Design Wall Monday - 10/28/13

It was a mixed bag this weekend with last minute prepping for the Christmas bazaar next weekend, hexies and a little too much retail therapy to soothe a broken heart.

I don't think I showed all 6 of these pieced Boomer blocks once they were finished. I haven't whipstitched them yet since I don't know what they are going to be...I could make them into a rosette or a border, add them to one of the jean jackets I picked up this weekend or ??? I think the left-most rosette is my fav.


I've also worked on making more of these green hexies. The pile probably doesn't look like much but it's 1/3 to 1/2 bigger than the last time I shared. It's kinda boring but basting is easy while watching West Wing on DVD :^)

As part of my retail therapy, I also found this great batik to use with my Salt&Pepper project. All of the diamonds will be in this dark/burnt orange category and the batik will be the border or backing. I've already cut out more BW fabrics for the stars and gone thru all my oranges for the diamonds. I also found a great BW hounds tooth for the binding. Now for my usual delima - needing to decide what this will become so I know how big to make it. I suppose since it's named after my cat, Pepper, it should be big enough for cuddling under!
