I found part of my design wall! I just slapped blocks up in a random, alternate order...it will change.
I can only get seven blocks across on this piece of the design wall...one setting I am toying with is an alternating setting, nine blocks by nine blocks. I would need forty-one applique blocks and 40 pieced blocks. I think I have all but 3-4 pieced blocks, but I am really behind on the applique blocks.
I am having a hard time getting good pictures, so I will present them in sections.
All the blocks will finish 6 inches.
Should I sash between blocks, should I not?
I am also considering a medallion setting with a larger applique block in the center. And some interesting alternating borders would be fun...hmmm...I have a lot to think about as I applique away.
Here are Mary and Ola's blocks in all their glory...all 6-inch blocks. I am so lucky! They are WICKED good piecers!
I have glued up two more blocks. The holly one seems OK, but I might put a lighter "twig" in the squirrel block so that I don't "lose" the tops of the acorns...
Yep...I will definitely tease out that little twig and make a light brown or light green one...
