Design Wall Monday - 12/7/15

Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. -
At Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

On my wall today -

Some Christmas blocks - ;))

They were supposed to become a "Basket Weave" -
(Keepsake Quilting Pattern #6460 - HERE - apparently no longer available) -

A straight set of alternating horizontal and vertical blocks - ;))

But with the first batch of blocks back up on the wall -

It looked like a pretty boring layout -

And it didn't do much to show off the beautiful Christmas prints -


I took two of them -

Put them right sides together -

Marked a diagonal line down the center -

Sewed 1/4" to the left and right of the diagonal line -

Cut them apart down the center -

And got this -

MUCH better - ;))

I could try to make a little path -

Or make some big squares -

Or a bunch of other things - ;))

SOOOOO many possibilities -

And SOOOOO NOT boring - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Ah yes, I love the different things you can do with strip blocks cut on the diagonal. Have fun playing with those. And..."hey, look! Squirrel!!!!"

Haha - you have given me plenty of "Squirrels" - I'm just returning the favor - ;))
