Design Wall Monday - Sept 12

This is what's on my design wall today.  It kind of looks like someone threw fabric at the wall and walked away.  Not sure where this is going to go, but these are some of my 1.5" squares, which I hope to turn into a quilt of some sort.

The idea of graduating the colours into each other isn't working out.  I think I'll ignore colours and look at the values next, and see what I can do with that.

To make myself feel better, here's the progress on my tic-tac-toe quilt.  All blocks assembled, and the backing is pieced and ready to go.    What looks like a blue border here is actually the backing.  I'm planning to leave the quilt without a border, and bind it in the same blue as the main grid.  I pieced the backing, using some additional tic-tac-toe blocks I received.

My sleight of hand is almost quilted, so this will I think be next in line.  I have just enough of the blue to bind the quilt, and I picked up batting yesterday so I'm good to go on this.


  1. Fun tic-tac-toe quilt with a perfect backing!

  2. What a fun quilt! love the blues. Good luck with the 1.5 inch squares, I'm sure you are up to the challenge of figuring out exactly what to do with them.

  3. I liked your design wall. I do that every once in a while. I don't always get a quilt out of it but after the same pieces have hit the wall a few times they decide they need to become a quilt, just so I will stop throwing them around. ;-)
