For the design wall, I buy the large flannel backed plastic tablecloths after a holiday on sale for 99 cents. I’ve had this one up for at least 3 years. It is ready to be changed – perhaps after Christmas this year.
Here is an idea for a baby quilt that I like. When I have fabric scraps that aren’t enough to save for a larger quilt, I often cut them into 2.5 or 4″ blocks and put them aside. When I made this I had a many blues. This time I tried to use up pinks
Now I want to use up 4″ pink pieces. If you look carefully, I don’t always have enough of one piece of fabric, so I go with a very similar tone. By putting them on the design wall, I can see where I might need to make changes and where one is upside down etc. and sometimes I do need to get a fat quarter at the store to fill in a color gap. In this case I used a fat quarter for the darker pinks and I have some butterfly yardage that I couldn’t resist. So I’ll go with this on this quilt. See how easy that is. I’ll show you how I put it together at a later date. I still need to choose an inner border, but I’m off to a family gathering.
