Design Wall Monday - 6/19/17

If you read my last post, you knew that Saturday was Quilt in Public day at my LQS. 9 people came to sew, including the store owners. It was funny to see people either staring at us or completely oblivious as they drove by. We even got honked at a few times. Don't know that we have any new quilters in our neck of the woods but it was a gorgeous day to stitch with friends.


As all y'all already guessed I brought hexies to work on. I had a couple small, random things to finish and after that I wanted something simple to work on in my lap. Simple was good cuz it turned out to be a hot, breezy day. While sitting there for 4 hours I got a good start on adding the white hexies to this pieced hexie rosette. I finished the white yesterday at Mom & Dad's house.


If I lay the new white parts out with some of the other pieces I've made for this quilt, I think it looks fantastic. I gave up trying to get a better picture with the gray skies this morning - it's sew much better in real life. I love the way the gray, white, purples, blues, greens, yellows and oranges all play off each other...

This quilt will be my focus for this year's camping trip. I've got kits made up to make more rosettes on mountain tops and while I'm lounging around my camp site I'll work on adding the gray or white backgrounds to the blue rosettes. I can't wait to see how much I can get accomplished since I'm looking forward to stitching all the little bits into something larger! Don't get me wrong - there is still a LOOOONG way to go on this quilt but I want to get some of it together as inspiration to keep moving forward with it.

I like the first picture, the rosette with the white on the sides. An interesting shape, gives me an interesting design idea.
