Design Wall Monday August 29, 2011

Here is my current project.  These are blocks from Thimbleberries Block by Block book.  The book shows using six blocks and making a wall hanging with a wide border.  I will be making just one more block and then I plan to do some type of scrappy sashing and border.  This will be for a table runner to go in my living room. 
I also finished the quilting on my version of Bonnie Hunters Blue Ridge Beauty.  This pattern is from her book Adventures with Leaders and Enders.  It was an easy pattern to follow and a lot of fun to make.  The two pieces I used for the back would not look good right next to each other but ended up looking just great when I put a scrappy strip of blocks between them.  My plan is to get the binding on this one this week. 

Have a great Monday and be sure to check out all of the other design walls at patchworktimes.com.

Love the backing. I, too, have had success using blocks to separate fabric for the back. It helps use up littler pieces of fabric too.

Congrats on the great finish! My project is still a bag of blocks...but I still love this pattern, so I must get the bag out and work on it!

With one more block this will make a beautiful runner! Can't wait to see it together!

I made Blue Ridge Beauty in Black and Teals. Right now I'm working on Jamestown Landing in Pink and Neutrals. Smart to put your leftovers down the backing. I think it makes for a much more interesting back. Sandi

Love your "Blue" Ridge Beauty. Good job.
