Design Wall Monday - 2/27/17

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 -
Five Stars Plus 5 -

I had the "borders" decided - but spent some time auditioning corner options -
I knew that I wanted the red squares in the corners -
But the other three spots were giving me trouble -
I tried yellow/white HST in the larger size and a large yellow square -
But switched that out with a yellow/yellow HST possible maybe -

I liked the yellow/white HST but wasn't sure about the "inner" block -
And then decided to go back to my original blue/yellow Hourglass Block -

Turned the yellow/white HST this way -
And liked it - ;))

Tomorrow I'll post a tutorial on how I went from an EQ7 drawing to the final top - ;))

And yes - I know the red squares in the corners are bigger than they should be -
I did that on purpose -
The corners squares were supposed to be cut at 4-1/2" x 4-1/2" -
But because I used a 10" square -
I just cut it in half both ways -
Got four (4) squares at 5" x 5" -
And didn't see any point in trimming off the extra half inch -
When I was putting them in the "corners" -
And would be "squaring" the quilt top later -
You never know - I might need that extra half inch - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I like the red corners and probably that bit of blue is happy to get some company.
