No design wall for me yet but I do still have that old flannel back table cloth that I had used for years. I spread it out on my bed and used it to lay out my Sow-A-Long blocks. I'm glad I'm stopping at 50 blocks for this quilt because I'm hoping I have enough of the fabric leftover from the setting triangles to make an inner border. I like the way the blocks float on the quilt. But if there isn't enough, I'll just use the dark outer border and be happy with that.
If you enlarge the photo, you will see that EQ7 cuts the outer cornerstones. I'm not doing that and don't know how to make EQ7 show them the way I want them. Any tricks or tips for that??
The four diagonal rows on the left are all sewn together. The 5th row is complete but not sewn on yet and the remaining rows are stacked and waiting their turn at the machine........That right there is why I need to get that design wall up. I like sleeping in my own bed. And after the whirlwind weekend Quiltathon, I was ready for my bed pretty early last night.
Grab yourself a cuppa and check out the other great design wall posts over at Patchwork Times. I love Monday in Blogland.
