What’s On My Design Wall November 21, 2011

Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.

Here’s my pile of log cabin blocks.  They now measure 6 1/2″. I have 19 more blocks to go before I start the next to last log.  I’m getting excited to see how this is going to come together.  I’ve been playing with layouts in EQ and haven’t decided on the final layout.

Meanwhile, I’ve been sewing HST Squares for the Ocean Waves quilt (current count 840 of 1584) and putting blocks together.  I’ve caught myself just staring at it mesmerized by the pattern and how all of the fabrics are playing together.  This is enough blocks for two rows, but it’s easier to see the pattern this way.

If this is not enough, I’ve also been playing with Orca Bay.  That story can be found HERE.

To see if anyone is working on something which doesn’t have 1000’s of pieces and 100’s of fabrics, check out the links over at Patchwork Times.

The turquoise “ocean” popped out when I saw the thumbnail photo on Design Wall Monday. Great color choice! Are you doing the HSTs as leaders-and-enders? (In between Orca Bay hourglasses. :))

Yes, the HSTs are currently my l/e as I work on both the log cabin and Orca Bay– although my Orca Bay is falling behind already. This is just too fun to work on!

You sure have a lot of pieces to keep straight…don’t know how you do it!

Organization – and really only working on two quilts – Orca Bay got put on hold until I figured out my revised colors.

I love your ocean waves!

I just love the Ocean waves, it is a favorite of mine. Nice job. Happy Thanksgiving.

Thousands of pieces is right! Looks like lots of beautiful fabric to touch and admire in all your projects 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!
