Design Wall Monday 11-30-09

The top three rows are all sewn together. I decided to put cornerstones in the sashing, so I have small aqua fabric squares there. If you want to see what others are doing, check out Judy's blog.

Yesterday I did some dyeing. I haven't for a long time, but I had the need...a t-shirt for my husband, 3 yards of fabric (in a rainbow I hope) and 3- 1/2 yard pieces with the left over dye. I made a huge mess, and then put the fabrics in the cooler you see in the bottom left hand side of the picture. My house is quite cool, so I put it in with a heating pad on low. I remember reading that somewhere so I hope it stayed warm enough to batch properly.

I've had the dyes for a loooooong time, so I probably won't get deep or bright colors, but the dyes have been stored in a cool dry place, so maybe they have survived. I'll show the results after I wash the fabric later today.

I just love how turquoise makes a quilt sparkle. I guess turquoise is my yellow.

I cannot believe you have already started stitching your D9P. Mine is still in the open envelope it was mailed to me in . . .

Love it with the cornerstones! I've never tried dyeing...sounds like fun though!

I got distracted with the quiltville mystery but I will get back to my blocks soon. I really like your idea of the cornerstones and might do that on my second quilt. I am adding some blocks and making 2!

Love your layout - it's such a versatile block
