Design Wall Monday 11-23-09

I've sewn together 4 of the blocks in the first row. I think I'm going to have a narrow sashing between blocks, maybe 1 inch. It's interesting to see the variety of quarter inch seams in the blocks. Some of them are as small as 1/8" in places, but almost none of them are more than 1/4". I'm not going to work at matching seams within the blocks, but I am going to try to match the edges, so some easing will have to take place. It's also interesting to see that some other quilters press their seams open, as I do.

If you want to see what others are doing, check out Judy's post, and you might think about joining in, it does provide a reason to get something done so you can post something new.

I do like the sashing. This just screams '50's to me, I love it!
I press my seams open too.

Love your layout. Have been playing with different layouts too. Haven't decided yet.

You and Quilter Kathy must have been on the same wave length.

Morning.... just thought I would let you know that I mentioned one of your quilts on my blog - I saw it in your little flickr widget. The four patch posie with the shadow setting - looks great and I may try the shadow setting on some stack & whack blocks I have sewn but never set into a top.

Who knows, you may see my version on a design wall monday someday!
