Design Wall Monday, Feb. 10, 2014

I've put Three of a Kind back up on the wall. I have a few of the border units pieced now. I'm using components of the blocks as leaders and enders for the piecing here, and when they run out, I use the border units, so that I'm constantly using something in this quilt as the start and stop process, rather than constantly clipping long threads. The blocks also go together much faster this way. Twenty four blocks done, twelve more to go. Then I can begin the process of putting this one together. The more I see of it, the more I like it. In the final product, there is a 6 inch border of the Kona Ash in between the body of the quilt and the border blocks. They all eventually look like they are floating. I'm linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday, and then I think there might be some knitting for the rest of the evening.


  1. I just went over to Judy Martin's site to see the completed quilt. Wowzer. I love it. Yours is going to be gorgeous. I love the colors you're using.

  2. can't wait to see this together-always love piecing Leader/ender style so efficient.

  3. The more I see this, as you complete the blocks, the more I love it! It's such fun!! :)


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
