It's not a real design wall, it's the design ironing pad. This is blocks 1 of 20 Crossroads block. I saw this block Saturday at asimplelife Quilts. I thought it would make the perfect scrappy quilt to sent to Judy L. for West, TX. Read about that here. So I followed Deb's link to Connie's tutorial page at Freemotion by the River and got busy.
I have a bin full of 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" bricks (my original plan was to cut a bunch of 5" squares down but I didn't need to) and found the cute beige print in my stash and got busy.
By late morning, all the sections were sewn together and block construction started. I had to sew together one block before I went too far.
This morning my only plan is to get this quilt top together. I'll get right to that after visiting with friends in Blogland. I'll start my visit at Patchwork Times.
Morning sewing went along smooth until........the phone call from Hubby saying I needed to run to the pharmacy and get his medication he needs tonight. UGH! We both forgot. Maybe this isn't a bad thing,
I can think about how I want to set these blocks. I like both of them and I guess I will have to make a decision while I'm gone. Maybe a quick stop at the fabric store since I will be close. I'll see if I can find something for the borders.
