Design wall Monday July 26

Happy Monday. I love Mondays, with all these blogs to look through at Patchwork Times to see what is on all kinds of different design walls. After I finished Shakespeare in the Park last week, I discovered that I had all kinds of red, gold and black scraps left, of course, so I decided to do something with them, rather than just shove them in a drawer. So, I've started a quilt called Peas in a Pod, just a lap size, out of a book called Simple Comforts, by Kim Diehl. It's a fairly easy pattern, although the applique melon shapes are a bit time consuming, but I'm liking the way it is turning out. It has used up all those scraps, but I've ended up having to cut into other fabric, so it's generating more scraps, but that's what makes it so much fun. A never ending supply of scraps to do more scrap quilts. I should be able to get it done this week, although I have a customer quilt I need to do tomorrow, and I have to work 3-11 at the hospital tonight. But, if I get moving, instead of sitting here on the computer, I can get the last of the melon shapes that I need freezer papered to the fabric, and take them to work to cut out on my supper and coffee breaks. So, I think that's what I'll do.

  6. This looks neat! I have never seen this combo with melon shapes - nice! The moment curves are involved blocks just look so different (and complicated...).
