Last Monday, I showed my 7 of my Crabapple blocks and after the return of the Mojo on Tuesday, I am now putting on the borders. I love how Design Wall Monday can wake up the Mojo and even with limited sewing time can result in so much progress.
I love putting my quilt center up on the wall and adding the borders pieces to see what the whole thing is going to look like. And how you can spot a mistake or something that needs your attention from a photo. I'm looking at the bottom setting triangle and wondering what the heck is going on with it. I'll find out soon. (Nothing serious, it just needed to be smoothed out. Thank goodness! I did not want to break in the new seam ripper!)
I thought I had more than enough sections made for the border but when I divided my pieces into 4s and counted, I need to make more. I haven't sewed them into long rows yet so I can mix up the colors I am adding.
I love that I am using so many of my short 1 1/2" strips and I can now close that drawer. My next leader/ender project is definitely going to use 2 1/2" strips and squares for the majority of it, I can't get either drawer closed.
Go over to Patchwork Times and see all the other fabulous design walls throughout Blogland. Be prepared to stay and visit for a while.
