Now that I have enough of all the units done, I decided to play. The temporary design wall was put into place and then I put up four of the alternative blocks I came up with from the mystery. My blocks will finish at 15″ each and I’ve decided to make a 45″ x 60″ lap quilt with them. I’ve still not decided on the borders and will leave that decision until I have the blocks all put together.
This was the alternate layout I had been thinking of for the units I’ve pieced so far using the Inklingo Celtic Solstice collection to print my shapes. I like it but wanted to see how it would look if I moved a couple of things.
First I rotated the blue chevrons. I like this but wanted to try one more thing.
A quick rotation of the four-patch blocks, and it looks like this. It breaks up the yellow a bit at the intersections where they meet the Birds in the Air units. I’m pretty sure this is the layout I’m going to choose, but will take a couple of days to decide.
I have quite a few units still to make, but I may just stitch at least two of the blocks together once I’m sure which layout I’m going with. Or perhaps I’ll stitch together all four of them as they will give me the roadmap going forward. Because, knowing me, it may take quite some time before I get this finished!
I’m linking up to Bonnie’s last link-up post on the mystery quilt and now I’m headed there to have a wander about to see what others have done as well.
It started snowing around midnight Tuesday and continued all through Wednesday. Of course we had appointments at the eye doctor Wednesday afternoon. Couldn’t have been Tuesday afternoon, when it wasn’t snowing. No, it had to be Wednesday. I took this shot out the cab window on the way home.
“Super Design Wall.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a castle in Ireland to use as a design wall?
