Design Wall

I'm doing the Craftsy BOM...my way.  I have read that over 40,000 people have signed up for the free online course.  The instructor is actually based in Denver.  Each month is supposed to help quilters build a particular skill.  I'm not participating for that, although there are some months in the future that feature techniques I've never tried.  I decided to participate because it's free and I was after the social experience.  The online video experience was an interesting--I think we'll see more and more of that.  I've followed along with the discussion periodically.....umm.

My blocks are 8" instead of 12" and I've been able to paper piece the January and February blocks.  I used the patterns to draft the blocks.  I didn't feel like slashing and sewing in January.  I decided to make my February blocks with geese units instead of a bunch of HSTs....sue me!  I dug out my collection of skull fabrics and some red, white, black, and grey coordinates.  The kids keep asking me who I'm making it for, why I'm making it, blah, blah, blah.  I don't know.

I have another item on my design wall.  A Twilight T-shirt.

I'm going to try starting my Beyond the Block quilt featuring the shirt.  I'm not sure if I want to use the whole printed picture, though.  I need opinions....  I'm torn.  I don't know why I don't want to include the Nomads?

  1. I say include the nomads.......because they are important to the story, but honestly I like the look of the shirt better without them in it :) I'm wishy washy with opinions.....
