Design Wall Monday - January 30, 2012

I went a little crazy this weekend and did a bunch of improvisational piecing.  These are blocks from a class I took a few years ago.  In truth, this is about 300% more blocks than I actually completed in that class.  This is on my UFO list and when I saw that I only had about 15 % done I knew I better work on it before its number gets pulled. 

Surprisingly, The Husband had some design input!  It was good, too!!  He seemed a little excited by them.  I still think they look like an unholy mess but I'm trying to loosen up - apparently, a very hard thing for me- who woulda guessed?  There are still a few blocks that can benefit from more editing.  It's a work in progress, just like me!

Have a great week.  The weather here in San Diego is simply spectacular.  I hope yours is as well.


  1. So cool... I think I need to try something like this... wonder if I can "loosen up" enough? But first... need to tackle my UFO list!


  2. I think they are very cool. I like how some of them have a solid line around the crazies... great job

  3. I may be too rigid for this... but they are a wonderful color and fun. Love the almost kite shaped block on the middle right.
