This was one of the projects I unearthed during the relocation of my sewing area. The block was made with the Inklingo 3″ clamshells and clamshell sashing collections.
A second block was done, but it has no sashing.
A third block was done as well.
I also found two more sets of clamshells for the fourth and fifth blocks. Once they’re done along with sashing this will turn into a small table topper.
The blocks are all nicely pressed, but the seams aren’t graded – yet. I’ll do that before I start sewing blocks 4 and 5.
I’m still trying to sort out a design wall – oh, how I wish I’d got that done as part of the sewing area rearranging as it would have made taking these photos a lot easier!
When we first got his new kitty tree, Baxter never went in the top cubicle. We could get him to come in it for a minute with a toy but he wouldn’t stay there. Lately, though, he has been spending lots of time in what we now think of as the penthouse.

I see faces in your clamshells.
And Baxter has his grumpy face on.
Interesting how we all see things differently – I just looked at the pictures and I can’t see faces in them. Baxter gets a little tired of me constantly trying to take his picture, I think.
I hope you get a design wall figured out. Even a portable one would be better than none if you have a place to prop one temporarily.
I think I may have found a solution – I’ll see if my idea works over the next few days.
Look at those beautiful fabrics !
Love how this is looking.
I made a design wall with a sheet of the styrofoam from Lowe’s and put quilt batting around it and nailed to the wall. You could take any small styrofoam or something and make a portable one, not so big.
I made so many masks using Kaffe fabrics that I now want to make a few quilts with them. My ideas book is getting too full!!
I do have an idea using a frame from a picture and putting flannel on it with two-sided tape. I’m going to try to find some double-sided tape this weekend.
