Design wall 2/27/17 bindings

Actually my design wall is bare at the moment………I made a quilt last week using our Triple Play pattern. Here it is without the borders added on. 

I used two different marbled fabrics from The Quilted Treasures line.  It’s now finished, quilted and in the stack of bindings that I need to finish. I usually try to finish the bindings before the stack gets out of hand but this time they got away from me! I have 8 that are ready to sew the bindings down. 

So nothing is on my design wall this week. But there’s plenty on my plate. Bindings…….

Left over batik blocks

I ended up having 12 squares leftover from the batik quilt top, so I needed to come up with a way to use them. (I didn’t want to have them laying around in a drawer or box somewhere). So I made them into HST’s. Now I have 24 squares, which is enough to do a lap quilt. I played around with arranging them on the design wall and here’s a few ideas….
I could make pinwheel blocks and add a sashing.


Or turn them and make squares on point. Again adding a sashing.


I could just make them triangles with a sashing.


Or I could do this.


Or this.


Or this.


Or even this way.


Decisions decisions. I’m not sure what I will do with them yet. I’ll look at them today while I quilt and maybe decide on the layout…….

Have a good day!
