Design Wall Monday - 4/13/15


DESIGN WALL MONDAY -
Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))
===


On my wall today -

More CRUMB BLOCKS - ;))




Before I knew it -
I had THIRTY of these little goodies - ;))

We have some "Batman" -


Some "Teddybears" -


Some "Candy canes" -
And "Clifford" peeking out of one corner - ;))


After I took a break -
And made a test block of Anita's Arrowhead block - Left-Handed - HERE -


I got sidetracked with some placemats -
In some beautiful batiks - ;))



And then I found Anita's book -
Rotary Cutting Evolution -
(c) 2010 - Anita Grossman Solomon - C&T Publishing

(I knew it was around here somewhere - ;))


So now I can't decide -

After I finish up the placemats -

And while the 9-Patch Twosies marinate on the wall -

If I want to make some more Crumb Blocks -

Or some more Arrowhead blocks -


Or try some of her Old Italian Blocks -
From her cover quilt - ;))


What's the difference? -

Here they are - side-by-side - ;))


Anita's Arrowhead Block -
TWO 8" squares yield ONE 8-1/2" finished square/block
With bias edges -

Old Italian Block -
TWO 8" squares yield TWO 6" finished squares/blocks
Straight edges -
Block orientation remains the same - ;))

I'm leaning toward the Arrowhead block -

Because I like the four-patch center -

BUT it has bias edges -

AND I only get ONE finished block from TWO squares - ;((

So before I decide -

I'll probably make an Old Italian Block test block -

To see which method I prefer - ;))

And then I keep seeing SQUIRRELS -

Gene is making more Arrowhead blocks - HERE -

And LindaL is playing with her Taxi stuff - HERE -

And LindaS just made a Jelly Roll Quilt - HERE - ;))

You gotta know -

That I have some Taxi fat quarters -

AND I even know where they are - ;))

AND I have Jelly Rolls just itching to be used - ;))

Bottom line -

I have NO IDEA what I'm going to play with this week -

I see SQUIRRELS EVERYWHERE -

And I have the attention span of a gnat - ;))




Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
