Currently Parked on the Design Wall

Today, my design wall looks like this.

Design Wall - Monday 5/20

A piece of selvage fabric, layered, pin-basted and waiting for me to decide how to quilt it–the stencil next to it is one possibility; a piece of batik with three giraffes that I may be ready to use as part of a design for a new project, and a flock of 10 scrappy geese blocks for this month's Block Lotto.  Nine of them were made seven fabrics, ranging from light to dark to prove that it was possible to make 9 unique blocks (the maximum number to enter into the drawing) from only 7 fabrics.

I am experiencing that pause in the flow that comes with finishing up some projects and beginning others.  Since finishing the checkerboard picnic quilt and the English paper pieced tea cozy over the weekend, I haven't decided if the next thing will be one of these or something else.

You are so funny! I like the idea of "proving" that you can make nine unique blocks from seven fabrics. You must be from a scientific background...! Cheers! Toni

Oh, the possibilities with the batik giraffes! "The pause in the flow"...I love that phrase and can relate.

Did you happen to notice how nicely those flying geese go with the giraffes.
