What's a girl to do when gloomy, cloudy weather thwarts decent indoor photographs?
Take the design wall outside, of course! Lucky me, my design walls are just batting wrapped and stappled around insulation foam core. They're each about 60" wide, so I can move them throughout the house to catch better light for photographs... or even take them outside!
While my dog looked on disapprovingly, I was happy to snap these shots just outside my door. Green trees and just enough sunshine! On my design wall today are two different projects which I thought you might like to stop by and see.
These are May bee blocks for a Love Circle quilt designed by Kirianth of Glass Snail. Take a gander at her beautiful mock up:
Such gorgeousness! I feel lucky to get to join in on her smashing good plan.
And this, of course, is my Lotus quilt in progress. I've made two of block style A and two of block style B. These watermelon reds are up next to become Lotus blocks. Solids are Freespirit solids and prints are Diamond Mine and Wanderer Seeds. Maybe this weekend?
But speaking of bee blocks, I don't believe I ever showed you April's. We made monkey wrench blocks (similar to churn dash) with low value backgrounds and bright and/or navy wrenches.
I couldn't pass up the chance to feature that curious rabbit and moons print. This blocks shows it off so well! You can find Moon Bunnies Mochi still at Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory! Low volume backgrounds are Architextures Ledger in Gray and Nicey Jane Hop Dot.
