Design Wall Monday - May 21, 2012

This is a block I created after viewing the Craftsy Block of the Month video for May.  It's supposed to be a wonky log cabin.  I added the black in order to make it into a rectangle.  I'm not sure what I will do with this block.  It might make a cute trivet cover or potholder.  I don't have any more of the bug fabric that I used for the center. 

I also made another grannie square block.  Now I have a total of 13.  I've been considering how I will set them and after looking at other quilts online, I'm thinking that I will not add sashing strips.  I think sashing would detract from my efforts to make these blocks replicate crocheted granny squares. 

Now that I've relocated to the cabin for the summer I'm trying to get back into sewing and quilting on a daily basis.  Unfortunately I did not bring all my fabrics.  That would have required yet a third trip so I'll just make due with what supplies I have.  I did pack several UFO projects which should keep me busy.  I also plan on knitting at least one pair of socks this summer. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Feel free to add your comments and check out Judy's Patchwork Times for more Design Walls. 

Happy Sewing.
