Judy Laquidara, over at Patchwork Times, has a Design Wall Monday every Monday (imagine that! LOL) and asks everyone to post what is on their design wall, then link to her blog.
For what seems like the last month I have had the same thing on my wall, and this weekend I started a new project that has been ruminating for a while. I have wanted to make a string quilt for quite a long time, just didn’t feel I had enough variety of strings yet in my stash. I had purchased one of Moda’s Bali Pops and had the brilliant idea to use those in my string blocks. The Blogger’s Quilt Festival this last week gave me my final inspiration with this quilt at Creations by Melinda – Kiwi Zinger. Is that not GORGEOUS!? I sure don’t have enough selvages, but my Bali Pops sure would work for a Bali Zinger…..LOL
I completed 6 blocks just to get an idea of what it would look like and to decide what color background I would like to use…..So here is what is on my design wall –
I have been playing with the black or the off white background. I thought I would really like the black more, but the off-white adds some really cool texture. Black, off-white, or possibly combining the two in the whole quilt….what to do!
