on the last of the parts before assembly myself. Love your header pic too!

I do like your version of the Grassy Creek quilt. String piecing has never appealed to me to DO, although I like the way it looks a lot of times! Enjoy your stitchy times.

It looks really good, Kathy! I am always inspired by the way you don't hesitate to take the pattern and make it fit your needs/plans. And they always turn out well.

Your version of Bonnie’s mystery is lovely, I am enjoying mine also. Love it when pieces fit together. Maybe I’m getting better at cutting, sewing and squaring up pieces! Hope so!
